New to hearing aids… this week. I just got the Bernaform verite, left ear only, right era has had sudden and severe loss,see below and changes from day to day. It is a receiver in the ear with complete “block” ( double wall plastic do-hickey around the receiver)
My question is background HISS. Whenever I have the volume turned up to hear background noises, such as the musak in a store, it is accompanied by a loud high frequency woosh or hiss.
It’s like tinnitus in a can… I paid for this problem??
Now my ear is such that I have better lows than highs, so I expect high frequency noise from the left hearing aid. I also note it comes and goes depending on background. I can get rid of it in a car with windows up, but it comes right back if I turn the ventilating fan on… so it is, in part , response to the environment.
My question is this a common experience… or did I just buy a lemon aid.
