    For all that Oticon talks about "brain hearing", the Opn sound is highly, highly processed.

    Bluejay, the opn algorithm uses modulation rate to detect near vs far speech and it tries its best to...

    That's an interesting auditory illusion. I wonder it it would be maintained longterm.

    I'm surprised no manufacturer has come out with a hearing aid/CROS combo yet, to maintain stimulation of the...

    I responded to this this morning and it was lost to the internet gremlins, so now I have to try to remember what I wrote.

    If you have Meniere's as you say in your first post (which is an *if*,...

    Interaural time difference needs to be between two ears. Having a time delay between a sound hitting one ear and then hitting the same ear again would not be used for localization. The brain would...

    If you took a bunch of 15 year olds with perfect hearing, on average their threshold at each pitch would be 0 dB HL. Across the field, 20 dB HL is generally considered "normal". So you've got normal...

    The Brio2 is fine. If you've been living with that level of loss unaided for a long time, then this may not be a smooth journey for you. Find an audiologist you trust who will help you to adapt to...

    I agree. What's the disagreement? I don't know where this guy lives. In some places it can be hard to get *two* implants, so I suggested the aid for the other ear. I don't know how long he has to...

    If you feel that you are still getting significant benefit out of the amplified bad ear, then it's not time for a CROS.

    Matching your tinnitus won't affect a hearing aid fitting much unless you have tonal tinnitus and are using a notched-therapy approach, which was only recently instigated by siemens (but can be...

    As far as hearing aids go, if you're looking for something jazzy I am a big fan of the gold or the matte red that are available for the Signia pures. Because they are RICs they will be extra flexible...

    Chiropractics is not an evidence based practice. It is generally mysticism. There is some evidence that it can help alleviate back pain, but the evidence is mixed. Any claims beyond that are...

    A good rule of thumb with chiropractors is just to assume it's all BS.

    It would be interesting to know the cause. Yes to ENT. Yes to cochlear implants. If you can't get bilateral implants and want a hearing aid for the other ear, or need new hearing aids in the interim,...

    All people with significant hearing loss have recruitment. Recruitment just describes one of the unavoidable physical consequences of outter hair cell damage. If tgh is actively avoiding all sounds...

    It is possible that your earplugs have exacerbated your tinnitus, yes, but I'd tend to point my finger at stress and/or worsening hearing loss first. That being said, if you could sleep without the...

    They've been regenerating hair cells in mouse cochleas for quite a few years now. I wish them speed, but there are probably a lot of years to go.

    One of the great mysteries of audiology.

    You could try adding the retention tails first. Sometimes they are enough. If not, go to custom tips.

    ...No, not really. Open fits are generally important for people who have normal hearing at the low frequencies, which you do not.

    But if you are in custom tips, they probably closed up the vents a...

    I don't know Dr. McKenna.

    That is consistent with my undertanding. There's also a fairly prevalent myth that otosclerosis is make worse by pregnancy, but there's no good science to back it up.

    Yes, very much so. Both psychological and physical stress will make tinnitus louder. Tinnitus is largely a brain sound, not an ear sound. Cut through the auditory nerve and in more than half of...

    Real-ear measures with a speech stimulus are preferred practice. Aided audiogram at least provides some sort of verification. Not doing these things is a cop-out. Think of how long it took you to...
