I am fed up already! 40 mins drive one way and I had to go there TWICE to get this done. WHY does everything have to be a major ordeal?
Had the hearing test. I told her the man talking, on the left ear, it needed to be louder, as I couldn’t hear him well at all. She said my left ear is worse than it was and worse than the right ear. I asked what the hearing aid receivers would be, M, P or HP? She said the KS9s don’t come that way, they are a different system. Funny, a few hours later my paperwork clearly shows both are M receivers.
@Sierra, I will post my new audiogram. Based on this, she said my left ear is not bad enough to need a P receiver and she would not sell me one. (When I posted last months audiogram, you had suggested my right ear needs an M receiver and left ear needs either a P or an HP). So the order is with both ears on an M receiver. Left ear, everyone sounds like they are down a well. Edit: I have just posted my audiogram. My printout does not even show my word recognition scores. I did take that test. She didn’t do nearly as much testing as the audiologist I saw last month though.
Edit again: The audiogram showing appears to be today’s. But the word recognition scores are from last month, as I do not have any from today’s test.
I walked around the store ‘testing them out’ for about 15 minutes. I told her background noise was too loud. She said background noise was already set as damped as it could go, so I will just have to get used to it.
My old Rexton had separate programs for in a restaurant, listening to music. She said there are no programs on this, it is all automatic.
She said this one is nano coated inside and I do not need a dryer unless I sweat a lot or live in a humid climate; then she said: New Hampshire is not humid. I can order one for an extra $40. From reading on here, seemed to me you all recommend it? I can buy it when I got get the hearing aids in 2 weeks.
The wall poster said the KS9 comes in 5 colors. She said I can get the bronze color like the demos in a week. If I want any other color it will take 3 weeks to come in. She thought the bronze was a good match. I never got to see the other colors. A few hours later, when we finally did paperwork, she can’t get me in for the next step for 2 weeks anyway!
