I am working with audiologist to trial latest new technology hearing aids that will improve my hearing from old HAs. I first trialed Starkey Picasso IIC (latest model) and really liked sound quality and improved my hearing capability significantly. Since I wanted to trial few more options as comparison, I trialed Signia Pure Charge and Go and Phonak Audeo Marvel (both BTE). I had issue with keeping receiver in the canal for Signia so decided not to go with them. On Phonak, fitting was good, however, I noticed that I did not see good sound quality when used autosense setting in the app. However, when I changed setting on the app, it improved sound quality. Anyway, I decided to go back to Starkey IIC since I did like the sound quality and also they were really discreet in design. However, when my audiologist ordered new Starkey IIC - I realized sound quality was not the same as I trialed first time. I asked audiologist to increase volume level and sound quality is still not good. I have trialed them for few more days now and I still struggle in conversations and my brain has work harder for listening. I did ask audilogist to see if any settings has changed or for any reason HA are not set up according my audiogram. She seems confident that settings are fine. I am little frustrated now. Does anyone has any suggestion on how to fix this problem? Or anything similar they encountered in the past? Do I need to go to different audiologist? I feel that my audiologist has missed something in programming these HA and but not sure how can I tell her that without coming across rude. I also say this because Phonak hearing aids at Autosense setting did not improve my hearing much. I had manually adjust program to hear better. I spent so much money on these HAs and I am hoping that I can atleast get better sound quality so that I don’t struggle hearing. I have mild to moderate hearing loss in one hear and moderate to severe hearing loss on other ear. Thank you for your attention.
