First time poster here. I am past 70 yo, have had two different sets of HA, been mostly dissatisfied with both of them (first was Rexton CIC, second pair was ReSound OTE). I have been reading the threads and not sure of all the acronyms, but I think OTE = Over The Ear, right?
Anyway, the problem with both sets of HAs was that I couldn’t keep them in for more than an hour or two without experiencing itchiness and a feeling that my ears were “sweating” inside. This happened even after I went away from the CIC to the ReSound.
And, off topic, but now I can’t find my last pair of HAs! They have to be misplaced somewhere in my house, but, try as I might, they remain lost! …There goes around $2 grand …
I tried Eargene for a while with my last set of HAs, but it didn’t seem to give me much relief.
If and when I get another set, I may try some of the suggestions in this thread. I am hoping that the technology has improved enough since my last purchased set (2010) that I might be able to wear the next set.
