How important is it to wear that little retainer wire that is attached to the bottom of your HA - the “curvy” wire that fits in the shell of your ear when your HA is fully inserted?
I believe the stated purpose for that wire is to help prevent losing your hearing aid. For me it’s way more comfortable to go without them. I have VERY sensitive and very small curving ear canals and I believe that the retainer wires increase the pressure contact of the HA receiver against the walls of my canals. When I removed the retainers that ear canal contact pressure decreased and made the ear canal pain I’ve always experienced decrease materially.
So… what’s your opinion? Is it very important for safety against loss. Appreciate your experience and recommendations.
