Good morning all! I joined a few weeks ago and have been lurking. I am uploading my audiology screening and would like your comments on a recommended HA. I have moderate to severe loss I am told. I have been getting screenings for several years, and I see a gradual decline in hearing especially in the right ear.
I purchased a set of ReSound (Forte 8) at Costco about two woks ago and and I am going this morning for a check up and adjustment. I don’t think the ReSound as programmed is that helpful to me. However I do tell the difference in what I am able to hear. For instance, I am just noticing the sound of the turn signals in the car. I can hear the TV and phone better. I do not think that I am hearing soft spoken persons well enough. I had a car trip this weekend and could not make out what the person riding with me was saying enough to not make it annoying to both of us, so on the return trip, I just did not wear the HA. Being in church last week was torture. I ended up removing the HA’s. Also, the AC fan in my car was super loud, but I adjusted for wind on the app, which made me more comfortable.
I am thinking today of trying something else. I thought you might have suggestions. I will stay with Costco. I like their service and their prices.
I use an Android LG G5 so the ReSound app works just fine but of course I cannot take advantage of the streaming feature. I did not go with the Kirkland 8 because I wanted some of the features on the ReSound, such as the finding GPS feature. I thought they both sounded about the same when I tried them out. This morning in the forum I read about Brio 3 R_C. So I am looking for advice here on whether another HA brand might be better for me or whether to try the ReSounds a little longer. If I keep what I have, I may end up changing my phone. I would hate to do that as I am an Android fangirl. I use an iPad and have had an iPhone, but switched to Android. Thanks.
OK. I just got a message that new users can not upload attachments???
Now my report is posted. Thanks for the help in getting that done.
