I am having a problem with my aids. I use program 1 and they sound fine, however, if I remove the right one the volume in the left one drops too low to hear very well. This means I could never use the right aid as a stand alone if I had to. I know the right one transmits sound to the left one as my right ear hearing is much worse than the left.
It seems to me that the volume in the left aid should be loud enough for me to hear without the right aid transmitting sound to the left aid.
I called the Costco audiologist as he is 60 miles away. He had me change to the second program and that fixed the problem. He said that is how the aids are designed to work. I find that hard to believe. In program 1, which I prefer, if someone is sitting on my left, the aid will not pick up and amplify the sound. I will be hearing the sound picked up by the right aid and transmitted to the left aid. I cannot believe they were designed to work that way. Basically the audiologist is saying I cannot use program 1.
Can anyone tell me if their aids work the same? Thanks
