To the great surprise of my audiologist and myself, the silicon inserts for the Savia Arts (or probably any open fit HAs) causes me quite a bit of discomfort and pain. The pain happens when I put them on, or have them in all the way. Once in, they are cause some pain and itching. I have been wearing them for about 1 week now with no real improvement on how they feel.
I am going to be trying out a custom ear mold to see if that helps this problem. If not i may have to just go the CIC route again :p.
I was told that most people who go from a CIC to the open fit find the new HAs to be much more comfortable. Has anyone else had an adverse reaction to the open fit ear inserts?
