My Hearing Aid Is Squealing!

Is your hearing aid making strange noises? Clarity can help!

You might have gotten hearing aids recently, or you might have gotten them a long time ago. That fact is the first key in figuring out why your hearing aid is squealing. Many people wonder why their hearing aid is squealing, buzzing, beeping, and whistling. It could be a simple solution, and if the reason is still unclear, you need not fret; Clarity Audiology is here!

Reasons Your Hearing Aid Is Squealing

Excess Earwax

The first reason that your hearing aid might be squealing is impacted earwax. If you have too much earwax, it could impact how sound waves reach your ears and your hearing aids and produce feedback. If you have dry earwax that impacts easily, then it is possible that professional earwax removal would be the safest and most thorough route. Other ways to remove earwax include ear drops, hydrogen peroxide, mineral oil, and saline.

Improper Fit

Another reason would be that you have not achieved the right fit. If you got hearing aids recently, it could take a while before your hearing aids fit your ears perfectly. That is why there are multiple meetings after you initially get your hearing aids to make sure they are working properly.

Improper Molding

Similarly, it could be that the hearing aid mold is not as it should be. If your hearing devices need to be molded to your ear to fit right, then it is possible that something went wrong. If you know that the fit is as good as it can be and that the mold’s shape is the problem, then you will have to get the mold redone.

Mechanical Problem

If the fit is right and your ears are clean, then it would be a mechanical problem. If you cannot fix this mechanical problem on your own, you can seek a professional to troubleshoot and find a solution.
