Hearing aids can do so much to improve your quality of life. However, if you do not properly clean and maintain your hearing aids, their effectiveness may wane or they may stop working altogether. Replacing the parts on your hearing aids regularly will help you get the most out of your hearing aid and extend its life.
In this article, we'll discuss:
How often should I replace the parts on my hearing aids?
In addition to cleaning your hearing aids, it's also important to periodically replace the tips, tubing, and/or wax guards. Even with regular cleaning, the parts on your hearing aid will not last forever. Eventually, these accessories will discolor, stiffen, or lose their shape over time—which can decrease the quality of sound reaching your ear.
How often you replace these parts depends on the type of part. Below are our recommendations, but it never hurts to replace them sooner if you feel they are wearing out quicker. Everyone is different.

- Replace ComfortTIPs every 3 months
- Replace domes once a month
