Replacing the ear caps is important because they can become dirty and worn over time. Ear caps can become discolored or develop a buildup of earwax, which can affect the fit and comfort of the hearing aid. Domes clogged with wax or debris will affect the sound quality. When you replace the ear caps you will be able to have a better fit and better sound quality. They also come in different sizes and colors, which can help you to personalize your hearing aid and make it more comfortable for you.
A closed dome provides a better seal in the ear canal which can help to reduce feedback and amplify low frequency sounds. Since a closed dome seals the canal better there may be an increase in the occlusion effect when compared to open dome.
An open dome allows more unamplified sound to pass through the ear canal which can help to reduce the occlusion effect, but also cause less amplification of low frequency sounds.
