Changing Wax Guards

Most manufacturers use a wax basket style system to protect your hearing aid from ear wax.  

Widex and Oticon use this type of system, but the systems look different.  Widex wax baskets are on sticks (which are similar to Oticon’s first generation of wax baskets) and Oticon uses a “turtle-shaped” system.  Older Phonak hearing aids (Audeos, for example) use the same looking system as Widex hearing aids.

Phonak Marvel hearing aids use a very different type of system called Cerushields  Below is a video describing the process of changing your wax filter using the cerushields.

If you are considering hearing aids, I recommend Dr. Eleanor Wilson in the strongest terms. She is very knowledgeable and patiently explains the alternatives. Over the years, every time I’ve had a problem with my hearing aids, she has quickly solved it. In addition, she and her staff are also very friendly and easy to approach. One other thing, the business of aids for hearing is not strictly regulated in the way that, for example, doctors are. Whether you choose Dr. Wilson or not, be SURE to consult with a registered audiologist.
