BTE Earmold Pre Bent Hearing Aid Tubes 5pcs – 10pcs
£4.99 – £8.49
Behind the ear (BTE) hearing aids that are worn with a moulded earpiece require the tubing to be changed on a regular basis. We recommended every three to six months. Hearing aid tubing comes in different sizes and types, so it is recommended to speak to your Audiologist to see which one is correct for your hearing aid.
Pack Contents :
Pre Bent tubing, standard, medium or thick = pack of 5 or pack of 10
Moisture Free Pre Bent Tubing medium or thick = pack of 5
Over time your tube can become brittle and harden which can be caused by oil from your skin or other products that you use. Therefore, changing the tubing on a regular basis keeps the tube free from wax, debris, and moisture so the sound can travel through tube into the ear.
DIY Tube Changes
You can change the tube yourself at home, but you may require extra tools to help with the job. A tube threader (Available here) , tube expander (Available here) can all be purchased separately, or you can purchase a complete tube change kit these will make sure the tube is replaced securely and correctly each time.
This video created by our sister company Hear4U beautifully demonstrates the process –
Types of Tubing:
*Pre-Bent High Quality Tubing

Sizes of Tubing:
The size of the tubing refers the the thickness of the tube wall itself, we recommend getting in touch with your audiologist if you’re unsure on which you require. The usual rule of this tubing is if you have a higher level of hearing loss, to choose a thicker tube wall.
*Standard Tube Wall approx. 0.5mm thickness
*Medium Tube Wall approx. 0.8mm thickness
*Thick Tube Wall approx. 1mm thickness
Each tube comes in the same length, approx. 11cm. The difference in sizes relates to the thickness of the tubing wall itself.
