I’m listening to the audiologyonline.com course on Genie 2 Programming and thought that the explanation given by Gabrielle Filips on how to interpret the OpenSound Transition setting in OSN interesting. So I’m transcribing what she said about it below to share the info:
Gabrielle Filips: “…For those of you who are familiar with our software, you may have been familiar with the profile that was “lively” all the way to “steady”. So think of “Low” as “Lively” and think of “High” as “Steady”. So “Low” meaning that it may be good for a patient who has worn linear hearing aids for many years, they don’t need as much support as far as compression goes, as far a timing goes for the compression, than somebody who would be in the “High” setting would get more support from a hearing instrument. So that would be a patient who has recruitment, or maybe a patient who just needs noise reduction to kick in sooner and more aggressively.”
There’s more to it than what she said above, but I thought it was an interesting take from her on how to view what those settings mean.
