Hearing aid remote control
It can be annoying to have to remove a hearing aid in order to make adjustments to the volume or settings. Getting a remote control for your hearing aids is a great way to avoid that annoyance. With the remote you can make those adjustments from the device without having to remove or even touch your hearing aids.
Hearing aid cleaning kits
It’s always a good idea to regularly clean and maintain your hearing aids to ensure they last for a long time. To make cleaning easier and more effective, you can get cleaning and maintenance kits. They typically include things like special brushes, threads for cleaning tubes, wipes, drying jars and pallets, air blowers, and so on.
You can also get special cleaning devices that will safely clean and sterilize your hearing aids. They are especially useful for people who might not have the physical dexterity to clean small devices like hearing aids with precision.
You can purchase these kits and equipment individually, or get them through our Total Care Package.
Hearing aid clips
Hearing aid clips are a great way to help prevent them from falling off while you are wearing them, which is a great way to avoid losing them. They come in different styles, but in general they work by attaching a string to the hearing aids themselves, with a clip on the string to attach to your shirt. These are meant for the styles of hearing aids that sit behind your ear.
MiraCell is a lightweight serum that works to loosen impacted ear wax that builds up in your ears. Excessive ear wax can also affect how comfortably your hearing aids sit in your ears.
Years ago, Harris created an all-natural skin product—simply called MiraCell—designed to support the skin’s natural functions. According to Harris, the lightweight serum not only loosens impacted earwax, but also allows hearing aids to sit more comfortably in the ear and promotes a healthy keratin layer. Ears irritated by cotton-tipped swabs, ear impressions, gout, diabetes, or skin allergies can benefit from the use of MiraCell.
ASSISTIVE LISTENING DEVICES
Assistive Listening Devices are a particular kind of hearing accessory meant to enhance your hearing in specific situations. Here are some of the more popular examples that we get asked about:
Hearing amplification devices
Hearing amplification devices are similar to hearing aids in that they help amplify sound, however they are not customized or programmed for your particular hearing loss.
Pocket talkers are the most common amplification device, where you wear a small device that receives and amplifies sound to a headset you wear. It’s good for one-on-one conversations in a quiet environment where you don’t need to worry about it amplifying all background noise.
FM hearing system
FM listening system work to reduce background sound that can interfere with what you want to hear. They also help improve the clarity of conversations so you don’t get hearing fatigue from straining to hear as much.
