What is an ear impression?

An ear impression is a silicone-based mold made from the exact shape of your ear or ear canal. It’s needed in order to create in-the-ear, in-the-canal, or completely-in-the-canal hearing aids, as well as custom-fit earplugs, musician’s earplugs, or swimmer’s plugs.

The process for making an ear mold is easy and painless. Your hearing health professional will place a soft, doughy material into your ear and let it sit for a few minutes and mold into shape. Once it has hardened, they will remove the material and have a completely accurate model of your ear to send to the hearing aid manufacturer.
