As you know, when you have hearing aids they become an important part of your life. Helping you communicate with everyone in your life is no small feat. Since hearing aids are so valuable and you learn to rely on them, planning for a backup pair can bring about many benefits. Here are 4 reasons a backup hearing aid comes in handy.
- Never miss hearing anything. If you carry a spare pair of hearing aids with you as a backup, you won’t worry about not hearing if your battery dies or if a problem occurs with your current hearing aid.
- When you are charging your hearing aids, a backup pair can help you hear during that time period.
- For travel. When you are away from home, the last thing you want to happen is to not be able to hear while on vacation or in an unfamiliar environment. Plus, you aren’t near our offices so that makes it difficult to bring your hearing aid in for a quick repair. Always bring your spare hearing aid with you whenever you travel.
- Recycle and reuse! Rather than just throwing away an old pair of hearing aids, you can keep them and still get use out of them as a backup to your new hearing aid.
How to Get a Spare Pair of Hearing Aids
Most people don’t go out and just buy a second pair of hearing aids. However, with all of the new technological advances in hearing aid technology, some people opt to get a new hearing aid with newer features or connectivity options. For other people, their hearing aid needs change, but can still use the old pair as a backup. Your spare pair of hearing aids should be stored in a safe, dry place in the proper container so that they are ready for you when you need them. Don’t keep them in your car or any place where they might be exposed to extreme temperatures or water.
