Just back from picking up my Phonak Audeo Smart IX pair from the VA in Houston. It’s early days of course, but so far I am delighted with the equipment functions, and sounds heard. There are lots of high frequency things I had forgotten about. The metallic watchband I wear makes noises when I bump it on the table. The car door closing makes a much more complex noise this afternoon that it did just this morning with the old analogs.
I was given a hard copy of my settings, but couldn’t get an electronic copy of the settings because of VA data security concerns. Hooking a thumb drive to the computers in the VA offices causes the computer security folks to appear. No sweat it will just take a few minutes to tweak the recommended settings for my loss over to what we ended up with today.
I was a little anxious after some of the negative comments from people who could not be happy with the change from analog to digital aids. No problems. Once again, early, but I doubt I will be looking for the hardware to carry out my own programming.
I’m surprised at some of the noises coming from this laptop keyboard.
