I have severe flat/low frequency hearing loss. Basically looks like -70db across the board. My loss was a result of my Meniere’s that destroys the cells.
Am in trial with a Zerena 9 from Costco. Two adjustments later it is o’k. A bit tinny sounding. (My ear canals are smaller. I can shove a closed dome 8mm in but it is not so comfortable that you forget it is there by any means. But a 6mm which is way more comfortable has too much feedback.)
I asked about trying a Resound (they have a better app) but audiologist said that the Resound units sound more tinny, that Zerenas offer a more natural balanced sound.
Wanted to check with others who may have tried both for an opinion? Is the Resound truly more tinny? Is there a “better” aid that may sound more balanced that I should try?
(This is not my first hearing aid but my hearing was easier to fit 5 years ago. I do think that the fitter at Costco is doing a great job tweeking the settings - as good as the private audiologist who fitted me with my first HA)
