I have been scheduled for a VA hearing aid test in October. I currently have Oticon BTE OPN 1’s. I have ski slope hearing loss.
I moved from Widex to Oticon. I am 70 and no longer can afford the high expense of top of the line HA’s, which is the reason for going to the VA.
I have difficulty understanding speech in any kind of noisy environment. Also have a problem understanding speech in quiet places such as doctors offices.
My understanding is that the VA recently dropped Widex but still carries all the other top tier manufacturers.
Which VA hearing aids would be best suited for my type of loss?
