Common hearing aid problems

Sound issues (beeping, whistling, hissing)

If you're experiencing static noise, it could be due to debris or earwax. Clean the components following the manufacturer's guidelines. For feedback like whistling, ensure the hearing aid fits properly, clean your ears, or adjust the volume. Muffled sounds may be caused by earwax blockage, damaged tubing, or microphone issues. 

Inspect the tubing and consult professionals if needed. Hissing sounds might indicate a low battery, electronic interference, or amplifier issues. Replace the hearing aid batteries
and minimise interference. If issues persist, seek professional help. Understanding and addressing these sound-related concerns ensures your hearing aids perform optimally. For ongoing issues, consult our experts for personalised assistance.
