Thanks to the wonders of modern technology, hearing aids are now able to dramatically improve your hearing and make your life easier at the same time. Super sleek technology lets you connect seamlessly with audio from your cell phone calls, TV, digital radio, heck…even your doorbell!
But, when it comes down to the nitty gritty, there are a few accessories that can make your life that little bit easier that we’d highly recommend.
Hearing aid dehumidifiers
Humans are made up of around 60% water, so it’s little wonder then that your hearing aids collect moisture. The thing is, hearing aids work best when they’re kept nice and dry. Leave that condensation lurking in your treasured hearing aids and they just won’t perform as well. These little dehumidifiers keep your hearing aids free of excess moisture.
Hearing aid cleaning kits
Hearing aids these days are tiny. Whilst this is fantastic news for keeping things discreet, cleaning them can be fiddly. Luckily there are such things as hearing aid cleaning kits. One of these handy kits has everything you need to get your hearing aids spick and span in a jiffy.
Hearing aid remote controls
Need to notch the volume up a little? Or perhaps you want to change from directional sound to ambient? A hearing aid remote lets you wirelessly change the settings of your hearing aids quickly without having to fiddle with the tiny buttons behind your ears.
Hearing aid transmitters
These work to give hearing aids a boost. Imagine you’re on a shopping trip with a friend. Sometimes they’re talking next to you, other times they’re in a different part of the store asking if you approve of that shirt. It can be a real pain to hear them clearly all the time, especially with the ever-changing background noise. However, clip a nifty transmitter onto your friend’s clothing, and you’ll be able to hear them clearly for the whole trip.
Let’s not forget these. Your hearing aids simply can’t do their job without power. Batteries are possibly the simplest but most vital accessory. Having spares can be a real lifesaver if you’re short on time.
