and what I mean by that is "how much volume play, adjustment or upside does one have when finally setting software levels on new HA’s. Personally I like to know “say on a scale of one to ten” what my current aids are set at so I know how much upward adjustment aids can handle if I lose more hearing. So if level is one is lowest level of HA volume setting and level ten highest (maxed out), should’t an Audi be able to tell me what my current volume range setting is and how much (upward adjustment) I have left before I max out HA volume?
Buying a HA is some what challenging from a “high tech” standpoint but no one likes to be in the dark as far as buying HA’s and not knowing if HA volume adjustment level is low, medium or high and if current setting can be, or can’t be bumped up over a number of years. In plain English - I hate to buy a HA that I thought would last a long time only to find out I bought a Widex, Phonak, Resound that was at its “software limits” at time to purchase, versus no where near its software limits from day one of use.
