No two ears are the same

Ear canal shape and size can vary greatly between people. Even the left and right ears can differ on the same person. So why do most listening ear buds only come in one standard size? Some people do not find standard ear buds to fit comfortably inside their ear canals while listening to music.

One size does not fit all

Have you ever tried going for a jog while listening to music, and the ear buds constantly pull out of your ears? Even the Apple company has caught on to this problem and has changed the shape of their buds. But, of course, one size does not fit all ears. Well, now there’s a solution!

It’s easy

All it takes is an appointment with your local Doctor of Audiology. They can take a mold of the inside of your ear canals and send them away to be made into custom-fit earpieces that any standard ear bud can be attached to. This creates a sealed, molded earpiece especially fitted for each of your ears. These custom molds are made from a soft, silicone, hypoallergenic material and are a worthwhile investment for those with small or narrow ear canals. These custom fit adaptors are made perfectly unique to your ears, and they allow you to listen to your music clearer without having to move and adjust your earphones! They also reduce unnecessary background noise, making it ideal to use while traveling, jogging, or exercising.
