Week three of my 30-day trial for my new HAs.
I hate them. Hate, hate, hate. :mad:
Audie gave me 10 mm closed domes and changed the feedback setting from fast to standard, and ran a feedback test. She said that the test indicated that the HAs produced no feedback.
Well, I say otherwise. :mad:
Squeak. Whistle. Squeak. Whistle. In program 1. In program 2. Listening to music. Talking on the phone. Sniffing (yes, sniffing). Clicking on a mouse produces a squeak, as does my office chair. First one ear, then the other. Yes, it’s intermittent (my audie says that the same sound should always feedback, but I haven’t found that to be the case.) The HAs will work fine for several hours, and then they start to squeak and whistle.
Today, I got feedback from the right HA in response to the beep when I changed from program 2 to 1. How about that, folks, a HA that produces its own feedback! HOW much did I pay for these things???
I think I’ve given the audie enough time to fix this; in fact, I’m wondering if they were defective out of the box.
Now I have to start from scratch. I definitely don’t want another Siemens instrument, and frankly, I’m afraid to get another pair of BTEs. So, I guess it’s back to CICs for me.
What a disappointing experience this has been.
