I’ve just been told I need hearing aids. Which is no surprise as I’ve known I’ve had hearing loss for 40 odd years. The ENT Dr I’ve been seeing never thought I needed HA, but I have to wonder if something could have been done to preserve my hearing years ago. It’s been suggested that “Siemens Pure 7mi RIC BTE” is the model that would benefit me the most, or perhaps the Siemens Pure 5mi RIC BTE.
Having not ever had aids before I’m after some advise. The audiologist suggested moulds that I can still hear around as opposed to those that fully occlude the aural canal. Can anyone offer any helpful suggestions here to help me decide which would the better unit for me please?
They are going to give me a trial day to see if the 5mi or 7mi suites me better.
Has anyone had any experience of a Siemens 7mi? Oe 5 mi? Or other similar brands as a comparison please? I wasn’t shown any other brands at all.
The Audiologists was not sure if I would be better with 1 or 2 aids due to the amount of hearing loss in my left ear. They have given me a 55 day refund option if I don’t consider the left ear is benefitting from the HA.
Can anyone offer any suggestions as to the type of moulds and what device I would benefit from most please.
