Wind: Great for Many Things but not Hearing Aids

Have you ever heard the loud, annoying sounds of someone blowing into a microphone? That's pretty much what hearing aid wearers experience on windy days, or even just riding their bike or riding in a convertible. You can imagine how enjoyable this is! 


Tips to Protect your Hearing Aids During Summer

Longer days. Popsicles. Sunny patios. Time off school. Ahhhh. Summer is here! If these summer treats aren’t your cup of iced tea and you have bigger plans like an overseas vacation, a week at the beach, a theme park, or a golf trip - we've got the hearing aid tips to beat the heat wherever your summer takes you! Your hearing aids need to be protected from not only the heat but wha t comes with it; sweat, dirt, sand, rain, humidity, lake or salt water, wind noise and even loss. 


Protect your Hearing Aids at the Beach

It's the time of year where summer getaways are in the planning stage. The beach is calling our name.  And for most of us, our checklist for the beach covers the regular items: sunscreen, towels, flip flops, swimsuit, water, and snacks. Having these necessities stowed in the beach bag should get you through the typical beach day, problem-free.   However, if you wear hearing aids, other concerns could cause problems through the day like splashing waves, humidity, sweat, and that sand - oh, that sand that gets everywhere!
