Hi Steve =D
I managed to get all the settings in a printable version; thanks for the help with that!
I have a couple of things to ask you:
(i) Currently I find things loud in my left ear. The hearing aid was set according to the audiogram, and then reduced some more. I have taken multiple audiograms over the past few weeks-all of them show around the same loss in my left ear, but when the hearing aid is set for that ear, it sounds way too loud. Do you know of a way to get past this?
(ii) I was having some problems with speech clarity. My audiologist recommended that he increase the gain in the 3.5Hz for my right ear (since I rely on my right ear for speech). After he increased it, the other sounds are sounding REALLY loud-I have a splitting headache. The things I find loud are: washing of cutlery, running water, cd cover being put down on the desk. (strangely, most of the increase in loudness seems to come from my left side although no changes have been made in that ear) The speech however, is clearer. Is there a way to amplify only the speech and not the background noise?
(iii) I was looking through the settings on the printable version. I would like to understand what the following symbols mean and how changing them affects my hearing.(they appear in the box that list numbers under each frequency) The symbols are: TK, G40, G60, G80, MPO, CR
Would it help if I mailed you my audiograms and settings as an attachment? I can’t attach documents to posts on this forum.
I really appreciate your help on this-all the recommendations you’ve made were wonderful!
