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 hearing professionals 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 most 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 DriAid kit) – 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. Some dehumidifiers also sanitize the hearing aid as it dries.
Wax Brushes, Picks, and Guards – These items help prevent earwax from seeping into or clogging the hearing aid.
Other accessories that can help make living with hearing loss easier include phone pads, amplified telephones or alarm clocks, and wireless and Bluetooth assistive devices.
