First of all let me say “thank you” to all the folks on this forum. I visited here a lot over the past few weeks since I found out I would need hearing aids, and the information here has been very helpful.
I received my Siemens Cielo II open ear aids today, and have been playing around with them all evening. They came with a remote, and I’m finding that at the volume level that the manual refers to as “normal,” I get a lot of feedback (from the TV, even from the computer keyboard!). I can turn it down and find a level with no feedback, and the level still seems to provide a good level of boost, but I’m wondering…is this something I should be concerned about?
I guess I’m a little clueless about feedback. If I can’t use the hearing aids at what the company calls “normal” volume level, does that mean they’re calibrated incorrectly, or is it just a function of my particular level of hearing loss?
Just curious. Thanks again for all the help you guys give on this forum!
