Hello. This is my first post, about my first pair of behind-the-ear hearing aids. I have previously used in-the-ear aids and am happy to have the open fit aids for both comfort and the more natural sound.
My question is that when I put the receiver device in my ear canal, the hearing aid bodies don’t lie against the back of my ears (pinnas) but are sort of “elevated.” Over the course of the day the receivers pull out a but creating a bit of a feedback situation.
If the aids lie back more against the ear, the thin plastic tub runs across the front part of my ears and doesn’t follow the natural curve of the ear.
Are the hearing aid bodies of BTE aids supposed to lie against the ear? I like and trust my audiologist, but this fit doesn’t feel quite right. Should the aids (or the tube) be changed, or is this sort of fit acceptable?
Thanks for your help.
