I’m asking for specifics for #2 & #3 and general comments on the others. I don’t know if I should list everything in this post or break it up so please tell me if I need to do anything different.
Had a visit with a new (to me) Audi yesterday. He has been in the business a long time and certified by Phonak. I was impressed and he took quite a bit of time with me.
Note: I have iPFG 2.6 installed so I can poke around but do NOT have any of the cables or boxes. I don’t want to program but want to be involved a little. E.g.; See #2 & #3 - he didn’t know where in iPFG to set these.
He looked at my HI and immediately pointed out problems with my ear molds. He said the holes into the ear canal were to small, that by opening them up sounds would be more natural and less tinny. He was right.
He isn’t sure about program settings i want for Zoom Control and Phone-Duo. I want the mic off for the off ear, and sound from the on-ear to both ears. His uncertantity was if that would uncouple the QuickSync between the ears. He also wasn’t sure where to set that on iPFG 2.6. Can you give me a guide?
I wanted the iCOM speaker set as is but lower the volume of the iCOM Mic. People complain about my voice and ambient sounds being too loud. He wasn’t sure how to set that in iPFG also. Can you give me a guide? I discovered a setting under Pgm Options / Easy Bluetooth / Microphone Attenuation that looks like it might do something. Is this what controls microphone sensitivity on the iCOM? If so which way is down?
I was impressed that he looked things over, asked questions and knew what settings to tweak for the Phonak generally. I told him I cannot tell a difference in the voice in noise and music programs and he said that with my loss it is very minor and suggested taking them out, leaving only Auto and Zoom. He demonstrated it with the graphs with multiple lines, moving only a small amount and only a limited area. If my loss was more in the lower frequencies it would make more of a difference.
I asked about the Sound Relax feature that is supposed to chop off loud sounds at some point. My testing audi did not set a pain threshold like one did a while back, so how does Sound Relax know where to chop it off, or does it really do anything?
I could go on but help with any part of this will be helpfull.
