Question: How many years should I expect my hearing aids to last
Answer: A good rule of thumb is four to five years. Hearing aids will continue working and making sound at that time, but most people begin to notice their aids are not performing as well as they once did. Wearing hearing aids all day, every day for 365 days a year, for four to five years in environments of dust, sweat, humidity, pollens, and more will impact their performance over time. Management of background noise and soft speech begins to decline.
Technology continues to advance and after five years, so much has improved. Listening to newer hearing aid technology in noisy environments will confirm this for you. Schedule a complimentary consult to listen to today’s state-of-the-art hearing technology.
