Despite advancements in today’s technology, hearing aids are prone to damage. That’s because the tiny, intricate devices live in a very hostile environment full of moisture, germs and earwax. As such, it’s perfectly normal for hearing aids to act up every now and then. In fact, most hearing aids last about five to seven years before requiring replacement.
