Summer Hearing Tips For Your Holiday Adventures

Summer is here, and it’s the perfect time to embark on exciting adventures and create lasting memories. Whether you’re planning a beach getaway, exploring new destinations, or simply enjoying the great outdoors, taking care of your hearing health should be a priority.

Here are some valuable tips from our audiologists to ensure you can fully enjoy every sound of summer while keeping your hearing in top shape.

Protect Your Ears from Loud Noises:

1. Summer often comes with loud concerts, fireworks, and other noisy events. Protect your ears by wearing earplugs or earmuffs during these occasions. This simple precaution can help prevent noise-induced hearing damage and ensure you can continue to appreciate the beautiful sounds of summer.

Keep Water Out of Your Ears:

2. If swimming or participating in water activities is part of your summer plans, make sure to protect your ears from water. Excessive moisture in the ear can lead to swimmer’s ear and other ear infections. Use custom-fit swim moulds or earplugs designed for water activities to keep your ears dry and free from infection. If you have a Phonak Lyric device (the World’s first “invisible hearing aid”!) then you won’t need to remove it, but just make sure that you don’t swim with your head under water.

Be Mindful of Earwax Buildup:

3. During the summer, excessive heat and humidity can contribute to increased earwax production. It’s important to keep your ears clean, but avoid using cotton buds, as they can push wax deeper into the ear canal. Instead, consult with one of our Wax Removal Specialists who can safely and effectively remove earwax.

Consider Hearing Aid Accessories:

4. If you wear hearing aids, certain accessories can enhance your summer experience. Did you know, there are such devices as “waterproof hearing aids”? Phonak Life are waterproof (up to half a metre) rechargeable hearing aids designed for active individuals suitable for swimming and active holidays.

Additionally, there are accessories such as streaming devices that allow you to connect your hearing aids to smartphones or audio devices, ensuring you don’t miss out on any important sounds during your summer adventures. So lie back and enjoy listening to an audiobook as you relax by the pool.

Schedule a Hearing Check-up:

5. Before heading out on your summer holiday, consider scheduling a hearing check-up with one of our audiology team. They can assess your hearing health, make any necessary adjustments to your hearing aids, and provide personalised recommendations for enjoying the summer season to the fullest.

So this summer, make the most of your holiday adventures by prioritising your hearing health. By following these simple tips, you can look after your hearing, enjoy the sounds of nature, conversations with loved ones, and all the delightful experiences summer has to offer. A little care goes a long way in preserving your hearing and ensuring a memorable and enjoyable summer season.
