First and foremost thank you for taking the time to read this and hopefully give me some advice. I am 2 weeks into my first set of hearing aids ever. I am supposed to head back to the audiologist for further programming and adjustments next week. I was not given any instructions on what to tune into or suggest on for adjustments. I think I have adapted to wearing them, often forgetting I am wearing them. I am floored on what I was missing in the world. At night when they come out I am shocked at how quiet and dull the world sounds.
My loss is at the mid to upper frequencies and is considered mild. I was placed into Oticon Opn2 hearing aids.
I have noticed that I tend to have to set them to volume 2 to hear clearly the tv at “normal” levels (according to my family). Also turning them up in meetings and noisy environments.
Wind noise is obnoxious and I read they have wind noise cancelling tech. Not sure if it is turned on as even in very light wind I get crackling noises.
Those are the only things i have noticed so far. To be honest I am lost as to what to ask for with respect to programming changes. I don’t know what the full capabilities of what my aids can do or what is already on or off. Advice is needed. Thank you for all of your posts. I have been reading many of the posts on here. The forum has been wonderful for navigating this new experience of living with a hearing loss.
