Epoq XW in an HVAC Controlled Area

Hello from Scotland.

I purchased a pair of Epoq XW HA last week or so and have tried wearing these at work. I’m employed offshore on an oil-rig in the North Sea. We have an internal postitive pressure with respect to outside, courtesy of Heating Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC) systems.

My HA have initially been set up in the automatic mode only until such times as I get accustomed to them.

The only concern I have at present is I can’t really wear these in any of the HVAC areas, i.e. anywhere inside the oil rig because the noise of the HVAC just seems to swirl around in my ears.

I’ll be arranging a visit to the audiologist within the coming weeks and was just wondering if anyone else has come across this issue, or know of anyone who has had similar experiences in HVAC area.


if the instrument is set on level 3,
and you constantly turn the volume down
the instrument will start to learn this preference
