Earmolds for Hearing Aids?
Hearing aid Earmolds (Ear Molds) can improve the listening experience of almost all hearing aid users, BTE (Behind Ear), OE (Over the Ear), RIC (Receiver In Ear), OPEN FIT and IN The Ear aids.
They can also be helpful for cell phones, MP 3 players, motorcycle, off-road vehicles, aircraft insert headphones, etc.
A good Custom Earmold will greatly enhance your listening experience. In order to have a custom earmold made, yoou need to have impressions of your ear taken and mailed to an earmold lab. Or, you can make your own within 10 minutes, using HCPB DIY silicone rubber kits.
Making impressions of your ears is a very simple and usually safe process. Tens of thousands of customers have done this over the past 60 years.
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 3) help reduce the occlusion effect. when a person’s ears feel ‘stuffy.’ People describe occlusion as if they are talking in a barrel. It’s the same effect you have when you talk if your ears are all plugged up. The occlusion effect is reduced by having the custom earmold vented, or with a loose fitting. A ‘breathing hole’ or ‘channel’ is usually drilled through the canal portion. filter, or simply to slightly remove a small portion of the material all along 1 side or the bottom, from front to back.
New Custom Laboratory Earmolds are made to attach to the speaker (receiver) of the device. Plastic tubing is installed in it (for Behind-The-Ear aids). The plastic tubing is what attaches to the aid by slipping it over the earhook of the BTE hearing aid. The Curved Tubing is specially molded for hearing aid and Custom Earmold use. If you try to use straight tubing, it will crimp as it makes its right angle into the Custom Earmold and will prevent sound from passing through.
