Ear canal fitting problem


Ii use Phonak aids with a double dome type in the canal fitting. However they don’t stay put and slip outwards so I lose the sound. Constantly having to push them back in which sharply increases the sound only for it slowly to diminish again. Only way to maintain a conversation is to keep my finger pushed to my ear canal. This gets quite sore too. Anyone had similar issues and overcome them?

  • First point of call should be your audiologist.  Problem could be the size of the domes, the length of the tube, the absence of a retention cord, or even the shape and structure of your ear.
