HEARING AIDS EAR-MOLDS

An earmold is a piece of plastic, acrylic or other soft material shaped to fit a patient’s ear canal, and/or the outer ear structure (Concha) surrounding the ear canal.

Earmold styles vary according to level of hearing loss, and the style of hearing aid with which they’re paired. In many cases, earmolds sit inside the ear canal, hidden from view. Other times, earmolds sit in the concha bowl as well as in the ear canal.
