People often have the impression that the more expensive a hearing aid is, the longer it will last. But in fact, many people say that the extremely expensive hearing aid bought several years ago doesn’t seem to have a long service life. What’s the matter?
In fact, the service life of the hearing aid has a lot to do with the user (or the user’s family), just like a mobile phone or a car, some people use it for four or five years and it’s still as new, some people use it for one year and it’s going to be scrapped. From the feedback data of all big brand hearing aids, there are no particularly strong hearing aids or particularly vulnerable hearing aids. In fact, the average service life of almost all big brand hearing aids is almost the same, but why do we feel that the service life of your < a href = "http://www.sqhearing.com/tlkp/64.html" target = "_blank" > hearing aids is longer < / a >?

For example, if we use an 8000 yuan mobile phone or a 2000 yuan mobile phone, which one has a long service life? Without loss or damage, we will use 8000 yuan mobile phones for a period of time involuntarily, and we will take more care of your mobile phones, so we will feel that your time is longer psychologically. The same goes for hearing aids.
Is the price and quality of hearing aids necessarily related?
Every regular hearing aid is produced under strict quality management. Their design service life and quality are almost the same. The service life of hearing aid is largely related to the later use and maintenance. The better the user cares, the better the maintenance, the longer the service time for us. Of course, different hearing aids will have differences in protection details, such as the differences in waterproof and moisture-proof, dust-proof and shockproof technology, but these differences have little impact on the service life of hearing aids.
How to prolong the service life of hearing aids?
For most people, we hope that the longer the service life of hearing aids is, the better. After all, hearing aids are expensive. If you don’t need to replace better hearing aids, you still hope to use them when they can’t be used quickly.
1. Small things are easy to be lost, so pay attention to wearing
First of all, the most important thing is to prevent the loss. According to a statistics from the American hearing aid industry association, 5% of hearing aid users will lose their hearing aids, and 40% of them will no longer choose hearing aids (mainly adults) after losing them. Once hearing aids are lost, the chances of finding them are very small. Besides being small, many people don’t know about hearing aids and their value.
2. Take a bath and wash your hair
When taking a bath, remember to take off the hearing aid, which sounds ridiculous. You may wonder how anyone can forget to take off the hearing aid and take a bath. However, the data shows that such carelessness is not uncommon. Many people think of the hearing aid at the moment of flushing. At this time, the hearing aid may have been flooded.
3. Rain water corrodes and splashes microphone
Take a walk in the rain. If you don’t have an umbrella or raincoat, remove the hearing aid. Many hearing aids have the function of life waterproof, but we still suggest to take them down. It may not be a problem with light rain, but once the raindrop is a little big, it may directly fall on or splash on the hearing aids. The hearing aids have the property of waterproof, but the rain is not completely clean water, may have corrosive components, which will damage the microphone of hearing aids.
4. Over 60% of the children’s hearing aids repaired were broken
When children first wear it, we try to let them wear it on the bed or sofa to avoid hearing aids falling to the ground. According to the maintenance data of various manufacturers, the maintenance rate of children’s hearing aids is far higher than that of adults. Although parents will deny that the hearing aids are broken, the technical personnel of manufacturers are aware of this.
5. Love it and give it dry care every day
Pay attention to dry maintenance, especially when some elderly people live alone use hearing aids, they often forget to replace the dry cakes, or forget for too long which color the dry cakes become before they need to be replaced. We suggest that the date should be written on the dry cakes, and they should be replaced according to the wet conditions in different regions.
6. Don’t commit two crimes when the equipment enters water
When the hearing aid gets water, you need to pull out the battery immediately, dry it with a dry soft cloth, and then dry it with a drying box or electronic drying box. Never dry with a hair dryer or microwave (don’t laugh, it’s true). As long as the equipment is powered off in time after water inflow, the circuit board can still be saved if it is not powered on. Do not try to start it before it is completely dry.
7. The repair of hearing aids should be done by professionals
When there is an unknown fault, do not dismantle it by yourself, and send it to the hearing aid company for maintenance as soon as possible. Some people may live in a place where it is inconvenient to send express to the manufacturer, so they want to find an electrician in the local place to have a look. This small trouble may become a big one.
Through this article, we should have a basic understanding of the service life of hearing aids. From the perspective of users, hearing aids are our ears and tools for us to listen to the world and communicate with the outside world. But in essence, hearing aids are still electronic products. On the day when the equipment is getting older, we always say that we are friends with hearing aids and that friends love each other. You are helpful to them The better the hearing device, the longer it will stay with you. Write the last sentence in imitation of a sentimental sentence on the Internet: you may have many hearing aids in your life, but for hearing aids, they only have you in their life.
