I’m so grateful I have the hearing aids I have. I had Phonak B70’s for about 3 years and had real issues.
The Phonak Audeo Paradise P90R’s are working better for me. However, I get comments from SWMBO that they aren’t set up right. That’s when I don’t respond to what she’s said…it’s not selective hearing.
I used the Music Program for a while; at my request that’s the “turn-on” program for my hearing aids. Since then I’ve saved and adjusted or enhanced Auto program. That’s my second program. So I can get to it readily when I remember to…
My enhanced “Automatic with Clarity” program has boosted Treble, Mid, but reduced base. Volume is adjusted to prevent feedback. Noise Reduction is turned off. Speech Focus is set at about 220 degrees…
Yet my Better Half still says they’re not set up right.
My response is to take the wax guards and domes off. About 1/2 the time I’ve found that the wax guards are not centred in the receiver because I was clumsy putting them in, or taking the dome off. The wax guards … oh my they are terrible for me to install and remove.
So…observing my use habits—I use my hearing aids about 17 hours a day. I want to use the automatic program. Why would I have these hearing aids if I don’t use the intelligence built in?
Finally, if I had known about the little tiny wax guards I would have pushed for another make of hearing aids (mine were specially provided to me due to concern about safety using my old hearing aids)
