The right headphones for each ear.

Covered with soft froth, they fit nicely into the ear. The costly ones are fitted by an audiologist who takes an impression of your ear canal, much as he would for fitting hearing helps. If you're selling your used hearing helps online, say why you are selling them : Did the first owner die? Did they just not fit your ear comfortably? Did you get a cochlear implant? Potential buyers appreciate knowing the circumstances. Sadly , folks are wary about purchasing used hearing helps and you may not get the quantity of money you was hoping for by selling them.

One advantage to giving hearing helps is that you could be able to take their price from your tax return. The used hearing helps are fixed and cleaned and either given to the needy or sold with the proceeds going to charity. When selling or giving used hearing helps, be certain to package them rigorously. Use bubble wrap or other cushioning to hold them in place during shipping and to avoid damage. Insure the package in case it is lost or damaged on the way. The receiver of a second user hearing help should take them to an audiologist for correct adjustment.

Digital hearing helps have to be reprogrammed. An in-the-ear unit would need a new shell to fit a particular ear. Supra-aural headphones are bigger, but they sit on top the ear instead of in it. A plastic covered wire that goes over the head sometimes attaches them to each other.
