I have mild to moderate hearing loss. Invisibilitty of the hearing aid is the main concern for me. So I’m trying out hearing aids of type Invisible in the Canal (IIC) types.
So the first hearing I tried is Lyric. I tried Lyric for 3 weeks. There was itch and some pain in the beginning. But they went a way after few days. After couple of weeks, I almost forgot that I wore hearing aids. But music didn’t sound good. Almost there is no bass which is a BIG deal for me. I’m able to hear bass without HAs. My audioligist to reprgram but I didn’t see any difference.
I asked my Audi about Starkey Soundlens. She said Phonak Nano is latest one and I should try it besides Phonak is swiss company known for reliability.
She took my ear impression and got the Phonak Nanos 3 days back and I’ve started my trail. I have pain in my right ear. Besides I find my own voice hollow. I think this is occlusion. I read that IICs sit nearer to ear drum and hence no occlusion. But these Phono Nano HAs are just sitting at the entrance of my ear canal. Should they go be going little deeper like the Lyric does ?
Does Starkey Soundlens go deeper as does Lyric ? On the dummies, I see they are close to the ear drum.
