Earmolds are available in a wide variety of types, colors, and sizes. The type and size is determined by the intended use of the earmold. For hearing aids the type is based on the severity of your hearing loss and listening needs, as well as, the style of hearing aid you purchased. Dr. Lamb will review and recommend the best earmold option for your use and hearing as well as take an impression of your ear(s) in order to map the unique contours of your ear. Other types of earmolds include: molds to improve the fit of earbuds, molds for hearing protection, swim molds to keep water out of the ear(s), and sleep molds to help you ignore your partner’s snoring.
