Some people love to be in the water because they believe beach is their second home and there are a few who frequently take dips in their pool whether it is morning, noon or midnight. There are people who are professional swimmers believe that they are partly fish. Today the environment is a bit louder than usual that’s when you realize that you hearing gear is still on you when you took the dip. Are you sure your small electronic device can survive the dip?
Yes, you should be slightly worried because hearing aids best work and perform in rough and dry condition. Hearing aids are often made with some amount of water resistance attached to it but there is a big difference between water resistance and wholly water proof.
Does water resistance devices worthwhile?
The electronic ear dopes inside your hearing aid case aren’t going to get well with water. Generally, you’ll want to remove your hearing aids before you go to take a dip or hop in the shower or, depending on the IP rating, sit outside in excessively humid weather. But it will not help you incase when you drop your hearing aid in depths of even the shallow pool, but there are some instances in which a high IP rating will absolutely be to your advantage:
- If your daily routine is much closer to water, wet and rainy conditions.
- If you are an athletic who sweats too much and indulge in marathon of gym sets.
- If you are an aquatic adventurer who goes on boating or fishing and a prolific swimmer, you need a high IP rated device.
- You have a habit of forgetting to take your hearing aids out before you take shower or walk out into the rain.
This list is just the drop in the ocean. It’ll be up to self and your hearing specialist to take a look at your daily routine and determine just what amount of water resistance is strong enough for your daily life.
What should you do if your devices get wet?
You should definitely be panic if your hearing aid gets dipped in pool because there is just a low amount of resistance with the water. And panicking doesn’t do you any good. You have to give your device time to dry and check whether they are working perfectly. If they don’t visit your hearing aid specialist and check with him no matter it has high or low IP rating.
The damage your device suffered can be judged by the IP rating which is on your hearing aids. So before you go for a long evening dip, be cautious and take off hearing aids because the more drier your device is the more better it works.
