Spring Cleaning...

Have you given your hearing aid a spring clean?

Change your tubing every 3-6 months for optimal performance. Once a year isn't enough. 

It’s important to ensure you keep tubing up to date, as it’s very susceptible to dirt, wax and grime. 

Hearing aids are used every day, they need to be fine-tuned and tidied up every now and then. Always ensure your hearing aid batteries are brushed out regularly, as dust can build up in the cartridge and cause malfunction. Before handling the batteries, ensure your own hands are nice and clean so the device doesn’t pick up any bacteria, food, or dirt particles. When you’re not using them, it’s best to keep battery cartridge doors open to avoid moisture buildup.

Top Tips:

  • As temperatures increase, it’s critical to remember not to leave hearing devices in direct sunlight.
  • Remove hearing devices before going in water and use device cleaning tools every day to avoid moisture damage or ear wax blockages.

In the article below discussing how the Royal Opera House (ROH) has lost its appeal over the life-changing hearing damage caused to a viola player at a rehearsal of Wagner's Die Walkure, Mr Goldscheider states how "The bell of a trumpet was immediately behind his right ear during the rehearsal and noise levels reached 132 decibels - roughly equivalent to that of a jet engine".

Speaking after the successful Court of Appeal's decision, he said: "I am grateful to the court for acknowledging that more should have been done to protect me and other musicians from the risk of permanent and life changing hearing problems. We all want to find a way to participate and share in the experience of live music in a safe and accessible way and I hope that the guidance which the Court of Appeal has given in my case will help others. I hope that the Royal Opera House will now support me to get on with rebuilding my life."
