I have Sonic Charm Mini BTE with domes. I am having issues with the domes not staying seated in the ear canal. Initially my audi installed locks on them which did help out a lot. He also sent me home with larger domes to try out if the locks didn’t solve the problem. Like I said the locks were working ok. And if I sit quietly watching TV the domes stay put. But eating and talking seem to force them out of my ears a lot. I decided to try the larger domes this week. They seem to help a little more but they too work their way out of the canal. Then trying to get them back in is difficult as they are sticky with wax. I have also figured out that they seem to work better when my ears are a tiny bit wet. I know I know! I shouldn’t be putting them in wet ears. I shower in the morning. I dry out my ears as well as I can and wait until the very last possible second before I walk out the door before putting them in so that my ears are as dry as possible. Also talking on the phone seems to work the dome out as well.
So what is the next thing to try. Do they make stronger locks? I don’t think I can do any larger size domes. Also I read somewhere something about baby oil to lubricate the ear canal? But then I worry that would make them slip out easier.
The point of getting mini BTE is the luxury that no one can tell you have hearing aids. Well digging at my ears 20 times a day putting domes back in looks a little weird and draws attention to the fact that I have hearing aids.
