I have been wondering about the degree to which my hearing thresholds have changed for each frequency since I have been wearing my new HAs. My initial audiogram was done by an audiologist in my ENT doctor’s office in the usual sound proof room. This was done immediately after he cleaned my ears.
As some of you know I have purchased Phonak P90 RT aids online and therefore the testing is done in my aids via the myPhonak app. I did not ask my online audi about the first test results she did but plan to next week.
I would like to know your experiences in trying to determine how your audiograms have changed since wearing your aids. I know that test-retest variability happens because of different levels of concentration and response time on any given day. However, that can’t really be more than about 5 dB for each frequency. But, if you have a test-retest done by two different means how reliable are the results? I suppose I could go back to my physician and have another test done but I’d like to know your opinions first.
