Hoping to keep a running list of tips that have worked for low frequency hearing loss/RSHL. Some of what’s worked for me is what I learned from https://vimeo.com/59940134
I’ve been self programming for the past 4-5 years, here’s what’s worked for me.
-for streaming phone calls: adjust phone call to maximum volume and external mic to lowest setting.
-low frequencies to 10-18 dB max for soft sounds
-above 2000 hz, at least 10-15 dB gain
-for mask program, add 8-10 dB above 2k for soft sounds and 4-5 for mid sounds. No adjustment for loud.
-for tv, I use a Roku streaming stick for all my televisions. I then connect my iPhone to the Roku remote app and can stream whatever I watch to my aids.
-for work, I do a lot of Skype/teams calls and web conferences. Using a streamer to connect my aids to my work computer has been invaluable. I work with folks all over the country and some I’ve never met in person. People don’t even know I’m hoh unless they’ve met me or I’ve disclosed my loss.
-for social gatherings in noisy places (pre/post Covid), a partner mic is a must.
-closed domes - double vented
