I have high frequency loss. I have normal hearing until about 1000hz, and then it drops in a steep slide, getting progressively worse as frequency increases. I had some Phonak aids a few years ago that while amplifying higher frequency speech, also amplified all kids of extraneous noise. Last year I tried Oticon OPN 1, but I had the same problem. So in group, all I heard was noise, and I couldn’t differentiate individual speakers. Does anyone have any suggestions of what I might try? I’m unwilling to spend $6 or $7 thousand for aids that won’t really work. Thanks.
