Hearing Aid Wax Filters

Hearing aids have a couple ways to prevent wax from getting into the hearing aids. If you have a clear tube there is no filter to change so you can skip this section.

The filters are white and are located on the canal of the hearing aid. How often you need to change the filter is different for everyone. If you hearing aid has stopped working and you have a fresh hearing aid battery in try changing the filter. Here are the steps to follow.

Gently press the empty side of the shaft into the old filter in your hearing aid. The used filter will stay attached to the shaft as you pull it back.

Turn the shaft around an put the new filter back in the same hole and press gently. Gently pull the shaft back. If you experience any difficulty give the office a call and we would be glad to help you practice changing the filter .
