Hearing aids & care: How you can help us to keep your hearing aids “fit” in the summer.
It's hot, very hot in South Baden right now.
We would like to recommend our free hearing aid service to you. You are invited to stop by our specialty shop at any time! Because the current heat or summer rain can make hearing aid care difficult. Frequently questions arise and we would like to help you get your hearing systems “fit” through the summer. In this way we can work together to prevent any repairs or defects.
You can help us a lot with this! If one or both of your hearing systems is very stressed, for example by a hot day, simply wipe the entire hearing aid with a handkerchief. The earpiece (in which the loudspeaker is located in some modern hearing systems) can also be cleaned more frequently during this hot season. We recommend a skin-friendly disinfectant for cleaning, which should only be used in very small amounts. You are welcome to use this for the earpiece and hearing aid (a small amount is sufficient here).
Should one or both of your hearing systems fail, we will provide you with replacement devices (if it is feasible, e.g. due to your hearing needs). These are free of charge until a solution has been found together!
I would also like to recommend a dry box to you, as it creates a warm air flow that can significantly reduce moisture inside the housing of a hearing aid. An investment of around 60 euros that can prevent repairs in the long term. Because not every hearing aid wearer is the same, some are retirees, others in the middle of their professional lives, mothers or craftsmen. Not every hearing aid wearer needs a dry box, but it is worth thinking about. A small example of this: Hearing aid microphones have tiny and sensitive membranes that acoustically record your surroundings through an opening on the housing. Moisture, especially in the long term, is a problem for a microphone and can reduce its performance. We would be happy to advise you on this too!
So-called dry capsules are without electricity and practical for holidays. They are simply placed in the hearing system box and contain a silicate which, like the dry box, binds moisture.
If you have any questions, we look forward to a visit, a call or an email!
Stay healthy, best regards from Blumenstrasse
