Had otosclerosis in the right ear. Fixed with Laser Stamp procedure (different from the normal procedure) six years ago. Worked great, but my nerve of taste was cut and apparently did not reattach. Can’t have the procedure on the left ear as I’d rather be able to taste food than hear in the left ear. I’m looking into a hearing aid as a way to keep the tinnitus away.
Anyway, since the low frequencies are where the work is needed, are there certain types of hearing aids that would not take away the good frequencies? I’d like things to sound as natural as possible. What makes a person choose BTE over in the ear designs? Which sounds more natural? I spoke with an audiologist on the phone (not ready for the full appt yet), and she seemed to think that Widex would be good for low frequency loss. Why? Anyway, my hearing loss is not that bad yet, mildly annoying. Thanks
