After four sets of ear molds from two different manufacturers (Phonak and Westone) I am beginning to think that I am just not able to wear molds.
I have yet to get a comfortable pair, usually my left ear the molds are painful, the one that wasn’t would not stay in.
My audiologist said that I have ‘deceptively small’ ear canals. Because of how small they are acrylic molds would not work so we have working in trying to get a working set of silicon molds.
At this point I am thinking I may just have to give up and go back to domes even though it will mean not being able to meet my full prescriptive gain.
Anyone else have similar issues?
