A Perfect Impression, Every Time
A great fit requires perfect ear impressions
The outcome of your custom ear product relies on the quality of your ear impressions.
It takes a lot of experience to consistently achieve perfect ear impressions. There’s an art and science involved and the skill of your audiologist is key to great results.
That’s why our standard of quality is:
We do it right the first time. Every time.
TAKING YOUR EAR IMPRESSIONS
The entire procedure is completely painless and takes about 15 minutes.
Step 1: Visual inspection
The audiologist will use light and magnification to ensure your ear canal is healthy and clear. We want to be 100% sure that it is safe to take the impressions.
Step 2: Insert the Oto Block
Here, we use a sterilized lighted tip to insert a perfectly sized, sterile cotton with removal string. This ensures that our impression material stops at the correct depth (about 25mm)
Step 3: Impression material (the fun part)
Now that everything is set up for safety, we inject a 2-part silicone impression material. You’ll feel your ear fill up and things go quiet. You can relax and enjoy the silence. (most people find this to be a very cool experience)
Step 4: Remove completed impression
After about 5-10 minutes the impression material is completely cured and the impression is removed slowly and carefully. You may be asked to open and close your mouth during this step.
VOILA – YOUR PERFECT EAR IMPRESSIONS

What happens to your ear impressions?
We send your ear impressions to our production lab where they use them to create your perfect fitting earplugs.
Note: The impressions are NOT the final product. They are used to create a mold which is filled to cast the final earplugs out of medical grade soft silicone.
