First off… THANK YOU TO ALL THAT ANSWERED MY EARLIER QUESTION, AND FOLLOW UP QUESTIONS. That discussion ended up being much longer then I thought, cause I kept adding more and more questions. Im sure it made it difficult to read and follow by others who might have come in late to that discussion. I will do my best to keep this discussion more on topic and easier to read. I HOPE.
Anyways, I returned the original hearing aids to the audiologist I didnt like/trust. They returned my money within a week. (less then, as it was a weekend).
I had already made an appt to see a different audi but had to delay it, (I had discovered more skin cancer in my ear, (actually on the physical ear itself, just on the outer face, not the side that faces the skull).
Anyways, I had to have it removed and they would not have been able to test or wear headset for the testing, so I saw the audi today. I have been without HA for about 2-3 weeks. and MISSED THEM. even though the last pair wasnt adjusted properly. in fact, the last adjustment was HORRIBLE.
Anyways, I wanted an Audi that did REM. This was the only place within 25 miles, (near Los Angeles). Im still concerned about if REM is so great, why is there only one place in a community of hundred+ audiologist
Anyways, I digress, again. They explained they dont use the REM until the HA are dialed up to 100% which makes sense.
anyways, the other difference between this place and the other is, I didnt need to pay anything for my TRIAL period.wow.
They were more INFORMED about the operations of the PHONAK MARVEL.
The first fitting/adjustment is already better then my experience with my first Audi, They did turn the HA response to around 90% cause they knew I had already used hearing aids just 2 weeks ago. And I am already liking this adjustment.
I also learned that what I thought and what you all told me, PHONAK does in fact have manual over-ride of programs. PHONAK even has a program called MUSIC.
perfect. that was my main complaint/gripe. I told the first AUDI that the music I listen to was sounding sounded too tinny, or how i couldnt hear some mid-range… And all the first Audi did was adjust some of the ‘channels’. And like I thought, those channels are like an EQUILIZER on my old stereo. and the MARVEL M30 only had a small range of adjustments. Im assuming she wanted to have less amplification to the low range, (cause my hearing isnt as bad at the low range), but because the M30 had a small number of channels, it also used less amplification on some of the lower MID RANGE sounds too.
ANYWAYS. TO MY QUESTION… (After I said I would keep this more brief and to the point. hehehehehehehe).
the Audiologist said she added the MUSIC program to my hearing aids. HOW DO i SELECT that program? Which button, how long?
see. i could have made this so much shorter…
