Thread: Do hearing companies still make analog?

  1. #21


    Just about any digital aid can be programmed to mimic an analog aid. You just have to ask for it, but I wouldn’t recommend it.

    The kitchen sounds are too loud because during the intelligibility phase of testing these gain levels were set at what was required for you to comprehend speech. Unfortunately kitchen sounds fall in that same range.

    You have had your aids tuned 3X more than most, Could your UCL levels be set to high. Remember its uncomfortable level not painful level. If the UCL is set by real ear measurement, it will set the limits of the aids in 500hz increments.

    Your audiogram is fairly flat; using audio compression will have a minimal impact and will affect your hearing experience.

    If you’re looking for a new audi for your Starkey aids I would start at
