How to Protect your Hearing Aids from Moisture

The single most important thing that you can do to care for your hearing aid is to protect it from moisture, as hearing aids are prone to breaking down due to the corrosive effects of humidity and perspiration.

Some warning signs that your hearing aid may be damaged due to moisture are:

  • Static or crackling sounds—corrosion of electrical connections can create a lot of unwanted static in your ears.
  • Distorted sounds or fluctuations in volume—damaged connections can create uneven performance in the audio output of your hearing aid.
  • Intermittent outages—if your hearing aid suddenly turns off, then turns back on, corrosion may have damaged the contacts. 

We at the Hearing Institute of Ontario realize the benefits of a dry hearing aid, which includes better sound quality, a more reliable product and an aid that will last longer.  We have the solutions to keeping your hearing aids dry.  Please contact us if you have any questions or concerns.

At the Hearing Institute of Ontario, your hearing health is important to us.
