It’s been 8 months since I bought my pair of Phonak P90 PRTs and am throwing in the towel. I live in an older home with wooden floors throughout the house. The sound I hear is similar to what I imagine would be like walking on egg shells but much, much louder. My brain has not adjusted to the sound and no matter what the audiologist does it won’t go away.
The hair cells in the cochlea of my left ear were severely damaged years ago when hunting with my friends. Standing next to the muzzle of a 12 gauge shotgun when it is discharged is not recommended. There is not much the audiologist can do about this ear.
I won’t be wearing them any longer with the exception of having Alexa read books to me streamed through the aids while sitting in my big comfortable chair; much nicer than sweaty headphones or those earbud thingys. I’ll stop by from time to time to see if there are any new developments that you all might be discussing.
