I have a question likely geared to the AUDs in the room and/or the more advanced DIYers.
Can you mix Oticon OPN S1 & S3 technology levels on opposing sides?
Meaning can I use one S1 in my left ear and one S3 in my right ear?
After additional audiograms, it looks like my right side hearing is ~5db-10db better than originally expected. Therefore, I was prescribed only a left HA. So instead of only using one OPN S1 in my left ear (as I have now), would it be possible to purchase the much cheaper OPN S3 for my right ear so I have the benefits of two OPN S HAs at about ~$1,200 (between technologies) savings?
Notes: My left HA is not even up to my prescription yet (acclimatization period) and I feel like I can hear so much better on the HA ear than my non-HA ear. It is annoying and I get the sensation that my right ear is clogged and/or I just walked out of a loud environment. I feel having a HA in the right ear would balance things out so to speak. My most updated audiogram is now in my profile.
I hope this makes sense, please ask if you need any clarification. Thanks ahead for your information and thoughts.
