I’ve been told that the rather large HA receivers (full mold in ears) for Widex Super aids last around 18 months. Was also told receivers could last longer depending on usage, climate in area and general care. When I asked if receivers would just stop working when their day was up I was told no. The receivers would just not work as well as they used to and start to deteriorate over a period of time.
Having a severe to profound hearing loss I’m rather perplexed how I will be able to tell if my HA are working property as my receivers slowly fade into the sunset. I’d rather have them completely fail and get replaced then have them slowly go down hill and take the remaining hearing to a lower level.
Anyone here wear or use ear receivers that are the larger type and if so how long have they operated for you at peak level? Also did you notice immediately when receivers became defective or lowered you HA level or did you keep using HA receivers far beyond the point of normal replacement?
Always nice to know I’ve paid big bucks for something to go defective in two years and I won’t even know if its working properly or not until it probably flat out stops.
