Right now I am trying out a Seimens Cielo 2S and have a been having trouble with hearing in a crowded room and singing (I sing Tenor in a Barbershop Chorus). When the Audiologist fixes one problem the other seems to get worse. I do have three programs and one is for singing, but I am having a hard trying to explain to her what I need in the program. I am NOT hearing myself sing, everyone around me is really loud. I am so frustrated, I don’t have a clue on what to do and how to explain it to the Audiologist.
I have a high frequency loss in my right ear beginning at 4000Hz and my left ear has a profound loss across the board.
She has made a lot of adjustments, but she has not hit the nail on the head yet. The aid is a BTE with a half shell mold. The Audiologist has tried to fit me with an open fit, but was not successful (I have very small canals and bend that makes an open fit more difficult).
What is the best way for me to go at this point? BTW, I have tried the BI-CROS. Should I be looking at another aid or is there some adjustment she should be making?
