Custom Earmolds Part 1: Introduction

When you visit a Portland hearing loss doctor, you expect to receive individualized, customized care. So why not expect the same thing from your hearing aids, ear plugs and other in-ear accessories?

Custom earmolds are gaining popularity amongst our Portland patients. These earmolds are created personally for your ears and can be used for a variety of purposes. They ensure an effective, excellent, comfortable fit for every hearing aid, ear plug or other device.

Whether they enjoy excellent hearing health or have been diagnosed with hearing loss, Portland patients choose custom earmolds for many uses including:

  • Hearing aids
  • Earplugs
  • Noise-protection plugs
  • Earbuds
  • Headphones
  • Stethoscopes
  • Earpieces
  • Hunter’s plugs
  • Swimmer’s plugs
  • Musician’s monitors

Custom earmolds offer countless benefits to any Portlander willing to investment in their hearing health. Since everyone’s ears are different, personal in-ear devices mean a perfect fit, long-term comfort, improved acoustics, heightened hearing and individualized features.

Parts 2–4 of PDX ENT’s Custom Earmold series will look at some of the most popular types of custom earmolds in-depth. Check back each week in May to read new posts about swim plugs, noise-protection plugs and musician’s monitors created from custom earmolds.

Creating Custom Earmolds

Getting a hearing aid or other device made from custom earmolds is a simple process. First, a hearing loss specialist at our clinic will create molds of your outer and middle ears using a fast, pain-free, mess-free method. Once we’ve created your earmolds, we send them to a hearing aid manufacturer who will manufacture the product you ordered from the silicone molds made from your ears.

If you think you would benefit from any product made from a custom earmold, talk to one of the top Portland hearing loss specialists at PDX ENT & Audiology Medical Group today. We treat hearing loss at two convenient Portland locations in Southwest and Northwest PDX.
