Which Hearing Aids use which Wax Guard?


Niamh Harnett


Wax guards are an essential part of the maintenance of hearing aids, an estimated 50% of hearing aids that require repair are a result of wax or debris buildup. 

When it comes to wax guards it is important to know the different types:

1) Some wax guards use a tool like a small stick with two sides, one for removing the existing wax guard and one for attaching the new one.

2) Other wax guards have a round design with a port for removing and another port for replacing the wax guard. This design is dependent on the manufacturers.
