I’ve been using HAs for a few month’s now and I’ve adjusted pretty well to everything but the loud talkers. It seems HAs should have some sort of leveling filter that would lower the sound of voices along with loud noise. I’ve only tried two brands and both do a poor job with extremely loud voices. Widex does real good with sudden loud noise but not with loud voices.
I know with my video editor SW I can apply a leveling filter to the audio of a clip with speech and it will do a descent job of lowering louder voices. Raising soft voices not so good.
Are HAs processing power just not fast enough to handle this task, or are they, and I need to talk to my audi about it? Does anyone else have a problem with it? It could be I’m just to sensitive to it too. Even before HAs, for the past 12 years I have been sensitive to loud sounds.
Maybe it’s just meant for the HA wearer to reach up and manually turn down loud voices.
