Do your hearing aids cut in and out?
Could the season be the cause?
Cold weather can provide some challenges for hearing aid users. The dry, cold air can cause zinc hearing aid batteries to drain faster than usual, and condensation can build up within the hearing aids, causing them to malfunction.
If your hearing aid has condensation, you might experience:
- Sound cutting in and out
- Random interferences
You can prevent condensation from building up in your hearing aids by protecting them from the cold. You can wear a hat, ear muffs, and some manufacturers make specific sweatbands for hearing aid users. If your hearing aids don’t have direct exposure to the cold, they won’t change as much in temperature when you go back inside, causing less condensation. It’s still a good idea to swab them just in case. Make sure to store your hearing aids in dry place, not your pockets or heated areas like cars or by a vent.
