Those of us with low-frequency loss/reverse slopes are a minority within a minority, aren’t we? Most of the hearing aids out there are optimized for the majority with high frequency loss. While those devices excel in processing high frequencies, the low-frequencies are not where they distinguish themselves (and those low frequencies are what we need…)
I’d like to generate a shortlist of devices/models/manufacturers that are known to do well in the low frequencies. Such a shortlist would help a reverse-sloper to be efficient in their search for a new device and help them avoid known problems, including devices/models that won’t work well for their loss (while it may work well for those with high freq loss).
May I therefore request all reverse-slopers to comment on the manufacturer, model, and design (e.g., CICs, RICs with custom molds, RICs with power/default domes, open fits, BTEs, etc.) that they found works best (or worst) for them? What manufacturer (or model or design), if any, does better than alternatives at processing low frequencies?
