“Hearing the happy gurgles of my grandchild is
a priceless gift”
You just got fitted for a hearing aid and you can’t wait to hear all the sounds you’ve been missing. Then you find out there’s a list of hearing accessories that you may also need. Don’t worry, there is some maintenance involved with caring for your hearing device, but upkeep is not costly or complicated.
Our Audiologists will show you what you need – and what you don’t – to get the most out of your hearing aid.
Basic Hearing Aid Accessories
- Batteries – Some hearing aids run on rechargeable batteries but many still depend on disposable batteries.
- Hearing Aid Battery Tester – A tester can ensure that you’re never caught off guard with a low battery.
- Hearing Aid Dehumidifier (also known as a “dry and store.”) – Moisture can cause damage to the sensitive workings of a hearing aid. A dehumidifier is recommended for people who live in humid regions or must expose their hearing devices to excessive moisture. Dry and store’s also sanitize the hearing aid as it dries.
- Wax Brushes, Picks, and Guards – These items help prevent ear wax from seeping into or clogging the hearing aid.
Other accessories that can improve your hearing and make life with hearing loss easier include phone pads, telephones with volume control, hearing aids that are Bluetooth compatible and a personal amplifier.
In addition, Asheville Audiology Services sells the Music Link that streams MP3 and iPods directly to hearing aids. Infrared TV systems like the TV EARS are also sold.
For your convenience, most of the basic hearing accessories you need can typically be purchased in a hearing aid kit. Ask your Audiologist for more information about hearing loss solutions.
