Title:What Hearing Aid Dome to Use? What About Custom Ear Molds?

Purchasing a pair of hearing aids is only one of many factors that must be considered in order to hear one’s best in spite of hearing loss. Other factors that need to be addressed after hearing aid purchase include programming and physically fitting the hearing aid to the ear canal. In this video, we will focus on hearing aid fitting or how the hearing aid is coupled to the ear canal. Although there are many different types of hearing aids, we will focus specifically on Receiver in the Canal (RITE) style which is by far the most popular and widely used style of hearing aids. Its ability to fit different ear sizes and shapes is due to the swappable rubber domes which is what is inserted into the ear canal. Custom ear molds can even be used instead of the rubber domes with this hearing aid style. This video will explain what type of hearing aid dome and/or custom ear mold is most appropriate for a given type of hearing loss, whether flat hearing loss, steeply sloping high-frequency hearing loss, or normal low frequency with hearing loss in the mid and high frequencies.
