hearing aid accessories

This article discusses what hearing aid accessories are, how to choose them, some examples of products.

What are hearing aid accessories?

There is a variety of hearing aid accessories available. Some, such as batteries, earwax filters and cleaning tools, are essential, and these usually come as part of the package when a person purchases a hearing aid. Individuals can also source them from an audiologist or in a store.

Other accessories, such as transmitters and receivers, streaming devices, and charging stations, are optional, but some people may find them useful.

Individuals usually purchase these separately from the hearing aid device itself.

How to choose

How to choose a hearing aid accessory depends on a person’s lifestyle and requirements.

Some people might prefer wireless accessories, as these are more discreet and may be easier to use than products with lots of wires.

Those who are active and participate in physical activity may benefit from purchasing a dehumidifier for their hearing aid. A dehumidifier cleans the device and takes moisture away from the hearing aid to prevent degradation and bacteria growth. Individuals cannot use a dehumidifier while they are using their hearing aids. Some dehumidifiers have LED lights to show when a hearing aid is clean and ready for use.

Usually, a person can only use hearing aid accessories in conjunction with the same brand’s devices. This means that a person may only be able to purchase accessories from the same company that provided their hearing aid.
