If you’ve recently taken a hearing assessment and invested in new devices, it might feel a little strange to put them in your ear each day.

You might also have concerns about how they should sit inside your ears, which is completely normal.

That’s why the House of Hearing team has put together a short video on how this works for in-ear devices.

These are the simple things to remember when putting your hearing aid in correctly:

  • Blue on a hearing aid indicates it’s for your left ear; red on a hearing aid indicates it’s for your right.
  • The thinner end of the hearing aid sits in your ear canal, while the thicker end will cover the outer part.
  • Push the hearing aid into your ear until you can’t push anymore.
  • Now, it will remain in your ear, and it won’t fall out!

If you have any concerns or worries about your hearing aids, contact the team. They’re ready to help you now!
