Newbie here. I’m just getting ready for retirement at 59 and thought I would get an audiology test at Costco in case I need to leverage my companies health benefits. Went to Costco and was surprised that I have moderate to severe hearing loss in the high frequencies.
Somewhat in denial but decided to get the Kirkland HS10 to test if the HA’s make any difference. I don’t have any problems in normal conversations but do struggle in crowded settings which is not very often. My fitting is in a couple of weeks but thought I would post here for feedback.
From what I’ve read, HA’s should be worn constantly as if you use them for situational, your brain has to relearn the audio. Based on the results of my test, if I use the HA’s for crowded settings, does that make sense as lower frequencies are fine?
I guess I’ll find out the difference in a couple of weeks when I go for my fitting. Does it make sense to go for a second opinion or are these test usually pretty accurate.
WRS R-96% @ 55dB, L-96%*55dB Think this is good?
I usually ask for the TV volume to be turned down however do notice the radio volume in the car is a bit loud than my wife likes.
