Are You a Hearing Aid Wearer with an Active Lifestyle?
You should not have to drastically modify or slow down your daily activities due to your hearing loss. If you are an athlete, a musician, work with your community, or need to take your dog for a walk, there are hearing aid solutions to fit your lifestyle.
When you go outside, the weather may disrupt the function of most hearing aids. Moisture and wind may alter the sound quality and performance of common hearing devices. Moving quickly while jogging or engaging in other active sports may cause your hearing aid to fall out of your ear. The ability to appreciate listening to others talk, hearing a performance or engaging in a social environment could be prevented by poor quality of sound. Fortunately, most of the latest hearing aid devices are able to endure any of these concerns.
WIDEX SUPER™ Hearing Aids
At Pure Sound Hearing Aids, the hearing aid solution that we offer for an active lifestyle is the WIDEX SUPER™ model. The sound of wind blowing into your hearing aid is a common, and frustrating, experience. The WIDEX SUPER™ is a receiver-in-the-ear hearing aid that has a patented wind protection microphone cover. This protects a user when they are in a windy environment. Wearers can engage in an outdoor sport, or go outside on a windy day, without the problem of background noise.
Here are also some tips on what you can do when sweat and moisture come in contact with your hearing aids.
