I am new to hearing aids, just got fitted with a Widex AIKIA CIC 4 days ago.
I do not know what to expect so i need some advice.
I definitely like it but it generates some distortion in semi loud levels.
At low levels the sound is clear and comfortable.
At high levels (loud noise, loud music) i can sense that it shouts its self down.
My problem is at medium to high level sound.
For Example, like the case when a person is talking to a group and you are sitting next to him, or when i myself speak loud top a group. In those cases the volume does not adjust (at least noticeably) but distortion is produced. It sounds like a stereo system just before the amplifier burns out. It plays, but sound is distorted.
Is this something to be expected? Is it a problem with the specific hearing aid so i need to have it repaired or replaced?
