A common issue that people report with new hearing aids is that internal noises such as chewing are uncomfortably loud. Sometimes if the problem is minor, it can just be a case of getting used to the new sound and feeling. However, if the problem persists and is interfering with the benefit you obtain from the aid, it is more likely to be due to the way the hearing aid or earmould is sitting in the ear canal. Most hearing aids or earmoulds will have an air vent built into them to try to alleviate a blocked feeling, to let some natural sound in and reduce the 'occlusion effect’ of having your ear canal blocked that can also result in your own voice sounding much louder. If you explain your experience to your hearing aid provider, they can adjust the aid shell or earmould to improve your comfort and hearing aid benefit.
