Reading a few posts makes me realize how little I know about hearing aids. I’m 61 with mild sensori-neuro hearing loss across all frequecies in both ears. I wanted hearing aids because I had trouble hearing my grandson, d-i-l, and other low talkers and misunderstood the occasional consonant.
I chose the Widex Passion 440 and like them very much except for the fact that my ear canals kept pushing out the little dome receivers. My audiologist attached a little extra plastic tubing that I curl up a bit upon insertion, with the expectation that the curl will help anchor the receiver. This works pretty well, but not perfectly.
Next, the audiologist did a mold of my canals for the creation of custom receiver domes or buds or something. Unfortunately, the company reports that my canals are too narrow and have too sharp a bend for a custom receiver.
Have any of you experienced users heard of situations like this? Is there a solution? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
