On the Go Cochlear Implant Headbands
This elastic cochlear implant headband is 5/8" wide and is made with four loops for bilateral users (two loops per cochlear implant processor or hearing aid). These loops are movable, so the hearing device may be placed behind the ear with the ear hook. If you prefer fewer loops, the extra loops can be easily cut off with scissors.
I recommend measuring very snugly past the hairline where the elastic will sit to get the best fit. Select the wearer's actual head size and size down if between sizes.
Note: Elastic IS stretchy. You may prefer the band to be extra snug, and you may size down according to your preference.
However, for glitter headbands and swim bands, it is important to select the accurate head size so it won't be too small.
If you have bought headbands from other sites that use "finished size" choices, you can use the chart below to compare.
