Hyperacusis management

The audi at the ENT said blocking sound on the deaf side can make it worse.
My husband has a deep/loud voice and can’t sit next to me on the sofa as it is painful when he talks I have a closed dome on my deaf side with the microphone for the BiCROSS . If what she says is possible I wonder if I should switch to open on the mic side? Right now I cover my ear when he talks on that side and he sits on my other side on the sofa
Thoughts?

this is so narrowly…YOU… You are going to have to simply try it and see… Let us know your experience. As with anything hearing related. If it causes pain, stop.
