Thanks for the comments, sorry, should have given more background, I’d first gotten aids while in the Army about 25 years ago, and have had 8 different sets, now, six from VA, the last two were Resound Linx2. First I had the ITC with size 312 battery, but problems with them not talking to each other, and BT streaming very spotty (VA audi was told that some people’s heads are too fat (thick) or have too much water and that attenuates the ITC’s signal, due to the smaller battery), was given the RIC with size 13 battery last November, and have been back for six times to get things right. So, am pretty used to wearing them, and have tried to get them tuned right (and, agree…takes several months and visits to get things right). I’ve searched with Google and in this Forum to get info to give to my audi, and, she’s been nice enough to try things I suggest (I have been lucky in that I also work for VA in IT, so am able to both talk to them as well as understand the technical side of things).
But, no matter what I describe to them and how they adjust things, still having issues with noisy situations and wife saying I talk too loud (which…she’s not often said before, so, seems more an issue with the current aids and adjustments).
I was able to get the latest Aventa software and purchase an AirLink II, took the online courses on Aventa and Linx2, so…figured I could do at least a fair job at doing some slight tweaks as I encounter the issues–nothing major, and, at the least, will gain an understanding of what needs to be done so that I can let my audi know.
I’m not approaching this lightly, or blindly, and have already saved my current settings so that I can restore them back if any changes cause an issue. I’m assuming as long as I go slowly, and make only small, incremental changes to certain areas, and restore the settings back, that I wouldn’t cause any problems with the aids or VA?
