Athletics and Earpieces

Dear Sports Enthusiast!

Acquiring a soft earpiece for your hearing instrument should not be a problem.

The choice of the material will depend on the hearing aid style you use. If it is a custom in-the-ear hearing aid, the aid's shell can be made from a soft plastic such as vinyl, or medical grade silicone. If it is a behind-the-ear instrument, the earmold can be made from one of the above materials, and also from a soft acrylic or polyurethane foam.

It would be proper if you contacted your hearing health care professional to discuss the material that would be the best for you. While presenting you with the options, the professional will consider additional factors such as the type of your hearing loss, and your age. They can also recommend an earmold lab that would make the earpiece in the color of your jersey, or even make the mold with the team's logo.
