Hi to all. I just discovered this forum. For awhile now, my wife has been saying I have a hearing problem. A couple years back, I did have a real in office audiogram (but don’t have the record). Recently, I did an online test (which is the posted audiogram). I have noticed difficulty in hearing high pitched tones (eg., a watch alarm).
Right now, I am trying out a low priced hearing aid (Neosonic EZ). According to the product info, it is digital, 12 channel, with feedback control and three background noise modes (and other features). They say it is designed to deal with loss from 2 - 8 Khz. That seems to describe me. But the device is not “fitted” to my audiogram.
It does help. But, since I’m not used to it yet, a lot of things sound a bit loud. So, I have the volume turned down quite a ways.
My question… Am I barking up the wrong tree to consider such a device? Should I be exploring customizable devices instead?
Thanks, in advance, for your thoughts.
