After thorough fittings at the verification center, hearing aid users finally select the right hearing aids for themselves. However, neglecting small details during the initial stages of wearing hearing aids can affect your hearing experience in the long run.

So, what kind of details might you encounter when wearing hearing aids for the first time?

  • Itchy Ear Canal: If you experience persistent itching during the initial period of wearing hearing aids, it could be due to improper sizing or possibly an allergic reaction. Despite comprehensive allergy testing on the hearing aid shell, some users may still have reactions to commonly used silicone and acrylic materials.

  • Foreign Object Sensation: Similar to the discomfort of wearing glasses for the first time, wearing hearing aids may initially give you a sensation of something blocking your ears. This discomfort usually fades as you gradually adapt to it.

  • Ear Pain: Ear pain while wearing hearing aids can have various causes, such as irregularities on the custom shell surface, oversized custom earmolds, or the custom mechanism being too deep in the ear canal. Discuss these issues with your hearing aid fitter for a thorough analysis.

  • No Noticeable Difference in Hearing: Typically, wearing hearing aids should result in a noticeable improvement in hearing. If you don't experience this, it's advisable to contact your hearing aid fitter for a hearing assessment. Common reasons for this situation include earwax blockage, improper positioning, or the need for adaptive adjustments.

  • Hearing Aid Whistling: This may occur if the user sets the volume too high or if there is inadequate sealing between the custom shell and the ear mold. Additionally, hearing aid feedback may result from damage to the device.

  • Sound Too Loud When Wearing Hearing Aids: If the sound is uncomfortably loud when wearing hearing aids, it may indicate the need for adjustments. Contact your fitter promptly for troubleshooting.

  • Feeling of Ear Fullness: If you experience a sensation of increased volume when speaking, provide feedback to your fitter. Through adjustments, changing earplugs, or selecting a more suitable device, your fitter can help alleviate or eliminate discomfort.

  • Uncertainty About Proper Hearing Aid Placement: Correctly positioning your hearing aids makes a significant difference in your experience. If you're unsure about their exact placement in the ear canal or if they feel prone to falling off, seek guidance from your hearing aid fitter.

  • Difficulty Removing Hearing Aids: Some custom and in-the-ear hearing aids may not have pull strings. If removing the hearing aids or earmolds becomes challenging, consider using pull strings or exploring alternative hearing aid types.

In conclusion, achieving optimal hearing with hearing aids takes time and consistent practice. Engaging in regular listening exercises helps you adapt to your hearing aids more quickly, improving speech recognition. Patience is key, and as your brain gradually adjusts, the effectiveness of your hearing aids will continue to improve. If you experience significant discomfort during the wearing process, it's advisable to promptly visit a verification center for assistance.
