I would appreciate some help from forum members who are profoundly deaf or wear a cochlear implant with some residual hearing remaining in the implanted ear.
I came back from my audiologist appointment this week and to my dismay i had no word or sentence understanding even though the headphone volume was loud enough for me hear the recorded voice but i could not understand anything. I even had the audiologist turn down the volume as the recorded voice was too loud.
As an experiment i placed my iphone speaker at the bottom of the phone and pushed it deep into my most deaf ear at full volume and to surprise i can understand every word Dr Cliff Olsen was saying on his Youtube channel.
The point of this post is that i am wondering if anyone else who is profoundly deaf and had no word/sentence understanding unaided may not know that they can still get words/sentence understanding with their cell/mobile phone speaker pressed inside the ear.
Please if you can try this experiment for me. See below for the experiment and i would appreciate if you can let me know if you also have word/voice understanding even though you don’t have any when listening to a youtube video without hearing aids or cochlear device
PLEASE NOTE: ONLY USE ONE SIDE OF THE SPEAKERS NOT BOTH OTHERWISE THE SOUND WILL BECOME WEAKENED
Thanks guys and looking forward to the results you obtain.
