I just wonder…when you go to a general HA clinic to have your new HA adjusted, how can you be shure you got the optimal setup? I mean, the audiologists have to be able to support all the different products and their appropriate SW and so on.
I happen to know that these SW setups programs have several hearing profiles for different type of hearing impairment and purposes. But I have never been informed or asked to try out any of this. I suspect most leave with the “standard” auto-setup based on your audiogram. It’s easy and quick and in many cases of course perfectly ok.
But my experience is that when I went to the audiologists at the HA products main office, in my case Signia, the were willing to discuss and had the knowledge to tweak the programming to optimize it for my purpose. After all they should know their own products.
I there some general truth in this?
