Hearing aid is intermittent
Problem: The hearing aid is cutting in and out and/or the sound quality is distorted.
- Moisture can sometimes cause a hearing aid to be intermittent or distorted. If you notice the problem occurs after exercising, gardening, or other activities where you may perspire, it could be moisture. Remove the battery from the device and store in a hearing aid saver overnight. Replace the battery in the morning and place in your ear, if the problem persists, call to schedule a hearing aid check appointment.
- Intermittency and distortion can also occur when a component of the hearing aid malfunctions. These problems are best addressed through a hearing aid check appointment.
