For anyone new to hearing aids, the process of putting them in and taking them out each day can be a little confusing.

So the House of Hearing team has put together a short video on how this process works with behind the ear devices.

The more you practice, the easier this will become. These are some of the key points to remember:

  • The thick part of the hearing aid, which stores the battery, goes behind your ear, while the wire that comes out of it will sit inside.
  • To begin, put the thick piece behind your ear while holding onto the wire.
  • Then, tuck the wire into your ear canal, pushing it down with one finger.
  • You’ll know its fitted correctly when the wire is snug against your ear.

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