I’m looking for my first HA’s and based on my research here I had a test done this morning at a local Costco. The audi seemed experienced and helpful, no sales pressure at all. Here are my test results:
HR 250 500 1K 2K 4K 8k
R 30 40 50 55 60 75
L 30 40 50 55 70 70
Not sure how to read/translate the SRT score, but the audi said for the word test I needed 95db each ear and 85db combined.
My first choice in HA’s would be IIC’s, but the audi did not think there are IIC’s out there that are powerfull enough for my loss. She will check with several manufacturers, including Phonak, and will get back to me. While I’m waiting, does any one with similar hearing loss has tried IIC’s or know of any that I should try? Brands carried by Costco would be nice, but I’m open to other sources as well. Thanks.
