Don’t let the heat hurt your hearing aids!
With the summer here, it’s great to be able to enjoy the warm weather and spend time outdoors, but for hearing aid users it can present some problems.
Hearing aids can be damaged when exposed to the heat and humidity. Temperature changes can cause condensation, and increased perspiration in the hot weather can prevent them from working properly.
