For years I have not been satisfied with the performance of my hearing aids…correction - maybe during the first few years but then my hearing declined. In my right ear I have a cochlear implant and in my left a h/a. I was never informed that I had low frequency hearing loss mind you I never asked. I would go and have my h/a adjusted but was never satisfied with the results. At last the penny has dropped…low frequency hearing loss is a different ball game.
My question is:- when it comes to adjusting for low frequency loss is it necessary to have less amplification in the low frequencies and more amplification in the high frequencies? I hope someone will clarify this for me just in case I cannot find an audiologist who is familiar with this problem so as to give direction.
I am actually relieved to know what the problem is and this answers a lot of questions so I hope I can find an audiologist who can help.
My history: Wore hearing aids for 15 years. My cochlear was activated 8 months ago. I have meneieres disease which of course is linked with tinnitus, vertigo and fluctuating hearing…all of which I have.
