I’ve always need a vented ear mold for some level of air flow when wearing hearing aids. When I’ve tried a non-vented in mold (ten years ago) I got occlussion and felt as if my ears were always full. I also noticed many times when I walked I could feel the step by step vibration in my ears. So now fast forward and I’m being told that the power aid I’m testing will not fully reach its (range capabilities/program capabilities) unless I return to a full ear mold with no vent. My Audi said using a vent (in ear mold) will limit my hearing aid usefulness and prevent her from properly programming my hearing aid. We not necessarily talking “feedback” here but I assume a vent can impact the degree with which an Audi can fully program a hearing aid.
So just out of curiosity are there any hearing aid users who use non-vented ear molds with power aids? And my change anyone that completely switched from vent mold to sealed mold.
