IM NOT FAMILIAR WITH DOMES. I know ear molds that my daughter USED TO WEAR. they were expensive ad looked gross after a year or so.
I think the recent HA i had used some type of DOME. but, it looked like like ear bud from my phone’s ear phone thing.
It lets a lot of UNAMPLIFIED sound into my ear. I would think that is better. but am guessing there is a situation/time and place were those might not be best.
I did see a different audiologist, shortly after getting the phonak, and he said I was ‘borderline’ as to needing those ear mold type of ear thingy.
sorry. just not sure how to reference / call them…
Im not sure if those are out-dated, or old school, or what how when to use them or not.
I do know when I was using the PHONAK, and STREAMING TV, if I covered my ear canal, things sounded better from the tv.
the PHONAK app had an adjustment to blend AMBIENT sound with the amplifed sound…cause i was having issues not hearing my phone ring or notifications, or if someone was knocking on my door, or any other outside sounds…
Ideally I would was some type of custom program, (if possible) to have one HA stream, and the other, not stream, or blend the second HA to mix streaming with ambient, but one HA just solely streaming.
At least, I think it might be better. not sure till I try. but I was told it wasnt possible, (by the audiologist)
anyways, thanks again for the awesome info
