Outdoor concerts are a great way to celebrate summer, but they can be a great way to get hearing loss as well. Pack a few earplugs the next time you head to a summer music festival or concert.

Summer is a time for sun – and sweat. Luckily, your hearing aids are designed to handle sweat and daily moisture. To keep them in top shape, consider getting an electronic drying station.

It is important to protect yourself from the sun this summer. Be careful with your hearing aids when applying sunscreen to your ears, though. While hearing aids are designed to be protected from most elements, it can still be a sticky situation if you get too much sunscreen on them.

Most hearing aids are designed to be water resistant but they aren’t entirely waterproof. You can have them on in the rain or on a sailing trip – but take them off when you swim.
