I’m trying out the Oticon Sumo and I’m experiencing compression in speech (sounds like my voice and others’ have a very bad cold LOL) and other sounds like driving (can’t hear cars from inside) Also, some high frequency sounds would trigger noise reduction (even speech!)
With the telecoil, I hear a sound similiar to machines that masks noises. a buzzy, windy sound? it makes it slightly difficult to hear on the phone or listen to music via headphones. Can my audiologist fix that problem?
I love the OS for its power, but I do wish there’s better sound quality…just about every digital hearing aids I’ve tried over the years sounds ‘muffled’ and yet I just don’t understand why audiologists raved about ‘great’ sound quality when they never bothered to listen to the hearing aids. That’s adding insult to an injury IMO (small rant)
well, enough ranting… I need to know what I can tell my audi when I go in Monday (4/7) for more tweaking of the OS. Oh yeah…I’ve severe/profound loss in both ears but I wear HA in my left ear (my ‘better’ ear) I don’t have my audiogram at hand. And my old HA is Phonak Supero PPCL4 and if the OS don’t work out my audi will have me go back to a better Phonak Supero.
