  • Caring For YourBehind-The-Ear Hearing Aids
  • Behind-the-ear (BTE) hearing aids, are a style of hearing instrument that consists oftwo main portions connected by a thin tube.
  • The external piece sits on top of the ear connecting to the second piece by a thintube running along the front of the ear. The second piece is a custom fit ear piece, called an ear mold, made with a silicone impression of your ear.
  • The thin tubing that connects the externalpiece to the ear mold needs to be supple, soft, flexible, and without damage toproperly conduct sound from the external piece to the ear.
  • Over time, this tube will naturally become hard, brittle, and discolored. Cracks may even form in the tubing, causing a loss ofsound. When this occurs, call your hearinghealthcare professional for an appointment to replace with new tubing.
  • The ear mold must also be kept clean andclear to have good sound quality. Wipe off the outside of the ear mold with a clean cloth. Keep the vent and sound opening free of debris and wax.
  • If washed, the ear mold must remain detached until fully dry. Do not removeyour ear mold without speaking with your provider first.
  • Using a clean, dry cloth wipe down theoutside of the external portion that sits on top of the ear. This portion needs to be kept clean and free of debris, especially near the microphone openings.
  • If you ever uncertain, give your hearinghealthcare professional a call. They will be able to guide you through care andmaintenance of your specific hearing aid.
