Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak: How you can get help.

Getting used to hearing aids


Overview

Most face-to-face audiology services have stopped during the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. We’ve put together a guide on what to do if you’re waiting for hearing aids to be fitted during the coronavirus outbreak.


It might take around a couple of months to get used to your new hearing aids, but don’t worry if it takes longer than this. The more often you wear your hearing aids, the faster you’ll get used to them.

When you first get hearing aids, it will take some time to get used to:

  • the feeling of them in your ears
  • using different settings
  • cleaning and maintaining them
  • adjusting to all the new sounds you can hear.
