A guide to using and
How to insert your hearing aids
- Different hearing aids have different insertion techniques, but you’ll be shown how yours fit in store.
- Your hearing aids come with coloured tabs printed on them: red goes in your right ear and blue goes in your le. If your hearing aids aren’t inserted properly, they might not help your hearing as much as they could – and they might cause a little discomfort and some feedback.
- But if your aids are uncomfortable, despite being fitted properly, get back in touch with your hearing aid audiologist in store.
- And if your aids are inserted properly and you can still hear feedback, check our troubleshooting guide for possible causes and ways to fix them.
