Hearing aids are designed to be removed easily without getting stuck in your ear. Always verify the tip/dome is all the way on before inserting into your ear.
In-the-ear hearing aids
In-the-ear hearing aids should not get stuck in your ear. Prevent the aid from going too far in your ear canal—it should sit at the entrance to your ear canal and will come to a natural stopping point in your ear. Do not try to push further than this. The dome will also help you comfortably place it into your ear canal.
To prevent the dome from coming off in your ear when you remove the hearing aid, make sure the dome is pushed all the way on the hearing aid BEFORE you insert the hearing aid into your ear canal.
To do so, push the dome over the ridge on the tip of the hearing aid. The white wax guard should be visible through the opening on the tip of the dome.
The removal string will enable you to safely remove the hearing aid by gently pulling the hearing aid up and out of your ear canal.
Behind-the-ear hearing aids
Behind-the-ear hearing aids should also not get stuck in your ear. The hearing aid sits behind the ear and the only part that sits inside the ear canal is the tip and some of the tubing.
To prevent the tip from coming off in your ear when you remove the hearing aid, make sure the tip is pushed all the way on the hearing aid BEFORE you insert the hearing aid into your ear canal.
To do so, push the tip over the ridges on the end of the tubing. The end of the tubing should be visible through the opening on the end of the tip.
