Frequently Asked Questions | Nitro Ear
How are the impressions made for the proper fit?
As you place your order, you may choose to receive an "at-home" impression kit, or you may choose to have the impressions done professionally at any Audiologist, E.N.T., or hearing aid dealer in your area.
With the professional option, you will not receive an "at-home" impression kit. Generally, most professionals will charge you $45-$100 for this service.
If you choose to do the impressions yourself, allow 2-4 days for delivery of impression kit. Shipping will normally not take this long unless there are unforeseen weather problems or Holiday delays. The impression kit includes a detailed instruction guide giving you step by step in the impression taking process and includes packaging for return to Nitro Ear.
If you choose to get the impressions professionally done, the impressions must be sent to Nitro Ear in a BOX, not an envelope or padded envelope. Otherwise, the impressions could be damaged in transit. Once the impressions are received, the manufacturing and shipping process will take 2-4 weeks. We offer a fit guarantee as part of the original warranty.
Do you offer a "standard" or "one size fits all" product?
Along with our custom Nitro Flex custom units, we offer a one-size-fits-all product with our Nitro Versa-Fit. This product comes with three sizes of earbuds to choose from for maximum comfort and a better seal to prevent feedback. Although the one-size-fits-all ear pieces will fit most people just fine, there are occasions where custom products are needed in cases where the ear canal is abnormally shaped or if feedback is a problem.
Can I order just a single NitroEar unit for one ear?
Yes, you can order just one NitroEar if needed. The default option is two units. The main drawback to only getting one unit is that you are only protecting one ear. Since we have been in the hearing industry for over 30 years, we understand that there are some reasons for only needing one unit. For instance, one ear may be completely deaf, so there is really nothing to protect. Therefore, we will sell only one if it is desired. The price for only one unit will be half of the listed pair price.
Can my custom Nitro Flex units be customized to my hearing loss?
Yes, the custom Nitro Flex units have a programmable circuit that allows us to customize the unit to a particular hearing loss. All you have to do is send us a copy of your hearing test and we will adjust the appropriate frequencies to compensate for that loss.
