These Widex hearing aids from 2007 (not supplied by us) were probably a little bulbous in appearance due to the ‘toilet seat’ battery drawer. The owner found that the left aid was not comfortable, felt too big and it whistled. This is how it was positioned:

Hopefully, you can see that it’s standing a little proud – with a gap at the top?

I instructed the patient to insert it a little more ‘confidently’, aiming the aid towards the nose. It slipped in to place – apparently for the first time in eight years….

Do you need some good advice?
