Inserting hearing aids for maximum comfort can be tricky, but you can do it easily with a few simple steps.
- Ensure your hands are clean and dry before touching your hearing aid.
- Gently insert the hearing aid's receiver into your ear canal, ensuring it is snug but not uncomfortable.
- If you're experiencing difficulty inserting your hearing aid, try pulling gently on your ear lobe and push or aim the receiver towards your nose.
- Once the hearing aid is in place, adjust the volume and settings if needed.
If you're using a Receiver-in-Canal (RIC) or Behind-the-Ear (BTE) hearing aid, you might wonder how they differ. RIC hearing aids have the speaker located in the ear canal, while BTE hearing aids have the speaker located behind the ear with all its other electronic parts.
