Hearing Aid Repairs You Can Do at Home
We’re pleased to introduce DIY Hearing Aid Care – a new video series from the Center for Hearing and Communication (CHC) to help you do simple hearing aid repairs at home.
I’m Anita Stein-Meyers, a CHC audiologist and Assistant Director of the Shelley and Steven Einhorn Audiology Center at CHC. While CHC’s audiology team is always here to support your needs, sometimes you can do it yourself. We hope these short video clips can walk you through the process of hearing aid care at home.
Each video shows you the supplies you’ll need to work with. Some supplies you may already have and others you can improvise with. However, you may need to purchase certain supplies, so don’t hesitate to contact us for assistance in accessing whatever parts and tools you might need.
Good luck and and stay tuned as we add more videos to address more of your hearing aid repair needs!
