Hearing Aid Size Guide

Ear Measurement Guide for Hearing Aids

Choosing the right-sized hearing aid is crucial for comfort and optimal performance. Follow these simple steps to accurately measure your ears:

Gather the Essentials

Before you start, make sure you have a flexible tape measure, a mirror, and a pen and paper for note-taking. and then measure in front of where the measuring tape meets itself.

Measure the Length of Your Ear

Place the tape measure at the top of your ear where it connects to your head. Extend the tape measure down along the outer edge of your ear to the bottom. Record this length in millimeters for both ears.

Find a Comfortable Space

Sit in a well-lit and quiet area where you can easily focus on the measurements near the front and in a well-lit, quiet spot.

Measure the Width of Your Ear Canal

Use the tape measure to determine the width of your ear canal. Gently insert the tape measure into the ear canal and note the measurement in millimeters. Repeat for both ears.

Consult with a Professional

Take note of any unique features of your ears, such as the shape or any specific contours. These details can help in selecting hearing aids that fit snugly and comfortably.

Note any Unique Features & benefits

If you're uncertain about the measurements or need personalized advice, don't hesitate to consult with a hearing healthcare professional. They can provide guidance based on your individual needs.

Use the measurement conversion chart to identify the appropriate length. If the measurement is on the line of two sizes, go with the shorter length.

Dr.Hassan Karim saw me not only the same day, but in about 3 hours from me reaching out to make an appointment. Sorted out my ears in minutes and I was on my way, able to hear properly again. Absolutely brilliant. And at a really reasonable price. Can't fault it, fantastic, would recommend to anyone if you're having problems with your ears/hearing.

Highly recommend. I struggled with intermittent hearing loss for a few weeks which got worse so I couldn’t hear anything at all in one ear due to impacted ear wax. Same day appointment offered which cleared the problem. Don’t waste money trying different options .. Honestly, instant result! Thank you so much.

This is my third visit to Hassan and because I can't give 6 stars, I thought I'd just submit another 5-star review. My most recent visit was booked less than 24 hours in advance for a Sunday. Hassan removed wax, gave me a hearing test, and consulted on further treatment options. The convenience, care, and price all make this a fantastic business. Thank you again, Hassan!

My earwax was quite hard and I had pain in the ear and couldn't hear well. Hassan was quite patient and offered a free additional session later to let the olive oil soften the wax. He was even willing to offer one more free session. I will definitely recommend this place to everyone.
