Ear Moulds

Digital Hearing Aids are evolved to make a better life expectancy. They use digital Signal Processor which reads the sounds waves to amplify the sounds and transmit the sound to the ear for better understanding of the speech or the sound. Digital hearing Aids adjust the sounds and personalize it according to the Hearing Loss condition. Digital Hearing Aids use microchip technology to customise the sound amplification and are smart enough to interact with other devices with Bluetooth Technology.

Why Ear Moulds are required?

People with a higher degree of hearing loss will have trouble in listening to the lower frequencies. Ear moulds will help in delivering the better sound by providing the correct fit to the Ear. The Snug fit transmits the amplified sound directly to the ears without any loops and sound leakages. Customization of the Ear Moulds is quite painless and quick.

Styles of Ear Moulds

    • Skeleton earmold: A skeleton earmold is a full shell, with a small hole cut out in the concha portion that makes a ring around the bowl of the ear.

    • Open Skeleton :Mould is in Open skeleton model with the bottom of the ear canal portion removed, so only the sound bore resides in the ear canal. This type of mould is used for a hearing loss with good low-frequency hearing, or for a CROS or BICROS fitting.

    • Semi-skeleton lock mould and helix lock: A helix lock ear mould doesn’t have much of a concha bowl but it has the helix intact. Semi-skeleton earmold is also referred to as a semi-skeleton lock mould

    • Half shell: The half-shell ear mould is cut horizontally across the concha and filling up the lower aspect of the concha bowl. This ear mould takes up only a quarter of the concha.

    • Canal: The canal mould fills up the ear canal and vented the tube in the same way as a full shell. It is the smallest, comfortable and cosmetically appealing. This is suitable for mild to moderate losses and for patients with a deformed pinna.

    • Canal-Lock: A canal lock is simply a canal version earmold with a concha lock that sits in the posterior part of the concha bowl. It is designed to be small and inconspicuous like the canal style with superior retention.

    • Open Skeleton : Mould is in Open skeleton model with the bottom of the ear canal portion removed, so only the sound bore resides in the ear canal. This type of mould is used for a hearing loss with good low-frequency hearing, or for a CROS or BICROS fitting.

    • Slim tube canal-lock earmold: The slim tube canal-lock mould has a small foot around the concha bowl. Even for the size of this small mould, this offers quite a bit of retention coupled with comfort in the canal.

    • Half-shell earmold for a slim tube: A slim tube’s vent is large. They are simply due to the inherent acoustic nature of a full-shell mould and can accommodate a full shell with a large vent.

    • Receiver-in-the-Canal (RIC) Earpieces: RIC Ear Moulds are similar to a slim-tube which fits into the ear canal. If you are looking for a RIC or BTE hearing Aids then do not forget to ask for your customised Ear Moulds which can help you to hear well and stay comfortable.
