In less than 60 seconds per ear, the Lantos 3D Laser Ear Imaging System maps over a million data points from the outer ear down to the eardrum, producing a 3D rendering of the ear in real time that can be immediately uploaded to make custom-fit hearing products.
This state-of-the-art technology is a modern, safe, accurate – and non-invasive – way to capture the geometry of the ear. It offers many significant benefits. Here are the top five:1. Digital Accuracy Provides Superior Comfort and Sound
By capturing an extremely detailed 3D rendering of your ear with precise digital accuracy, the Lantos System can be used to make custom-fit hearing products built to the exact specifications of your unique anatomy, which provides greater comfort and superior sound quality.
3D laser ear scanning is more comfortable and less invasive than the process used for taking traditional silicone-based earmold impressions. You can see what’s happening at every step of the way, and you don’t need to sit still for five minutes while goop hardens in your ear.
Watch on the monitor and see inside your ear as the Lantos membrane is placed down the ear canal, capturing the exact dimensions of your ear. Then watch the shape of your ear’s unique geometry build into a 3D image in real time.

The output of the Lantos 3D Ear Scanning System is a 3D digital file, which can be uploaded immediately for product manufacturing. This streamlined, fully-digital process decreases shipping and production time, so you’ll get your custom-fit hearing products more quickly.
Once your ear is scanned, the digital rendering of your ear stays on file. If you lose a hearing aid, we can reorder one with the touch of a button. Decide that you’d like other custom-fit products, like swim plugs or sleep plugs? We can use that same scan to make you unlimited hearing products designed to the exact specifications of your ear.
