So, had my new costco 8,0 aids 4 days now. Several questions. I am thankful for this forum b/c I have zero friends with hearing aids (that I know of) that I can ask
I would not describe my domes as uncomfortable (they are tulip domes), but I really have to resist the urge to yank them out a lot. I just always have the sensation they are there, it never really dissipates. Maybe with more time? I do find myself having to push in them a bit. I really wouldn’t say they’ve slipped out very much, but maybe sligthly. Does that mean the domes need to be smaller to go further in, or are they too big? I think I’m wearing 8 mm domes now.
When I am in the car, I can only hear out of my right ear with my i phone. IS that normal? If I watch a you tube video from my home, it plays in both ears. I also used GPS last night & I could only hear in my right ear & it seemed to only randomly work… I don’t know if it was giving directions & I couldn’t hear them, or if the GPS was screwed up, but have never had issues with the GPS like that before.
And now on to my dumbest question, but I don’t know how to un- pair the aids and the iphone quickly. Last night when I realized I was not getting directions from the GPS, I wanted to just turn off the feed to the iphone, so I could listen to directions in the traditional sense.
And last, would you assume that the hearing aid dispenser has not given me all the gain I’m going to get in just the first adjustment? Today was my first day trialing the aids at work and while I did notice an improvement, I still had some difficulties hearing at times. Hoping there’s still improvement coming.
