6 Ways to SOLVE Hearing Aid problems
- Slipping in or out of ear
- Feedback whistling from ear
- Soreness in ear from Dome/tube
- Hearing aid falling off ear
- Improve sound quality
- Sore inner ear canal from Dome and tube
Earmolds are used with all BTE (Behind The Ear) hearing aids, RIC, CIC, or OPEN FIT—custom-fit earmolds (Ear Molds) are often needed to ensure the best performance, staying in the ear, keeping out noise and giving comfort, especially in noisy situations.
An open tube/tip doesn’t keep the noise out, but an ear mold can. An ear mold is a piece of plastic, acrylic, silicone rubber or other material shaped to fit a patient’s ear canal, and/or the outer ear structure (concha) surrounding the ear canal.
Ear mold styles vary according to level of hearing loss, and the style of hearing aid with which they’re paired. In many cases, ear molds sit inside the ear canal, hidden from view. Other times, lab ear molds sit in the concha bowl as well as in the ear canal.If you require a custom ear mold, your hearing care professional will take an impression of your ear canal and outer ear using a quick-setting plastic or silicone-like substance. The ear impression is sent to a specialty lab where it’s turned into a replica of your ear shape.
A good Custom Ear mold can greatly enhance your listening experience. Custom Ear molds are used with Behind-The-Ear, In- The-Ear hearing aids and Body worn hearing Aids. They are the solution for many common hearing aid problems.
THERE ARE 2 WAYS TO MAKE A CUSTOM EAR MOLD FOR YOUR HEARING AID.
- First is least expensive $2 to $12 ea, DIY (Do It Yourself) https://earmolds.info/earmold-kits
- 2nd, have your hearing aid provider make an impression of your ear and send it to a remote ear mold lab.
- In order to have a custom earmold made by your Dealer/ provider, Specialist or Audiologist, they need to have impressions of your ear. Making impressions of your ears takes about 15 – 20 minutes.
A Custom Earmold will:
1) reduce the possibility of feedback since it forms a better airtight seal in the ear vs. a generic ear piece, earbud, dome/tip, keep it more secure in the ear since it will take advantage of all the contours of your ear to hold it in place and prevent it from slipping in or out of the ear. Eliminate sore ears from a too tight fitting Dome

Before I made my new HCPB earmolds my life was too restricted. I couldn't play tennis, go jogging, or similar activity because my hearing aid slipped, sometimes fell off. If I took them off, then I couldn't hear well. My Audiologist wanted $300 for two molds and she said it would take about 20 days after an ear impressions appointment.
Instead, I discovered your HCPB Do-it-yourself earmolds and for less than $30 for both ears. Your easy kit arrived in 3 days and that same day my problems were solved. The earmolds are comfortable, I hear better in most situations and THEY STAY IN MY EARS WITHOUT SLIPPING OR FALLING OUT.
I am soooo very happy... Marie Foster

My main problem was difficulty understanding my husband and other male voices, including TV and cellphone. I noticed that I could hear much better by putting my finger over my ear where the tube enters. My Audiologist tried different Dome tips, but they were not better and some made my ear sore others were too loose, tickled, itched and slipped out. Her cost was $250 for custom molds.
Then I discovered your HCPB earmold kits. Now I am a happy wife, understanding my husband and he is happy not to keep repeating. My new earmolds are not only comfortable, but they are inconspicuous.

When it came time to replace my Audiologist earmolds, I discovered your website and was pleased with your fast service, low cost (saved $200), more comfortable and my improved hearing.
Thanks very much.
I heard about your products from a long-time customer who was very happy with your service. So I took a chance on his recommendation and am really glad that I did. My Audiologist was unable to satisfy my Open Fit poor hearing in noisy situations. But with my new silicone DIY ear molds, I now hear so much better and I made them myself, quickly at home.
Thank you for a great low-cost product.
My hearing slowly got worse and worse. A friend gave me a pair of his old BTE hearing aids.
His hearing aid ear molds were custom made for his ears, not mine. I tried various domes and stock earmolds, but they would either not stay in my ears, hurt or allow feedback.
I found HCPB selling BTE silicone molds and tubes that Don Rowley invented. What a difference!
They stayed in my ears, stopped slipping out, were comfortable and the audio was much better. How nice to have these problems solved. I even sleep with my hearing aids.
I am locked in to your ear molds for life. Thanks Don.

About the Inventor
Hi, I’m Don Rowley, the inventor of flexible silicone rubber ear molds in 1965. I had worn 2 hearing aids for 10 yrs and was frustrated with the common, hard uncomfortable Lab ear molds that made my ears sore, did not stop feedback and gave less than the best results. I made flexible, comfortable and better hearing silicone ear molds for myself and later for my patients.
About 10 yrs later the earmold labs began making copies, but no one has duplicated all the benefits of my HCPB, DIY Ear molds and my price is the very lowest at $2- $19 each, because I sell bulk directly to you and understand the use and experience of hearing aids better than the sellers of hearing aids that have normal hearing. If you have purchased an ear mold from your hearing aid provider, paid $80 to $200 each and had many problems, you will really appreciate being in control of your own hearing satisfaction, save time and a very large amount of money.
