Does this occur when you are talking?

One of the reasons it sounds like your ears are clogged or it feels like your head is in a barrel when you speak is due to bone conduction. Your vocal cords create vibrations in your skull that make your voice sound lower and richer than it actually is. Because the device is physically in your ear, sometimes it creates the effect of being “bottled up.” In the majority of cases, it’s just a matter of time before your brain will adjust and you’ll forget about it. If you just started wearing new hearing aids or you wear them infrequently, the best thing you can do is to wear them consistently every day. Within a week, your brain will determine this as the new normal and you’ll no longer notice it.
