Brief Answer:
Does not affect your health

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thanks for your query.

If MRI scan was taken while you had a hearing air in your ears, the magnetic resonance could have spoiled the hearing aid or the scans could have been spoiled due the metal components in the aid.

This may not affect you health.

Wish you good health.
