Ten Summer Activities Made Easier with the Esteem

Posted by Envoy Medical Staff Member on June 1, 2018

Hearing aids can be a big-time pain in the summer and get in the way of enjoying your favorite summer activities. Moisture of any kind generally doesn’t do well with hearing aids, so humidity, sweat, summer rain showers, or having fun around water can spell trouble for your hearing aids. It usually means you either don’t participate, or participate but don’t hear. Below are ten summer activities made infinitely easier with the Esteem!

1. Biking. Comfortably wear a bike helmet and not worry about your hearing aid falling out on the road/trail or malfunctioning from perspiration.

2. Boating and swimming. You don’t have to worry about damaging your Esteem around water. Everything is internal, so nothing can get ruined from water. You can jump in and swim or waterski without even thinking about your Esteem. Or maybe you are watching kids or grandkids and need to be able to hear at all times and don’t want to worry about an external hearing aid falling out or being ruined from water exposure. It’s a delight not to have to worry about your hearing aids with the Esteem. sail boat

Using your Esteem Near Water, While Swimming, and While Showering

Posted by Envoy Medical Staff Member on August 17, 2017

A conventional hearing aid can’t get wet. As models climb in price and add new features, a user still risks destroying a hearing aid when enjoying the lake or showering. If you enjoy swimming, you’re forced with the single option of leaving the hearing aid on your towel, giving up your aided-hearing while swimming, and sacrificing your situational awareness.

Envoy Medical knows how frustrating and nerve-racking this aspect of hearing loss treatment can be, and thanks to the Esteem, our users no longer need to give up hearing around water.

For all Esteem users, the transition from dry to wet environments is seamless. This summer when you’re at the pool teaching your kids to swim, or enjoying a run through the sprinkler during a hot day, don’t worry about remembering to take your hearing aid out or, on the other hand, being able to hear when your hearing aid isn’t in your ear because you don’t want it to get wet.
