Hi my first post, I knew there is something like this for hearing aid users, Just got some new hearing aids after my hearing threshold has dropped and got tinnitus, which I think is linked, my old hearing aid is not suitable.
So I got issued these HAs, however after matching my audiogram, my hearing not as natural as it used to be or as loud, I was told to give it 5 weeks for my brain to get used to it, it has improved a little but I do think the lower volume setting needs to be upped and the sounds to be made more natural, I can’t hear background noise as I used to, i can’t hear people unless they are close to me, any suggestions.
From what I can remember from my audiogram, I am mostly in the 90db range except for high frequency where 8k is above 100 I suspect its 120db for my left ear, my right has is between 80db-95db across the range for most parts, I should have asked for a print out, didn’t think to ask.
I like to be able to increase the speech banana as well.
Any ideas chaps. hopefully you will be able to help assist and also the best terminology to use to get across what I need from the technician.
