I am thankful for the existence of this forum and for the posts of the whole community.
As a new user seeking answers to my peculiar concerns, I have to say that this forum is a right shot towards an empowering attitude.
At that point, please excuse my bad English.
Now, to be concrete and keep it short, I recently managed to get a Hi-Pro (needless to say that this forum was on the way) with a view to attempting HA programming.
Since this is my first post, my experience of hearing loss is as follows:
I am wearing hearing aids since age 5 (now 36 years old), and my hearing loss sightly decreased from a mild cookie bite hearing loss to a severe hearing loss (see audiogram in signature).
My story is that I am wearing ITC since age 7. Surprisingly, they did it. First, analogs, and my first digital hearing aids in 2011 (with programmable hearing aids in-between, mimicking my older aids, as far as I remember). All ITCs.
Of course, the drawback is that I am accustomed to a particular brand, possibly sound, and possibly a particular type of correction that I don’t know well, and the world is changing.
So, my feeling with respect to my situation is that I now need to gain more insight about HA fitting.
I own a pair of Siemens Nitro CIC (10A battery) I bought in 2007.
I never wore them. For diverse reasons, the fitting process interrupted, and the Nitros have never been properly fitted to me.
Now, it is possible that they cannot be fitted to me. Anyway, I would like to try programming them.
(No damage foreseen, since I otherwise have on hand a correct solution and my intention is not to substitute to my current correction, I cannot with my hearing loss, but rather to learn a few things).
I need to find the appropriate material.
- CS44 cables, which may be found on thehearingclub.com website (thank you jpeinado http://www.hearingaidforums.com/showthread.php?20753-Material-for-DIY)
- but I have concerns regarding the possibility of finding programming adapters.
These Nitros are the first generation of Siemens Nitros (this type of CIC has been launched around 2007), bought in 2007, 70/128 matrix. They work with 10A batteries.
[FONT=arial]The model on this website (https://www.bestsoundtechnology.com/pro/siemens-hearing-product-portfolio/product-archive/nitro-x01-custom/ ) requires flex connectors. thehearingclub.com only proposes programming adapter size 312 or 13.
I wonder whether suitable adapters may be found for a 10A battery Nitro CIC of the type described above?[/FONT]
Any input regarding this historical question would be appreciated.
