We are excited to embark on this journey with you. Successfully wearing and adjusting to your hearing aids takes practice. In this guide, we provide tips and daily best practices to help you through this adjustment period and get the most out of your hearing aids. Consult with your Hearing Care Specialist with any questions you may have along the way.
You may want to practice conversing with two or more people. At first, watch to identify which person is speaking, then try to separate each speaker by voice only. The more people, the more carefully you may have to concentrate to identify the speaker.
Mechanical reproductions of sound, such as televisions or radios, can impair understanding. Practice listening to or watching your favorite shows. If your TV or radio has a treble control, turning it up may make it easier to hear softer, high- pitched voices.
The use of hearing aids may accelerate ear wax accumulation. If ear wax blocks the vent or receiver tube, use the ear wax removal tool to clean it. Follow the instructions carefully; misuse can damage your hearing aid. Regularly removing wax and debris from your hearing aid will ensure optimal performance. If you have any questions on how to use this tool, please contact your Miracle-Ear Hearing Care Specialist.
If excessive wax accumulates in your ear, you may want to have it removed by a physician. If you encounter soreness or irritation, discontinue wearing your hearing aids and schedule an appointment with your Miracle-Ear Hearing Care Specialist. If you suspect you have an ear infection, discontinue wearing your hearing aids and consult a physician.
At Miracle-Ear®, we’re committed to ensuring everyone has the opportunity to hear all the wonderful sounds that life has to offer. That’s why, for every hearing aid sold, we donate a portion to the Miracle-Ear Foundation, which provides hearing aids to children and adults with hearing loss who cannot afford them. We do this because everyone should have the ability to live a life filled with connections and joy.
