First, you get impressions of your ears. It's easy to find an audiologist. Open up Google Maps and just type in "Audiologist." Select a few that are local and convenient to you and give them a call to inquire about the pricing and services offered. Not all audiologists will ONLY do impressions and prices will vary from ~$25 to $100.
If you live in New York City or the Bay Area, just let us know when you would like to swing by one of our labs for free ear scans. We use the latest in-ear scanning technology vs. traditional impressions. Please call 646-559-5642 to set up an appointment.
