Custom Earmolds and Micromolds

We offer a wide variety of custom fit ear pieces to work with Behind the Ear (BTE) and Receiver in Canal (RIC) hearing aids. These earmolds and micromolds come in a variety of materials and colors to fit your individual needs. We even offer hypoallergenic options for those with skin sensitivity.

All custom made hearing aids, earmolds, micromolds, swimplugs and earplugs are made from a “cast” of the ear. The cast is referred to as an ear impression. The audiologist makes the ear impression in the office. It takes about 10 to 15 minutes. The audiologist places a special cotton or foam dam in the ear canal to protect the eardrum, and then a waxy material is placed in the ear canal. When the material hardens (about 5 to 10 minutes later) the wax cast, along with the dam are removed from the ear canal.
