Hi, first time poster, long time lurker. I am looking in to getting new hearing aids and I am looking for some recommendations(I know there is no “one size fits all” aid), I currently have Unitron wi-fi mic BTE hearing aids and although I am satisfied with them, I think it is time for an upgrade since they are 6-7 years old!
One of the things I do dislike about my current hearing aids though is the inability to wear regular headphones with them without getting feedback or not being able to position them to hear well enough (for exampe: ADL at movietheaters, I have to position them akwardly for my aids to pick up sound and they subsquently wont stay on my face or if position them a certain way I get feedback). Therefore I’ve been looking into smaller hearing aids such as CIC or Half-Shell or Full-Shell but I don’t know if they would be appropriate for my loss. I also don’t like the tight plugged up feeling I get from the ear molds.
I’ve looked the Unitron Fuse and while they fit my criteria, the only offer a small gain which I’m afraid won’t be enough for my hearing loss.
I’ve attached my latest 2 hearing tests (sorry I don’t know how to represent my loss with DB numbers like I’ve many do so If someone wanted to do that for me it would be much appreciated) and I am getting a new one next Tuesday.
Any recommendations or advice you can offer would again be much appreciated!. I thank you for taking time to read this!
