Hiking with a hearing aid? 4 Tips to Help

It's no surprise that hearing instruments take a little bit of getting used to. Most people adjust pretty quickly to their new hearing instrument during normal indoor settings, like work or home. We have many customers that are also avid hikers and we've heard from them that it's not quite such an easy adjustment.


The Ear Gear Story

Our Daughter Shameera was born in October 1996. She was our second child. Both my wife and I quickly realized that she was not meeting her developmental milestones. Testing revealed that she had a rare chromosome abnormality called Partial Trisomy 18. In addition to having a significant cognitive delay, Shameera also had a mild to moderate hearing loss which was diagnosed at the age of two. She started wearing behind the ear hearing aids soon after. Then came the challenge. How to keep them on!


The Answer to Wearing Hearing Aids and Glasses, Comfortably
