Hi Matthew. No I do not self tune yet (dispenser in training), but I do spend a lot of time bothering my dispenser and she likes a challenge so its all good. I just simply pay attention to her software behavior and read the options in there and then ask questions about the features.
Did you know there’s a lot of subcategories in basic settings? For example say you select speech and noise or maybe say music-you will find more selections in a drop down menu applied to that speech and noise or music to specific enviroments that might meet your needs. There’s so many there it’s too much to list here. Ask your dispenser to show you this.
I spend a good deal of time explanation specific details I notice in my daily life in visual detail that would be easy for a hearing person to sort of experience from my end I suppose. . You have to be really aware of your hearing and pay attention. It’s tiresome at times I know
As of late, I have noticed automatic gains and suppressions like in a form of a wave. It is really annoying and I also notice that this event occurs in several days or hours after the new fitting. That is why I sent this repair out. Problem is gone for now. Phonak states replacement of internal electronics. As I said, it’s a durability issue.
This has happened in 3 results from fittings so far (that wave i mentioned of gains and fades…aid will also whistle no matter how you program it). Now that I have my second aid out for repairs, I am wearing the Naida 3 as backup, I am finding the 3 outperforming the 9 (in terms of overall volume gains and clarity).
For last week’s repaired hearing aid experience in a nutshell is that people have said this week that I am not yelling anymore. I myself can easily understand personal conversations, radio and television a lot more (with less actual speaker volume too).
In the course of about 1 1/2 years, I have had approx 20 programming fittings done for all models I own. Take time finding that golden spot. Sometimes that golden spot could trick you and it could mean it is that data logging confusing you, so try turning it off and see what happens. It isn’t easy I know, but it is sure worth it.
I will follow up when I am wearing all repaired Naida 9’s only with no data logging and no Naida 3 in either ear to make a final conclusion. There is something definitely interesting going on here.
