How to clean RITE and Corda miniFIT earmolds (with speaker) 

Oticon molds

About the different types of hearing aid molds

Molds for RITE speakers and for Corda miniFit

Molds for speakers range from MicroMold and LiteTip to Power Mold solutions, and they are used with RITE styles. For thin tube fittings on a BTE instrument, a Corda mold is used. Since they are custom-made from an ear impression, molds keep the hearing aid more securely locked in the ear as they take advantage of all the curves and contours of the ear.

Because there are several different types of molds which need to be cleaned differently, it is important to make sure you know which solution you have.

Molds used for RITE styles should not be detached from the hearing aid. They contain electronics and therefore must never be washed or immersed in water or other liquids.

Maintain the MicroMold, LiteTip or Power Mold

The mold should be cleaned regularly. The wax filter in the earpiece should be replaced when clogged or when the hearing instrument does not sound normal. Use the wax filter delivered by your hearing care professional.

If you are unsure which type of mold you have, please consult your hearing care professional.

Cleaning a mold

Due to the coronavirus, please wear gloves when cleaning hearing aids.
The mold should be wiped clean with a dry cloth. Clean the ventilation opening by pressing the brush through the hole while twisting it slightly:

The wax filter should also be cleaned regularly. See instructions for how to change the wax filter.

Important notice!

The hearing aid itself with mold must never be washed or immersed in water or other liquids.
