What is the average lifespan of a hearing aid?

Hearing aids can last anywhere from three years to seven — for some people, even longer. Variables affecting this lifespan include how well the instrument is built, how well it’s maintained, and how much wear and tear it experiences being worn in your ear for many hours a day.

What is the difference in hearing aid domes?

Open domes: Allow some natural noise to pass trough the dome. While this delivers a more natural sound quality, the low frequencies amplified by the hearing aid will dissipate. Closed domes tend to reduce feedback, and help amplify low frequency sounds. The venting in these domes help to mitigate the occlusion effect.

What is the difference between vented and closed hearing aid domes?

“An Open Style dome has openings for sound to pass through from outside of the hearing aid. This helps people from experiencing what is called the occlusion effect. A Closed Style dome is meant to reduce the sound from outside the hearing aid so it can more aggressively boost the sound level.

Why is my hearing aid uncomfortable?

If you recently purchased hearing aids and notice pain in one of your ears, there are three possibilities you should carefully consider: (1) the hearing aid does not fit your ear properly, (2) you have an infected ear, or (3) the hearing aid is not inserted correctly.

How tight should hearing aid be?

The pre-bent tube should be snug but not tight. If the area at the top of the ear or ear canal becomes tender within the first few hours of wearing the hearing aid, it indicates that the tube is too short.
