New to the forum, and could not find anyone with a similar experience, so here is my question:
I experienced Sudden Hearing Loss about 3 years ago. Prior to that, I had pretty much equal “reverse slope” hearing loss profiles in both ears (yes, those are not typos in my signature!). But now my left ear drops off after about 3kHz. This creates a peak at that frequencey.
I want to get a single aid that will simply equalize my left ear to equal my right ear, and would like to restore my left ear high frequency response up to 8 or 10kHz, at least to equal my right. Also, I would like to be able to program the aid myself, as I am an electrical engineer with audio and computer experience.
Any suggestions from anyone? It seems that most aids drop off around 6kHz, so I would need one with better response than that, and also the ability to fine tune the equalization to avoid created a peak at 3kHz.
