The Hearing Aids Domes

The Hearing Aids Domes

Currently,the Hearing devices,have become smaller and more effective at delivering amplified sound to the auditory system with each generation. Today, thanks to a tiny device known as a hearing aid dome, some types of hearing aids are providing their users with better sound quality than ever before,including the Earsmate hearing aids products.

The domes are small bell  or mushroom-shaped silicone pieces that attach to the end of hearing aid tubing and fit deep in the ear canal. They come in different shapes and sizes to accommodate the unique twists and turns of each individual’s ear canal.

They're usually used with behind-the-ear styles of hearing aids referred to as either receiver in the canal (RIC) or receiver in the ear (RITE). Your hearing healthcare professional helps you pick which size of dome and length of tubing is best suited for the width and length of your ear canal.

An RIC/RITE style of hearing aid puts the loudspeaker deep in the ear canal and keeps the processor and microphone on top of the ear,as the hearing aids manufacturer,the earmate has a new RIC hearing aid of G-28C launched in April of 2019.This model G-28C is a new Built In High Capacity Rechargeable Lithium Ion Battery Receiver in canal RIC Earsmate Rechargeable Hearing aid For Hearing Sound Amplify with 2 Trimmer Mode Adjustable,Light Weight and Discreet Design Easy to Use Operation By a Finger Only Active Digital Noise Reduction.

The pros and cons of hearing aid domes


One of the biggest advantages to wearing a dome is the way it fits inside the ear canal.

“The important thing about hearing aids is we must vent the hearing device so the ears don’t get occluded,” Contento said. This allows some natural sound and airflow to come into the ear. “Domes are open enough to let low frequencies come through so the hearing aid amplifies higher frequencies and you can hear more clearly. That’s how we get better high frequencies without acoustic feedback.” 

Domes are easily cleaned by wiping them with a soft cloth each night after use. Because some hearing aid manufacturers share dome styles and sizes, they are also relatively inexpensive to replace.


“But they don’t last forever,” Tom said. “Domes must be changed every two to three months. And if a person isn’t careful, it can get stuck in their ear if they are in a hurry or too lazy. That doesn’t happen if you do it right.”

To prevent problems, talk to your practitioner about how often to change your hearing aid domes and how to take care of them. Never use old domes on new hearing aids. They're not always compatible and can become stuck in someone's ear canal if they don't stay attached to the receiver.

Also, domes are susceptible to damage from wax or moisture in the ear. Lastly, their small size can be problematic for those with dexterity issues.
