Thanks for the replies.
I am wearing the smallest open caps, with no dome at all.
My audiologist feels any of the tests wearing the aids are not useful with my hearing loss as they would only show 2 or 3 data points in my significant loss range.
She reprogramed to remove all gain from 250, 500, 1k and 2k, then added about 10db gain to her original curve for 3k and 4k.
This reduced the heavy, metallic echo of my own voice. The racket when I speak is Much thinner and higher now. My clothes no longer sound like sanding plywood when I walk.
I’ll try these settings for a week or so before I make another appointment.
Sorry for my semi-double post. The registration page for this forum is down. I have tried it again and again for a few weeks and attempted emails to contact the admin would not transmit. The admin manually registered me the day I first posted. I was trying to get some information before my audiologist appointment at noon yesterday.
