My first hearing aid is a Phonak micro eleva. I have had it for three weeks. Voices, including mine sound tinney and distracting. I pointed this out to my audiologist in my first return visit yesterday and the audi said the sound was to be expected and I would get use to the sound of it eventually. I asked if the audi could fine tune for response to certain frequencies and she said fine tuning would not be a good idea, but she would reduce the volume in the ofending ear (left ear).
From what I have read on-line, the micro Eleva should be able to be fine tuned to fix the tinney sound using Phonak software that my audi should have. I am thinking of returning the hearing aid since I don’t think the audi is really responding to my needs.
Can and should the Phonak be fine tuned by my Audi or is tinney sound to be lived with? Your thoughts and experiences welcomed.
