Please take care when ordering that you know what size and type of dome you require. If in doubt please ask our advice or alternatively the company that supplied your hearing aids.
There are three different types of domes available for GN ReSound hearing aids, RIE Domes, Thin Tube Domes and Surefit Domes, and the type of dome you need to order depends on the type of hearing aid wire or tube that sits in your ear canal.
ReSound domes can be used with ReSound receiver wires or ReSound thin tubes.
ReSound Receiver Wires
If you see a rounder or a square smooth and non-ridged tip like the image below marked ‘NP’ or ‘HP’ please order a ‘RIE Wire Tip Dome’.
If you see a thin ridged end like the image below marked ‘S’, or ‘HP2’ please order a ‘Thin Tube Tip Dome’.
If your hearing aid uses a Surefit wire in metal with the thin ridged end (LiNX², LiNX 3D and LiNX Quattro from around January 2015 onwards) like image below please order a ‘Surefit Tip Dome’.
NB. HP power domes (the double mushroom type with a square shank as opposed to a round shank) for high power receivers need a special tool to remove and re-apply the domes. If you need this type of dome please ask us for the special ReSound Power Dome Removal Tool if you don’t have one. Here is a video showing how to change the HF3 wax guard on a power dome and here is some useful information on how to change a power dome with the special tool. This tool costs an additional £9.95 which we can charge separately.
If you have limited dexterity we advise you don’t attempt to change power domes with the removal tool yourself but ask someone for help.
ReSound Thin Tubes
If you are looking for domes to fit onto a ReSound thin tube you need to compare the two images to the right and decide which one is the same as yours.
ReSound Thin Tubes are like the top image, once you remove the dome you see (in red or blue) a number and a letter, red denoting right and blue denoting left. In this example a right size 0A ReSound Thin Tube.
ReSound Surefit Tubes are like the bottom image, again in red or blue with a number and a letter, but also a coloured line. The Surefit example is a size 1B tube, and note the tip is different design from the thin tube above it.
It is very important that you can see the difference between the two types of thin tube and either order a thin tube dome or a surefit dome accordingly, they are not interchangeable.
All dome variants are supplied as a pack of 8 domes.
Open domes are available as – Small 5mm, Medium 7mm and Large 10mm – £14.95
Tulip domes are available in a Standard size – £19.95
Power domes are available as – Small 8mm, Medium 10mm and Large 12mm – £23.95
If you order the wrong size / type of dome but can return unopened and in a re-saleable condition we are happy to replace with the correct item, however we cannot accept opened packets that we cannot re-sell.
