What Are Beltone Custom Earmolds?
An earmold is a piece of plastic, acrylic or other soft material shaped to fit your ear exactly. 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. Because earmolds worn in the concha so closely match the ear's natural contours and skin tone, they're also hard to spot.
It's important that your earmolds fit well, match your level of dexterity, look cosmetically appealing, and feel comfortable for an extended period of time. To achieve this custom fit, your hearing care professional takes an impression of your ear and sends it to a specialty lab for creation.
