Hearing aids on a plane
Using hearing aids on an airplane can be challenging for some people. The loud engine noise and the pressure difference in the cabin can be challenging. However, there are some tips and tricks that can help ensure proper use of hearing aids on planes.
First, hearing aid users should make sure their hearing aid is fully charged before boarding the plane. It's also wise to carry a charger or spare batteries in case the hearing aid gives up the ghost during the flight.
During the flight, hearing aid users should make sure their hearing aid fits well and that the volume control is set at an appropriate volume. If possible, hearing aid users should also try to get a seat near the airplane cabin, as the noise level is usually lower in that area.
It is also important to note that hearing aids are put into flight mode during flight when the "Fasten your seatbelt" beep sounds. However, you do not have to remove or turn off your hearing aids. Only if you wear hearing aids that emit radio signals do you need to put them in flight mode - just as smartphones do.
Overall, there are some factors that can affect the use of hearing aids on an airplane, but with a little preparation and the right settings, hearing aid users can enjoy a good listening experience even during flight.
