    So, here was the email exchange with Century Hearing Aids:


    HI,

    I understand you are inquiry about zip tips. The sizes are as follows:


    Small, 5mm
    Medium, 7mm
    Large, 10mm


    Average size ear is medium if you have a smaller or bigger ear size up or down. The zip tips have options if you have a behind the ear model, open fit, or receiver in the canal. They should fit your aid, they are not only meant for our aids. Please let me know if there is anything else I can help you with.


    Happy Hearing,

    I guess I would feel more comfortable placing my order if there was a more definitive way to know the correct size. Especially since they are non-refundable.


    I think I will just go to Costco and get some traditional custom molds.


    Thank you

    No problem, please let me know if there is anything else I can help you with.

    ^^^^ OK, then my next question is: do these zip tips fit OVER a receiver? Would they fit on a size 85 Oticon Opn receiver f'instance? I printed out a picture of what the zip tip looks like from that link given. So at least I get the general idea that they seem to fit like a cup in the ear. So I'm hoping that a receiver would be poked into that cup, which would then sit snugly in the ear's doorway?

    yes the receiver slides up into the tip...if you look closely at the pic. you will see 2 holes... 1 is for the receiver and the other is a vent hole

    Have you got sports locks fitted to the receivers? They will give extra retention without having to change your tips

    GREAT!! Yes, I did notice the 2 holes. I'll bring my printout AND the comfy foam tips to my aud-guy to see what he thinks. In particular, the zip tips seem like they'd provide a really good seal, which would be of HUGE benefit to me with my loss curve, and need for a power receiver.
