I have been learning from this forum for a few weeks and decided to join. You do a great job sharing information and advice about a very serious life-quality affecting problem. Thanks!!
I am reaching the end of my trial period for my Siemens Intuis Life BTE. They have made a great improvement in my hearing and ability to communicate, particularly at work. I have severe hearing loss beginning at 1500 cycles and dropping to -90 DB at 3k.
A couple questions:
How can you tell if they are adjusted for too much gain: Should people speaking loudly almost hurt your ears. I’ll take this up with him tomorrow, but it’s decision time and I’d like to go in informed.
What mistakes should I avoid making? Are there any that are common to first time buyers? It’s a chunk of money and I don’t want to make any avoidable errors.
Thanks for your help.
