CICs are very difficult at times. Many CICs get clogged with wax and do not
functions properly. Learning how to clean them is essential to caring for
the hearing aids. Since they fit so far in the ear canal they are more pron
to getting clogged. It may be hard for you to tell if they are working at a
set level without them being tested acoustically by an audiologist. You are
the best judge to whether they are working correctly or not. Speak to your
audiologist about your concerns.
