> If you have the newer aids, AH aids have a problem with the ADRO- it is slow and too aggressive.
Something sure is quite wrong!
> People who have large losses need a more linear type aid setting- that is, in the case of ADRO, all three lines close to each other, no more than 8 db between the middle and the top line.
Just did a new Audiogram. Shows my current loss is 10-15dB more loss than previous 50dB. Waiting for Audiogram in mail.. Do not ask why I do not have with me now.
> The over all curve should be a bit flat with a rise at 3K.
> If you have the wax guard, pull it out- it east up treble and causes occlusion. The aids sound better without it. But you'll have to be vigilant about keeping your aids clean.
I wear BTE, no wax guard I think.
> You can't set your aids with computer speakers - it's a waste of time. You need good quality speakers and real world sound levels to do it.
Lacking good speakers, I must use my wife's voice to set hearing.
Major problem needs solving is her voice sounds good when my aids are connected by cables to programmer and software is running. Her voice sounds much worse (muffled and fizzy) when cables are disconnected and aids are reset.
AH says "Send ADROs back, we will try to duplicate".
AH's service department is not skilled at diagnosing or repairing has been my experience. So I am reluctant to send my ADROs to AH.
