Kinda a update, and a response to your post @ttyndall
Not sure exactly what you mean with “it stays on”. I would rather say that the connection time is 3-6 secs. It rarely connects in only 1 sec for me with my Nokia 7 Plus. Also you can only change programs when both aids are connected. It is a bit strange, as they could sync the programs when you change them on the aids themself with a button press. It would be faster to change programs if you only had to wait for one aid to get connected, and then the HA could relay it to the other one, But they don’t do that.
Therefore I don’t use the app that much, because its slow to connect. But it’s way faster than changing programs when you have to hold for 2 secs, then lift and repeat. (when it’s set to change volume and program depending on the length of the press)
It has only happened once for each side for me. Great for you. I hope it won’t repeat itself. So far it have not happen again.
Great they’re working for you. Tinnitus treatment is about distraction, and nothing works better than actually being able to hear.
The tinnitus thing (were I said they amplified my tinnitus) disappeared after a few days. I just had to get used to them. Now they’re like my old ones (and any other I had before that). I usually don’t notice tinnitus when i wear them, unless its too silent, or i think about it. (that’s the reason I hear music all day long, but only when I’m not home. For whatever reason if its silent when I’m not home, I usually don’t notice my tinnitus. Maybe it’s because i almost always have to listen to something when I’m not home; Traffic, Group chats, Lectures, Work stuff or something else.)
Wind noise is fine on the bike in most cases. It was just a few days that the wind always went directly into the mics. Also the wind noise you describe may be different from the one I hear. I hear the wind directly in the mics, where as (unless you have a roofless car) you experience the noise of the car itself.
More experience with the phone: I had a situation where the phone was ringing, and i was talking to someone. Normally i would be able to mute it, and than maybe if it was still calling take it after a few sentences, but it is really distracting when both your ears are beeping . Most on the other end can hear me fine, but some tell me the sound is hollow, or i sound far away.
Feedback isn’t a problem normally as stated previously. Hair noise have gotten slightly better as I’ve gotten know the aids better now. Still annoying.
They’re comfortable for all day use. I barely notice them. Took a while to get used to them, but its fine now I also compared them to my old ones a few times, but I keep wanting to get the these ones on, instead of the old ones
My adjustment time is sometime in september, I sure need to get them adjusted (but not so badly that I can’t wait). I feel like i turn the volume on the tv up higher with the settings now, and volumes i know was loud before isn’t as loud now. Sometimes it’s great, other times not. I have trouble understanding some persons, but not sure that’s because of the aids or their settings. Some people are just hard to understand as they don’t talk clearly, and with a low voice level/low volume. - Still this is just more of the same as i even stated in my first post of this thread. I’m still on the initial fit, but even then; I’ve gotten mostly used to the Initial/default fit (My audi didn’t make any changes to the amplificated prescribed by the HA’s after a hearing test on the aids themself.)
I hope I make myself somewhat clear, if not please ask
