I got my hearing aids (RITE from America Hears) just over two months ago. About three weeks ago, I spent a weekend with sounds of static in my right aid. It stopped after two days and was OK until earlier this week when it started again. I took them in and they replaced the receiver. They were fine for about two hours and started crackling again. I took them in again and got a call today that they are ready to be picked up.
The message said that they cleaned them and replaced the microphone and that it was “pretty significant”.
I’m wondering why they needed to be cleaned and the microphone needed to be replaced so quickly. Is it possible that there is something I did (or didn’t do). I clean the sound tip and wipe the outside of the ha every night and put them in the dryer. That’s all I was instructed to do when I got them.
I won’t be able to pick it up until Monday but wondered why it might have fitzed out after just two months of wear.
