How often do I change the ear dome of hearing aid?

It is determined by the color and texture of ear dome. Normal ear dome is bright white, soft and elastic. If it turns yellow and hard, it should be replaced. The specific replacement frequency depends on the use and care of each person. Generally, patients with otitis media and those with oily ear secretion should be replace ear dome more frequently and may use new ear dome every two or three months. Generally it should be replaced every six months with good care.

If it's the ear dome or ear mold used by a child, the child's ear mold should be replaced more frequently. Because the length of the child's ear changes rapidly, the ear mold needs to be replaced in about 3 months, and the replacement time will be shorter when the child is a little older. If it is an adult ear mold it depends on whether the user has the intention to protect it. Generally speaking, the ear mold needs to be replaced if it is damaged or blocked. 3-6 months to the hearing center regularly for cleaning. In daily life, the hearing aid should pay attention to damp-proof (to avoid large temperature difference, heavy moisture), waterproof (do not wear it when washing your face or bathing), prevent falling (avoid little children and animals touch hearing aids. When wearing, try to sit on soft places, such as sofa or bed) and prevent corrosion (do not use alcohol to wipe the device; replace the battery in time, and remember to remove the battery to avoid battery leakage and corrosion if don’t use the device for long time). You usually needs to clean earwax, or regularly send to the Hearing Center for cleaning.

Can hearing aids be recycled?

From the perspective of commodities, it is only a form of preferential activities or feedback to customers from manufacturers or distributors. With the development of science and technology, the new generation of hearing aids is just like the current electronic products, and new products will come out every one or two years. In general, the average time for ordinary users to use hearing aids is about 5 years, during which a lot of new products have come out.

Considering the particularity of products, the problem of discontinuation of production, lack of repair parts etc., the greater difference between hearing aids and other electronic products lies in the use environment and frequency. Some people say that the use frequency of mobile phones is also very high, but mobile phones generally do not face sweat, earwax and wet ear canal environment. Hearing aids are often hung behind or plugged in the ear canal. In addition to paying attention to maintenance and avoiding falling, after-sales service and maintenance problems are also very important.

So it doesn't make much sense to recycle the hearing aid. Our hearing center will not recycle the old hearing aids when it carries out the “old for new” promotion. Customers will test and match new hearing aids with relative discount based on their old ones. In addition to the reasons mentioned above, there are also reasons such as children changing hearing aids. Most of the time, the used children hearing aids are relatively new. Parents want to use new technology and then change their children’s hearing aids. At this time, the data of old hearing aids detected by hearing aids analyzer is up to standard, which can be recycled. However, considering that children are generally lively and active, it is more meaningful for customers to keep the old ones for backup.
