Custom earmolds are molds shaped to fit a patient’s ear canal and/or outer ear structure. Earmolds are anatomically shaped and can be produced in different sizes for general use or specially cast from particular ear forms.
Some users specify how hard or soft they want their mould to be, an audiologist can also suggest this. They come in plastic, acrylic or another soft material.
Why Use Custom Earmolds?
Earmolds are great for hearing devices such as hearing aids or musician’s ear monitors. They can also be used without a hearing device to protect the ear during activities such as swimming, racing or hunting.
If you or someone you care for is interested in custom earmolds for hearing aids or hearing protection, please contact The Hearing Place at (605) 217-4327 to schedule an appointment.
