Thread: Mute HA versus Turning Off

  1. Default Mute HA versus Turning Off

    My HA instructions say in order to turn off the HA you must open the battery door until the battery no longer touches the battery contacts. My HA has a mute feature so I'm wondering if muting does the same thing as breaking the battery contact. That is, by muting the HA it no longer receives signals for sound thereby not draining the battery.

    Comments would be greatly appreciated.

    Muting is a temp function that continues to burn battery

    Thanks for the reply.

    The mute function is good to whenever you need to take them off for a short spell. Drain is very minimal while in standby mode and probably not much more than the drain when they are out, because they are zinc air.

    You must never have found yourself waiting at a cross walk when the fire department drives by with blazing sirens!

    The last thing I want to do is constantly be turning my hearing aids on and off (or muting them) every time I get into a temporarily noisy situation. Mine self adjust just fine for my purposes. 95% of the time I don't touch them after putting them on in the morning. And for the record I spent 12 years as a Field Tech in NYC so am quite familiar with noisy cities.

    I am not single. I'm married (with no kids) but I can tune out surrounding sounds quite well without muting my hearing aids. I did it for almost 58 years before I got my hearing aids and I can continue doing it.
