Visiting your HCP is probably best but you can also take online hearing tests or get hearing test and/or tone generator apps for Android and iOS. That allows you to roughly test yourself what’s wrong with your HA('s) via playing a chosen frequency directly to an ear vs. streaming it to the same ear through your phone (and have your wife corroborate whether the sound is loud or not). In my case, I’ve had several left HA’s fail as far as external microphone input goes but they stream high-frequency sound just fine even after the microphone input failed.
On the crickets, I guess it depends on the time of year, how wet or dry it’s been, etc. But here in San Antonio, they can be so loud it’s so annoying that while listening to a podcast while walking, I turn off my external mics just so I can adequately hear the streamed sound not overwhelmed by chirping. Hopefully, your high-frequency hearing can be well restored by adequate gain adjustment or frequency lowering, if necessary.
