Today I tested a second hearing aid brand called Starky and it was way too loud!Earbleed   It had an echo to it and when I listened to my audiologist her voice was much heavier than what I was used to.  It also had some underwater sound or as if she had a cold.  My voice sounded muffled as well.  

The first brand I tested was the Phonak and that sounded distance, not very clear, and definitely sounded like her voice was in underwater.  There should have been bubbles coming out of her mouth!  Love Bubbles Blue (Free) 

I know I had tried the Oction brand back in 2008 and that was very strange!  I was able to hear speech in the distance but not much, and people who were talking next to me sounded very muffled.  I also was hearing water draining down its long drain!  Dude that's a long drain!  

I noticed that its possible that the new hearing aids are trying to pull all the sounds into a monotone medium level if you can picture what I mean.  It's pulling the higher sounds deeper than it really is.  Which might be helpful in speech but not the simple appreciation of the variety of sounds such as in music.  

I am hoping to try out the latest Widex brand at another hearing aid place and see how that compares.  

I currently use the Senso Widex hearing aids which is one of the first digital hearing aids they rolled out and its possible they are not making or repairing them anymore.  They had served me well I am able to hear a lot with it such as music, some speech (with lip reading) and background noises.  :music: :droplet: Water drip emoti Black Bunny hop  cute bunny  lol

According to my audiologist it is possible that I simply have to let my brain to get use to the new sounds and adjust to it.  And how each hearing aid brand will be different.  

I sure wish to be able to hear on the phone or the radio but I think with the degree of my hearing loss it is just not possible.  Unless I have visual help, lip reading, captioning, and of course sign language.
