I am 43 yrs old. I have a U shaped curve permanent hearing loss mainly located in the mid frequencies (40 db from 500 hz to 2 kz) bilateral, with tinnitus (like a white noise in the background). High freq is more or less OK (R 10 L 20 at 8 khz) and Bass is OK (R+L 0 at 125 Hz). I tried Phonak Audeo V, iX, and now trying mico Eleva. Audeo V worked well. I also found micro Eleva provides great results in usual situations. However in difficult (noisy) situations Audeo IX is believed to be superior, but I find it hard to notice. Any advice or other things to consider before making the final choice?
Is there a test procedure I should follow?
Cost is not an issue, better hearing is a top priority for me.
