I’m in New Mexico. It’s often hot, but not usually humid. Yes, it’s both aids, and yes they turn off. I’ve been wearing Phonak analog aids for 11 years now and I do sweat heavily so I know when not to wear aids. In two of the three instances I have had I was just sitting on the patio in the evening. Yes, it was hot, but I wasn’t doing anything to work up a sweat, just perspiring a little from the heat.
Okay, too much information. The point is, I’ve been wearing aids for years and I know the difference between a little perspiration and heavy sweating. My old aids would not have shut down at this level of perspiration. After the first couple of episodes where I replaced the batteries three times per aid before switching back to the old aids, I learned that if I wipe off the moisture from the battery, I can reinstall it and the aid works again, for a while anyway. Each time it happens there is visible moisture on the aid.
I haven’t tried hearing aid sweat bands, but I do have the latex prophylactics. In both cases the protective device would cover the second microphone which defeats the technology of these high dollar aids.
I rely on my hearing aids and can’t afford to have them missing in action because it’s a hot day, or we had a light rain. There must be something I can do, or some other aid I can try. Thank you.
