A new approach to fitting hearing instruments in the ear canal instantly and comfortably is reportedly offered by Hearing Components. The new disposable Comply™ Snap Tips and Comply™ Snap Earpieces are designed to allow patients to walk out of a hearing professional’s office comfortably wearing a hearing instrument. The products may be used on a temporary basis or in place of custom earmolds, says the company. The Snap Tips are attached to the Snap Earpiece or to an adapter built into the end of an ITE hearing instrument. The earpieces are said to be instant fitting and nearly invisible. The new tip design incorporates a built-in layer of filter foam for protection against ear wax, and one 10-pack of tips lasts a patient about six months.
