Why are my hearing aids whistling?
Hearing aid squealing or hearing aid whistling is technically known as Hearing Aid Feedback or Acoustic feedback. The hearing aids elevate the sound picked up by the microphone; this sound reaches the ear canal. If this sound leaks out of the ear, it may be picked up by the same microphone and amplified again which is referred to as hearing aid feedback. In the latest digital hearing aids, this feature involves the automatic suppression or reduction in the sound when the hearing aid detects the feedback.
Why won’t my hearing aid stay in my ear?
Whether it’s a Behind-the-ear or Receiver-in-the-canal or a Complete-in-the-canal or any style or type of hearing aid has to fit well into the ears. At times, you need to twist the hearing aid a little or pull the earlobes a little to make room for the hearing aids to get into the right fit and position. If the fit is not right, the hearing aid may come off.
Why does my hearing aid keep turning off and on?
The reason to frequent off and on for hearing aid could be water or moisture. A mixture in any form can spoil your hearing aid unless your hearing aid is water-resistant. Secondly, a hearing aid with a weak or dying battery will also shut down at times in between.
