Thread: Ear Molds for Severe Hearing Loss

    Lightbulb Ear Molds for Severe Hearing Loss

    My hearing loss on the left side has degraded to 80-90 dB at high frequencies. Can I use vented earmolds when increasing to the gain I now need?

    I've always used vented ear molds, but the small style I use produce feedback from the vent and around the "shell" of the mold as well.

    What's the best type of ear mold for a severe/profound high frequency loss?

    Default

    I am not an expert , but as a hearing aid wearer with severe/profound loss I can say that vented earmolds are not severe and profound loss . I think best earmolds for us would be of soft material and with full shell type .I read that hard earmolds would produce more feedback than soft ones .

    Default Vented Molds

    Vented molds can still be used with soft silicone or vinyl full shell earmolds with very good digital BTE's with feedback cancellation, particularly with Phonak Savia, Savia ART, etc.
