If you find yourself nodding along to a conversation you can only half hear, the reason might be a buildup of earwax. Earwax impaction is one of the most common causes of hearing loss. If you want an at-home method that can help prevent earwax buildup from getting out of hand, then you need a tool that lets you clean it yourself.
The Smart Visual Ear Cleaner is part camera, part wax scoop tool, and it’s on sale for $34.95 (regularly $39) for a limited time.
An easier way and safer way to peek inside your ears
You don’t have to blindly explore the recesses of your ear canal the old-fashioned way with cotton swabs. Instead, try getting a better look with this ear cleaner, which offers a 360-degree, wide-angle view to capture your earwax in HD. The camera streams directly to iOS devices using the Yiduo Visual app.
While exploring your ear canal, you might find some unwelcome wax deposits. This earwax-busting kit doesn’t stop at letting you see the problem. It comes with six ear spoons so you can scoop out stubborn wax before it can build up and cause a blockage.
The ear spoons are made of gentle silicone to keep your ear safe as you clean. The inside of your ear is delicate, but the scoops are soft. And with the camera’s clear visuals, you can see exactly what you’re doing.
The Smart Visual Ear Cleaner may work great for your ears, but that’s not all it’s useful for. You can use your cleaner to check your nose, throat, scalp, teeth and other body parts, too. Verified customer Calvin D. found it helpful for dealing with a nasal problem.
“I’ve been having some nosebleed issues (related to prescribed blood thinners),” he wrote. “[W]hen I’ve seen ENT doc, no visual evidence of bleeding at exam. I’ve been able to take photos and video of problem areas at home after it occurs.”
Save on the Smart Visual Ear Cleaner
Skip the cotton swabs and go high-tech with your ear cleanings. (Bonus: Keep your ear holes spick and span, and your AirPods won’t get gunked up with gross earwax, either.)
