I’m getting my first pair of custom molds tomorrow. I have mild-to-moderate loss, as you can see from my curve. Really the bigger issue for me is that the open fit BTE’s, even with large-size domes, keep slipping and falling off my ear. So far, it’s only happened at home, no harm, no foul, but it’s just a matter of time before I lose a $2,000 aid for good in the wild.
I have no idea how it’s going to change the sound or the comfort for me (I’ll let you know when I’ve made up my mind), but it’s only costing me $85 per ear to find out. OK, not exactly peanuts, but in the context of new high-end aids, pretty much and worth the risk IMO.
