Ideally, you should add your audiogram to your profile and write down your word recognition score in quiet and noise.
And how that WRS is with aids compared with that testing headphones.
If you don’t have any of it, then, how is your understanding of speech on tv, do you use some tv connector device to directly stream to your aids, how is understanding then?
To me, direct streaming from source to aids, tv, phone and also using additional mic that streams into my aids was a game changer for me. But if someone told me earlier that those devices exist for my old HA I might be happier back then also.
But in general, if HAs are setup properly, I doubt you’ll get any difference in quiet with both old and new ones. Features comes into the game with more complex environments. So, what are environments you need them for, is the first thing you need to get the answers.
Also, understanding happens in brain, hearing in ears, and if your ears/nerves are damaged, there’s only so much HA can do anyway.
But, first share whatever you know about your hearing loss and numbers you have from your exams, and what are the issues you’d like to solve.
And don’t forget, you don’t have to commit to buy in order to test the HAs
But having those answers will definitely help you more in looking what makes sense to test.
