New Hearing Aids When To Replace An Old One? How often do hearing aid batteries need to be replaced? and do you need to upgrade your hearing aids? This is a topic about the lifespan of hearing aids, and hearing aid wearers often ask this question.

For hearing aid wearers, the device offers a means to manage their hearing loss and improve their quality of life in an instant, so naturally they come to depend on its reliability. There might come a time, perhaps sooner than one may think where a new or replacement hearing aid should be considered. Here are a few common scenarios.

1. Change of style and moving with the times - Hearing aids are split into types by the way in which they fit the ear. The most recently popular design is a mini or micro open fitting behind-the-ear(BTE) which as the name suggest, fits behind the ear of the wearer. In recent years more thought has gone into the contemporary design of hearing aids with an aim to make the device smaller, more compact and the holy grail... more discreet. Changing style is a common consideration for replacing the aid in particular with regards to comfort. 

2. New technology - Most of us are familiar with the scenario of buying an electronic device which at the time of purchase is the most advanced or current model to quickly discover that a new model is on its way with newer technology. While technological improvements in the hearing aid industry won’t rival the likes of mobile phones for example, technology is continually improving. Amplification grows, sound is better distinguished, new features added and other recent developments make hearing aids an even better solution today than they were even a few short years ago.

3. Broken or damaged hearing aid - Repairing a device when its out of warranty can be very costly. If there was ever a logical situation to consider a new hearing aid, this is the one. Even if the aid was fixed professionally and is now in working order, hearing aids (and in particular in the ear  (ITC) hearing aids) are susceptible to moisture and wax damage. A new hearing aid will come with a new warranty covering the complete device, not just the most recently replaced part as can often be the case with repaired hearing aids. 

4. Affordability - Xiamen AUSTAR provide affordable hearing aids. There are cheap hearing aids and high-end hearing aids for you to choose from.
