Good ear impressions are the key to perfect fitting Custom In Ear Monitors. Please refer to a qualified audiologist to take your impressions and make sure that he reads, understands and applies the data contained in our guide. You should also double check with your own eyes if the audiologist’s work is compliant with our guidelines in order to avoid waste of time and money.
We require a full impression of each ear. Impressions must include the full helix, crus of the helix, tragus and antitragus and must go past the second bend of the ear canal.
(Ask your audiologist to make sure your ear canal is unobstructed, free from any inflammation or any other problem: in case see your otolaryngologist)
A high viscosity silicone impression material is preferred. Color is irrelevant.
The impression must be taken keeping your mouth open!
Please use a 1-2” (3/5 cm) bite block during the whole impression process to reduce jaw movement: jaw movement will squeeze the silicon and produce a smaller impression that will reduce the cIEM sealing.
Get your impressions pre-approved!
Take pictures of your impressions in four lateral angles plus the top and the bottom and send them to firstname.lastname@example.org along with your name and order number: we’ll be happy to pre-check them for you for free!
