Array of Eargo Flexi tips





Everyone’s hearing loss is different, with corresponding hearing needs that are equally unique for each individual. The same goes for a person’s ears. There are big ears, small ears, wide ear canals, narrow ear canals, etc. Knowing this, we’ve created various types of “tips” (the part of the hearing aid that enters the ear canal first) to fit as comfortably in as many ears as possible, and to provide the best audio solution for each person.


We know that people are looking for a comfortable, functional hearing aid as much as they are looking to hear their individual lives to the fullest, so we’ve put together this information about our current tip options to help with ear comfort and sound clarity.

For use with Eargo 5, Eargo 6, and Eargo 7:

Closed Petals can provide a fuller, rounder sound and help to control feedback. This is because they hold more mid-frequency sound in the canal to give them fullness. Conversely, they let less sound out in the high frequencies, which helps to control acoustic feedback.

Open Petals allow a better balance of “natural sound that you can still hear well” – to – “amplified sound from the hearing aid.” It can help reduce the occlusion effect, which reduces own-voice vibration in the head and improves sound quality. Open Petals may also reduce some itching/irritation as compared to closed Petals.

For use with Eargo SE:

Trumpets come in a single style (there is no ‘open’ or ‘closed’ style) and in three sizes: small, medium, and large. Eargo SE devices ship with medium Trumpets pre-attached but also include both small and large sizes underneath the charger tray in the box.

For use with LINK By Eargo:

Closed eartips are a great choice if you're using LINK BY Eargo mainly for streaming audio and active noise cancellation as many people prefer the fuller, richer sound quality, and more effective noise reduction that occurs with a ‘sealed’ ear canal. They’re also a good choice for listening to speech in background noise. 

Open eartips are less blocking and work well for using LINK by Eargo primarily as situational hearing aids. They’re a good choice for listening to speech in a relatively quiet environment, especially if you struggle to hear soft and high pitch sounds on the treble part of the spectrum. They amplify the high pitch sounds, while allowing low pitch sounds in through the (open) holes, so your ears can process the bass parts normally. This results in more natural sound quality.

You may find that you want to change the style of your LINK By Eargo eartips depending on your listening situation.

Which size may be right for you?

If your Eargos slide out after full insertion, go larger. And if the hearing aid cannot be inserted fully, go smaller. Need to control feedback? Try a larger tip if you’re able to fully insert the hearing aid with the larger tip on.

Hearing aids only work if you wear them, and nobody wants to wear something that is uncomfortable. That’s why we have multiple tip options available to ensure you get the best sound, with the most comfortable fit.
