Hi All, I am going for my first visit after receiving my new HA’s. I am able to turn the TV volume down three or four notches. I hear the dishwasher changing cycles, I hear the AC and my keys jingling when I walk. I have a heavy fire door in my new apartment. I can hear talking and laughing at the 9:30 AM chat group in the hall. Never have I been able to hear that before so that is a very good thing.
My car Sirius radio does not seem as clear as it should be. Perhaps I could set it as a program because I don’t know if it is road noise or just bad sound. Also hearing on my iPhone is pretty bad. I have no idea if this is the best I will get or should I try for more? I just don’t know what to accept. I still am unable to understand people talking through their facemasks about 10-15 feet away.
Maybe my fitter will tell me “hey you are doing pretty well.” I have no occlusion or feedback. I wear double domes with no vents. I feel this is awesome from what I read on here about vents etc.
The best volume for me is to put my Resound aid with the built in Roger near the TV speaker but that slurps up a lot of juice.
Would love to hear what you all think. Thank you
