How to maintain your hearing aid

Please keep your hearing aid as dry and clean as possible, as moisture/dampness and foreign objects (such as earwax, ear fluid, etc.) will affect the lifespan and performance of the hearing aid.

  1. Please use a cleaning brush or soft cloth to clean the stains on the switch, microphone, and battery cover of the hearing aid.
  2. You should never use water, solvents, cleaning fluids, or cleaning oils to clean your hearing aid.
  3. If the rechargeable hearing aid is not used for a long time, please charge it regularly every week. If the battery-powered hearing aid is not used for a long time, please remove the battery.

If the hearing aid you purchased comes with a charging box, please store your hearing aid in the charging box and properly keep it in:

– A dry, safe place

– Avoid direct sunlight

– Avoid excessively high or low temperatures

– A place where you can easily find it

– Avoid places where babies and children can reach
