I guess we all know that Costco hearing specialists are not on commission. My experience today reflects that fact.
It’s just past the 3rd anniversary of my KS7 aids so I my health insurance will allow up to $3K for new ones. I had a hearing test today at the Prescott, AZ Costco (results changed only a little) and with a struggle, I updated them for this forum.
The specialist checked my KS7’s cleaning out a wax buildup and she increased the levels at most frequency bands. Noises are now considerably louder and it will take time to get used to them.
She found my hearing comprehension very poor, especially for the L ear and said new aids would provide little benefit. So now I have louder KS7’s. Will have to see whether I can hear better.
My hearing deteriorated considerably 7 years ago when I had chemo for leukemia. I guess I’ll just have to live with the disability.
