Starkey Hearing Aid Comfort Buds / Domes
Comfort Bud design by Starkey Hearing Technologies was to create an earbud that could consistently provide proper comfort, acoustics, retention and protection for Starkey hearing aid users. Simultaneously serve as the first line of defence against dirt, debris and cerumen.
Suitable for all Starkey RIC Receivers/Thin Tubes.
Includes: Pack of 10 Comfort Buds (Domes)
As you wear your hearing aids for long lengths of time it is essential that your domes are safe, secure and comfortable. The unique contour of the Comfort Buds provides you with consistent, long-term comfort. Whereas many earbuds touch only certain parts of the ear canal wall, causing an unequal feeling or pressure points in the ear. The equal and sturdy wall sections of the Comfort Bud help to eliminate hot spots, providing consistent patient comfort.
Types of Starkey Comfort Buds:
Open: available in sizes 5mm, 6mm, 7mm, 9mm & 11mm
Occluded: available in sizes 5mm, 6mm, 7mm, 9mm & 11mm
PLEASE NOTE: We are more than happy to help identify which dome you need if you are unsure, but please note domes are NON RETURNABLE when they have been opened due to health & hygiene purposes. Please be sure on your dome type, and size, before purchasing to avoid disappointment.
Open Comfort Buds:
The open Comfort Bud was designed to provide comfort and maximum acoustic openness. The vents on the open Comfort Bud are positioned to reduce contact with the ear canal wall, which reduces itchiness and pressure points. Helping to maintain the desired openness for comfort and acoustics.
The occluded Comfort Bud provides consistent occlusion (secure/close fitting). Other types of earbuds may fold or irregularly bend upon insertion into the ear, reducing the acoustic seal of the earbud. The Comfort Bud has a retaining ring that helps it to resist puckering even when the earbud is being constricted. Achieved occlusion with other earbud designs may differ greatly depending upon earbud position or placement; with the occluded Comfort Bud, a more consistent fit can be achieved with each insertion.
Retention in the ear:
The unique design of the Comfort Bud also allows it to provide consistent retention in the ear. It is designed to wrap around the first bend of the ear canal in order to achieve greater retention. Unlike other earbuds, which may press against the bend of the ear or fold up against the ear canal wall, the Comfort Bud was designed to adapt to ear canal irregularities for secure retention.
Protection against wax:
The Comfort Bud is a strong barrier between your ear and the hearing aid receiver. The wax bridge deflects dirt and debris to protect the acoustic port. Its flexible design allows it to move and bend, thereby preventing cerumen and dirt from being scooped into unwanted areas during hearing aid insertions and removals.
