Wax Filter for Oticon Hearing Aids
At Japebo you will find wax filters for several models of Oticon hearing aids. Oticon is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of hearing aids and related accessories. Since 1904, Oticon has always been at the forefront of technological advancements in advanced audiology, making them highly popular among many hearing aid users.
Earwax is one of the major issues affecting hearing aids, as it can enter the hearing aid and reduce the volume and quality of sound. This is where the wax filter comes in as an ideal solution. Your ear canal will always produce earwax, and the wax filter will prevent it from affecting the sound in your hearing aid. Most hearing aids come with a filter or similar mechanism, but over time, these can get clogged, especially if not properly maintained. In our range, you will find wax filters for both ITE (In-The-Ear) and BTE (Behind-The-Ear) hearing aids.
We sell the following Oticon filters for hearing aids:
- Oticon Prowax
- Oticon Prowax Minifit
- Oticon Waxstop
- Nowax Filter
What to do with a blocked wax filter?
If you have a blocked wax filter, the only solution is to replace it. If you haven’t learned how to do it yourself, you can ask your hearing care professional to provide you with instructions so you can do it on your own. Together with Oticon, we always recommend daily maintenance of your hearing aids and the use of dedicated tools according to the specific model’s instructions to prevent blockages.
If you are unsure, wait until you can get the proper assistance from a specialist to avoid accidentally damaging or completely destroying your hearing aid.
How to replace a wax filter
The process of replacing a wax filter may vary between Oticon models, so we always recommend reading the user manual to be sure. However, the general steps for replacing a filter are as follows:
- Remove the tool from its case. The tool should have two holders, one with the new filter and one for removing the old one.
- Press the holder that removes the wax filter into the existing filter and remove it from the hearing aid.
- Press the new filter into the hearing aid.
- Dispose of the used tool, and you have successfully replaced the wax filter.
