INSTRUCTIONS: 24 EARMOLDS, 1 or 2 EAR HCPB Tubes, DIY KIT
Kit supplies enough material to make 24 custom canal ear molds for average size ears.
Clean your ear, as normal, wash hands for sanitation and to remove skin oils and hand lotion. Insert an EB Tubing/ ear tip all the way in the ear canal for measurement. Place hearing aid on the ear. Cut the long tube allowing 3/16” to overlap the hearing aid plastic hook. Remove them from the ear and connect/ push the tube onto the hearing aid hook. Check the EB Tube/ tip for any ear wax and clean it with alcohol on a tissue.
Measure 1/8 tsp (clean teaspoon) of White Silicone Rubber (Medical Grade) Silicone Putty, taken from dispenser. Measure a 1/8 tsp equal portion of the colored Silicone putty, with a CLEAN teaspoon, to prevent activation (cross-contamination) and place it on a dish next to the white Silicone. Turn hearing aid on.
Mix one white + one colored Silicone portions with fingers, until they are one color, approx. 15- 20 seconds (don't mix longer than 30 seconds as it begins to cure in 60 seconds, when combined)
Apply the mixture to the EAR BUDDIES Tube ( 8 to 10 seconds maximum), starting at the inside of the soft rubber tip on the tubing and wrap it all around the tube past the Centering Ring.
Insert the tubing with the Silicone mixture into the ear canal, all the way, until the vertical tubing touches the face. Wiggle the tube to ease insertion. Then press the mixture around the tubing to fill the canal and prevent any empty spaces (no longer than 15 seconds).
Continue to press the vertical tubing against your face (in front of your ear) for 5-8 minutes, while the Silicone Rubber is being permanently set into your new ear-mold. Open and close your mouth, during this time, as if you are talking or chewing, so the mold will be comfortable after it cures, when you talk and chew later.
If you have a Severe Hearing Loss, it is important that you firmly press the mixture around the tubing to completely fill the canal and prevent any empty spaces and possible feed-back.
For a Mild/Moderate, Sloping High-Frequency Loss, you don't need to press the silicone so firmly in the ear, a looser fit will allow leakage (venting) of sound and you will get a more natural, not hollow sound.
Wait at least 30 minutes before removing your new ear-mold. Observe any irregularities or voids that might cause a problem to retain the mold onto the tubing and in the ear.
Modify the silicone rubber with scissors or a fingernail file to remove excessive material. You can also use the file to provide or increase a vent action, if your voice sounds hollow, by gradually filing along the bottom edge of the mold. If your hearing aid tends to feed-back, be cautious about filing excessively. Tutorial
