I am near the end of my trial with the Rexton Trax 42 hearing aids. There has been some improvement from my previous HA’s but not as much as I might have hoped. I have occlusion in my left ear in particular and wonder if I get molds for comfort, would they also improve my hearing.
I talked to my fitter about this and asked about the vented molds. She seemed to be against this saying that due to the hearing loss in the left ear I would get too much leakage/feedback. As it is now, I often reposition the left (double domed) as it seems to completely seal my ear canal and I find the sound distorted and uncomfortable. With my previous HA’s I often didn’t wear the left HA at all.
If the molds are not vented, can they still help with occlusion?
