    Default Some questions about HAs

    Hello all,

    I have a pair of Phonak Nadia HAs which I have been wearing for 4 years now. My questions are these:
    1) what is the life expectancy of HAs?
    2) how well do the fabric sweat bands work to keep moisture out of the battery compartment?
    3) Is there anything else that will work to keep the battery compartment dry?

    thanks in advance for your replies.

    1) I think 5 years give or take. That is all relative though. They may last many years longer and even if they need repairs, that can be done more cost-effectively than buying new aids. The replacement of aids has to do a lot with any more recent technology that you want to try and could benefit from.
    2) I've never used these, so I can't say, but you can run a search here and find what others' experience is.
    3) I use a dryer every night and open the battery doors. This seems to work very well with keeping the aids completely dry day in and day out.
