New to this as most people are that are posting. I am on a trial of Oticon Intiga hearing aids that use a RIC tube. I am having a problem where the hearing aid tube rubs on the front top of my ear. At the end of the day there is a little indent on the front top of my ear that is red. Is it just something you have to get used to or can it be adjusted?
I have tried to play with the position of the tube but it seems to only fit in the one place that it rubs and makes sore after wearing for the day.
Another question is that the part that goes into my ear seems to not go in that far at all. I expected it to go in much farther. I have previously tried a Soundlens CIC aid and it went in MUCH farther than this RIC does.
I don’t have another appt for a couple of weeks, although I can call and try and get moved up. My Audi did measure my ears before ordering.
I tried some searches on here and couldn’t find any posts about this but I am sure it must be a common problem.
BTW I love the sound from the Intiga’s. They sound great it is just a fit issue.
Thanks for any help…
