With the improvement of people’s quality of life, more and more hearing impaired people choose hearing aids to improve communication. However, why some people’s hearing aids can be used for many years, and some people’s hearing aids often “sound the alarm” – not to return to the factory for repair, or the sound is no longer as clear as it was at the beginning?
Common faults of hearing aids mainly include silence, noise, small sound, and noise. The causes of silence include the lack of power or voltage of the hearing aid; the ear hooks are dampened, blocked, broken, blocked by the baffle; the ear mold, the sound tube is broken, falling off, blocking the microphone; the microphone dust net is dirty or clogged; The pole pieces are deformed and rusted. The reason for the noise is that the microphone dust filter is dirty; the fitting parameters are improper (very small or low frequency amplification too much). The hearing aid sound is small due to ear canal foreign body or hearing loss; battery power or voltage is insufficient; ear mold, sound tube is broken or blocked; microphone dust net is dirty or blocked; hearing aid accessories are faulty; gain or output is too low.
The hearing aid’s receiver is its core component, and the replacement and repair costs are relatively expensive (except during the warranty period), so proper maintenance is very important for the user and is the most immediate practice. Especially for users in the ear, it is necessary to take care of the receiver. The 3 maintenance points of the in-ear machine are anti-smashing, moisture-proof and machine-proof.
Key point 1: Flood control
Dr. Yang Xinyi pointed out that users should clean the ear canal before wearing the hearing aid. If there is a small amount of sputum or sputum near the ear canal, you can clean it yourself. If there are more sputum or deeper position, be sure to go to the hearing center and ask the expert to take it out. In addition, the user should clean the mouthpiece of the receiver (the tamper-proof device) every day and maintain the reliability of the tamper-proof device. The device can effectively prevent the entry of the cymbal and prolong the life of the receiver.
Experts suggest that the baffle is the most important protection device for the custom machine. Nowadays, the traditional white net cover, hat net cover and the baffle plate for extending the sound tube can not meet the needs of all users. Users can choose a new generation of anti-smashing baffle according to their needs. Among them, the baffle plate with the push-type elastic head can quickly clean the cockroaches stuck in the holes, and can be reused, suitable for dry squatting users. The new 耵聍 baffle base with oil-proof 直径 is larger than 3.8 mm, which has great requirements on the ear canal, and the user should pay attention to the net cover to reduce the gain of the hearing aid 3dB. HF4 net cover is characterized by fine mesh, which is not easy to fall into the receiver when it is replaced, and is suitable for large dry users.
Point two: moisture
Yang Xinyi suggested that swimming, bathing, washing your hair, washing your face before taking out the in-ear hearing aid, cleaning the ear canal with cotton swabs; before touching or adjusting the hearing aid, you must dry the water on your hands; try to avoid outdoor or high humidity in rainy days. Wearing hearing aids in an environment, once used in these environments, should be thoroughly dried using electronic or ordinary desiccant as soon as possible.
Point three: anti-drop
Experts point out that the ear machine is usually small in size, its internal structure is very precise, and the thickness of the outer casing is less than 0.8 mm. It may cause sound distortion or smallness after being subjected to impact or falling. It may easily cause shell cracking after falling to hard ground. . To prevent the hearing aid from falling during wearing, it is recommended that children and the elderly choose a circular cable. In addition, when wearing a hearing aid, the hearing aid should be held with your thumb and forefinger, and the hearing aid should be pulled out while rotating. Never pull the battery compartment door and the program button to avoid the battery door breaking and the degree of button falling off.
Experts pointed out that “the person who has the longest contact time with the hearing aid is the user. The correct use and maintenance are very important. It is a little trick, but many users just ignore these aspects and make the hearing aid use effect and life. It is affected. Therefore, it is called to strengthen the training of hearing aid users, and the correct maintenance methods are eliminated. The hearing aids will really sound the alarm.”
