How do you wear your hearing aids with masks?

My hearing loss is not extreme. If I’m doing something that doesn’t require my best hearing–like grocery shopping–I take my hearing aids out in the parking lot and avoid the problem. That can’t be everyone’s solution, though.

I wear them with great difficulty. And since the mask further reduces very poor speech comprehension numbers, a lot of times I wear my aids in my pocket

Are these N95? Doesn’t look like it

I switched to wearing what is called a neck gaiter. The loops on the mask kept getting tangled with the HAs. Between having to wear glasses, HAs and a mask, too much junk behind my ears. The neck gaiter has solved this problem for me. I purchased many gaiters on Amazon

I wear N95s with the straps going behind the head, not the ears. Taken on and off properly, my aids rarely pop out. When I just grab a ear loop surgical type mask they always catch. I think any masks without ear loops are a better idea.
