ok i have a loss form if i’m reading the audiogram correctly 10 and then it goes towards the right and down to 100.
so i’m calling this a 10 to 100 loss. can anyone tell me while looking at that line on the graph is the sounds to the left and down of this line what i hear or is it what i need aids for to hear? in my program i click the sounds button and i see overlays of things lije birds and stuff all over the page. but but it confuses me to what i’m hearing
let’s say the line was starting at the 0 and when diagonally down and right to 120 so the graph is cut in 2 pieces. so what is the hearing aid helping me with the lower left section or the upper right section?
i aske this because i have the moxi 20 pro aids and i programmed them using the in the ear settings becasue just entering the number just doesn’t seem to do anything for me. and when i plug them into my ears i hear stuff and echos and such. but i still can’t heat the wife and others. i have had the volume all over the place. i even went in the program and emphasized the things i thought were for what is was missing.
the other day my granddaughter had a birthday and they got her a cake that had a happy birthday song playing and they said it was loud and annoying i did not hear a thing. i turned up the aids and still nothing. so i took the noise maker out and put the thing up to my ear and in my ear i could get a few notes but over the aids mics nothing both sides the same so what do the hearing aid do? for me it seems like nothing.
and yes i have bitched to the audiologist for 5 years about not hearing anything with these adis. to the point i just got different units so i could program them myself. and just go to my appointments with the aids i got from her to satisfy the contract. now the old aids have stopped working so i will not go back anymore but it will soon be time to get new aids and i want to get something that is actually going to work for me not just make noise in my ear.
when the 4k hz plays i hear clicks and buzzes so i’m guessing i just will never hear those frequencies again but i was told the aids are supposed to take those noises and move them down to where you can hear. so did i hear that wrong? and i think the dr. just gave me aids that she figured i would buy and hear half way and be satisfied. i’m thinking the moxi ads are just not powerful enough and is should be getting something that does not have to work hard at the loss i have. included most recent audiogram. this place says severe loss my work said profound loss, so i’m a bit confused. thanks bp!
