Cerustop Hearing Aid Wax Guards
$6.95 – $38.95
Cerustop wax guards have been designed to be used with Unitron and Phonak hearing instruments. These Cerustop Wax Guards help keep your hearing aids sounding great by preventing wax from affecting your hearing aid receiver.
Wax can quickly block the sound quality of your hearing aid, and the higher the wax buildup, the less you’ll be able to hear. Both ITE and RIC hearing aids are particularly prone to this issue simply because they are placed so deeply within the ear canal. If the sound from your hearing aid is starting to feel muffled or not as clear, or even if you have lost sound completely, the most common reason is due to wax. A hearing aid wax guard protects your ITE and RIC hearing aids, preventing wax buildup.
Using a hearing aid filter like Cerustop Wax Guards is a proven way to protect your hearing aids and ensure they always operate at maximum efficiency.
This hearing aid filter product is priced from one pack to 10 packs for greater savings. Each pack contains eight filters.
Remember that being proactive with your hearing aid maintenance is critical. Your audiologist or doctor will most likely have given you plenty of information about caring for your hearing aids, but many overlook the risks of ear wax. Hearing aid wax guards are one of the most effective hearing aid accessories available, and once you start using them, you’ll be surprised that you haven’t been using them for years.
Cerustop Wax Guards are compatible with:
- Also, with Unitron cShell earmolds
- Reference Number: 098-0282
- Prices include sales tax where applicable
Cerustop Wax Guards are a push-on and disposable hearing aid wax guard that prevents wax buildup from entering your hearing aid or hearing aids. One of the main reasons for hearing aid malfunction is ear wax. For those who wear their hearing aids every day, that daily buildup of wax will gradually move into your hearing aid’s sound outlet. First, the sound quality will reduce, and eventually, there may be a complete sound blockage.
Other hearing aid filter products are available, so it’s important to check with your specialist to determine which hearing aid wax guard is most suitable for your hearing aids.
What You Need to Know About Hearing Aid Wax Guards
Hearing aids can be a life-changer when you start to experience hearing loss. Of course, like any technology, your hearing aids need to be looked after if they are to continue working at maximum efficiency.
One of the most common problems for hearing aid wearers is ear wax. Ear wax can clog hearing aids very effectively, and if you don’t look after your hearing aids, then that damage may even become permanent. A hearing aid filter that’s been designed to protect hearing aids from wax damage ensures that your hearing aid will always be performing at full effectiveness.
So if your hearing has started to sound muffled or it’s simply not working as well as it used to, it may just be that the Cerustop wax guard is plugged with earwax (also known as cerumen). These eight-pack wax filters will make quick work of removing your old hearing aid filter and inserting a new one to help you get back up and running.
Even though hearing aids are more cutting edge than ever, the fact is that they are still very small high-tech devices that can all too easily suffer from damage. To look after them, a hearing aid wax guard fits directly onto the hearing aid, acting as a filter so that your hearing aid doesn’t become clogged with wax.
Wax and Hearing Aids: An Unpleasant Combination
Ear wax is extremely sticky and has a habit of getting where it shouldn’t be. If that sticky buildup gets into your hearing aid, it will attach immediately to any of the important functional components. The microphone will not be able to pick up sounds as well, the receiver will not work at 100%, and the amplifier may malfunction completely.
Without a hearing aid wax guard, a hearing aid may need to be taken to your audiologist to repair or clean. In some cases, you may even have to send your hearing aids to the manufacturer, especially if the damage caused by the wax is particularly severe.
A hearing aid wax guard is a way to prevent that from being necessary. It works by trapping ear wax (and other debris) from entering the hearing aid. The design then makes it easier to remove that debris and wax from your hearing aid without having to worry about damaging your device.
Easy to use as part of your daily routine, Cerustop Wax Guards can help you to make your hearing aids last longer and more efficiently. That means you don’t have to keep on spending money unnecessarily on potentially costly repairs.

Cerustop Wax Guards FAQs
What is a hearing aid wax guard?
A hearing aid wax guard rests inside the sound outlet of your hearing aid. It’s a small plastic screen that filters between the sound outlet and the outside world. That means it prevents outdoor debris, moisture, and internal wax buildup from damaging your hearing aid device. Completely-in-Canal hearing aids and Invisible-in-Canal devices are particularly prone to blockages caused by earwax. Cerustop Wax Guards provide essential protection against those causes of blockage.
Are all hearing aid wax guards the same size?
There are hundreds of different manufacturers of hearing aids and hearing aid accessories. They are all slightly different, which means that your hearing aid wax guards need to be suitable for use to be effective. Hearing aid wax guards come in a range of different sizes, so check your manufacturer’s guide. Cerustop Wax Guards are compatible with Unitron, Phonak, Hansaton, and Unitron cShell earmolds.
How often do I need to change my hearing aid wax guard?
Everyone is different, and we all produce different amounts of ear wax. Some people may have to change filters every few days, while others may not even have to think about changing their hearing aid filter for a month.
Make sure that you check your hearing aid wax guard regularly, and if you can see visible wax buildup then that’s an indication it’s time to fit new Cerustop Wax Guards. Even if you can’t see any wax buildup, but you have noticed the beginnings of sound distortion, that’s a good indicator that your wax guard needs to be changed.
Even if you are experiencing no reduction in sound quality, replace your Cerustop Wax Guards at least once a month.
Why does my hearing aid sound muffled and distorted?
Your ears are constantly exposed to different kinds of moisture, dirt, and debris. These can all cause damage to your hearing aids, and wax is the worst of them all. This sticky matter is hazardous for hearing aids and may cause irreparable damage. That’s where a hearing aid wax guard comes in, protecting your hearing aids and the quality of your sound.
Why does my hearing aid need protection against wax?
Everybody produces earwax. It’s an entirely natural process, and that earwax does a vital job by keeping our ears safe from dirt, debris, and dust. So while that earwax has its uses, it can also be highly damaging to hearing aids, especially those that sit deep within the ear canal.
Ear wax and other debris will affect the quality and the lifespan of your hearing aids. Using a hearing aid wax guard to protect your hearing devices is a cost-effective way to keep your hearing aids safe. Fail to use a hearing aid wax guard, and you could end up with extensive repair or cleaning bills.
Are hearing aid wax guards the only protection against earwax?
While hearing aid wax guards are the most effective way to keep your hearing aids operating at maximum efficiency, there are other things that you can do to help both your devices and your wax guards.
Use a hearing aid cleaning kit every night before you go to sleep. Use the dry wipes in the kit to wipe any wax or dirt buildup that’s collected on the outside of your hearing aid. Use the thin wire hooks to get into and clear the sound outlets/microphone. Don’t forget that if you can’t clean your hearing aids yourself, your audiologist can do this on your behalf.
