It's important to change your hearing aid tubing every three to six months to prevent condensation, wax and any other debris building up. Replacing hearing aid tubes on a regular basis helps to avoid damage or blockages that can reduce the sound quality from your hearing aid. Hardened hearing aid tubes can also split, resulting in a high-pitched whistling sound which you may not notice, but it might disturb the people around you.
Our libby horn tubing fits over-ear hearing aids, and is available straight or pre-bent in a variety of sizes. Some of our hearing aid tubing has a moisture-free coating. This helps to prevent the build-up of moisture in the tube which extends the life of the tubes and improves the good functioning of your hearing aid, resulting in less visits to the audiologist for repairs. Please see below for the full range of straight and pre-bent hearing aid tubes available.
Each type of hearing aid tube has different acoustic properties and your hearing aid will have been designed to work with a particular type of tubing. Please check with your audiologist which type of tube you need before placing an order because our 28-day money back guarantee does not apply to hearing aid tubing for hygiene reasons.
We often get asked how to change hearing aid tubes . The tools we have available in our hearing aid maintenance range make cutting and changing hearing aid tubes much easier. One popular gadget is a hearing aid tubing extractor – a small handheld drill that fits into the tubing in your hearing aid to help remove it. Other useful tools are precision cutters, for trimming hearing aid tubes, and bent nose pliers, for removing old tubing, cutting the new tubing to size and fitting the replacement tubing.
