Abstract: The present invention provides a method of manufacturing a receiver-in-canal assembly. The method comprises the steps of providing a receiver housing configured to be positioned in or at the ear canal of a user, and further being configured to comprise a receiver configured to output sound; providing a connector housing configured to be connected to a behind-the-ear part of a hearing aid; and providing an elongated tube configured for transfer of a signal from the connector housing to the receiver housing. In a further step the receiver housing and the connector housing are attached to opposite ends of the elongated tube. Subsequently, the tube is permanently deformed after attachment of the receiver housing and the connector housing to the tube by exposing it to heat in a first predetermined treatment period.
