Ear Gear, which has sold well over 100,000 units in the last 6 years to hearing impaired individuals worldwide, is a well known product for children and adults. It is designed to prevent hearing aids, FM’s Cochlear Processors, and Baha’s, from getting lost and to protect them from dirt, sweat, rain, and chafing.
Keeping Hearing Instruments Secure and Protected
Children hearing aids are a little smaller than adult models but most children still find them difficult to wear, especially in the case of infants, toddlers, and children with developmental delays. Children are notorious for taking their hearing instruments off, especially when they get their first pair. There is an adjustment period, during which children become accustomed to a new “audio” environment. Ear Gear encases their hearing aid. If your children hearing instruments fall off, or if they take them off, Ear Gear with cord and clip ensures that your children hearing instruments are securely attached to their clothing and are easy to find. Ear Gear without cord or clip will protect them from the elements. Hearing aids can cause chaffing. Ear Gear is made from a soft spandex material that makes hearing instruments more comfortable to wear.
Traditionally, hearing instruments were a flesh tone, and designed to be as unobtrusive as possible; however, today, hearing instruments, like glasses, are becoming a fashion accessory. Hearing instruments come in a selection of colored outer cases, and you can attach brightly colored ear molds. Ear Gear comes in a range of stylish patterns and colors that allow self-expression.
Hearing instruments with an FM attachment are not designed for active lifestyles. Most children only wear their FM unit in the classroom. Many parents remove their children hearing instruments when they are involved in active play such as running, jumping, hiking or a favorite sport like soccer, baseball or hockey. Ear Gear keeps hearing instruments in place and protects them from sweat, rain, and dirt. All Ear Gear models are water resistant and allow children to participate more easily in all these activities.
