The external auditory canal of the person is an open tube with one end closed, but the ear canal is blocked by the ear canal hearing aid, and the air mobility is greatly weakened. Thus, the sealing time is easy to form a "wet box", and the external ear canal skin moisture of some users. The amount of evaporation is large, and the humidity is greater after the hearing aid is used to close the external auditory canal, so the ear canal is particularly prone to moisture. Some users who have a history of chronic otitis media are prone to relapse. The moisture in the ear canal is particularly easy to contact and corrode the receiver and chip of the ear canal hearing aid, so maintenance is often required without paying attention to maintenance. A better improvement method is: it is recommended to make a vent hole for the h

Ten benefits of wearing hearing aids in both ears!
1. Improve sound source positioning ability
The human ear has a strong sound source positioning capability. However, its prerequisite is that both ears must have the same hearing threshold. In the process of air transmission, there will be changes in energy and speed. If the hearing loss and the threshold are asymmetrical, the direction of the sound source cannot be determined. Therefore, the binaural option can better improve the positioning ability of the sound source.
2. Improve noise reduction and speech understanding
