Thread: Super Power Or Power Aids Needed?

  1. Default Super Power Or Power Aids Needed?

    Wanted to know for my hearing loss; Would I need a pair of Super Power aids or just a pair of Power aids? Recent hearing test is below..

    Right now I'm wearing a spare pair of old Phonak Super Power aids that I bought on ebay and had a local place program.

    Thanks

    That's an unusual loss. How'd it happen?

    You could fit the left with a standard receiver, but you need a super power for the right. It could be fit with a power, but you'd be riding the edge a bit.

    Had two cholesteatoma surgeries and a stapedectomy operation and have a Shea inplant. This was all done in my Right ear.

    I think getting a pair of Super power aids would be the best bet just to make sure I have the power later if need be. I'm thinking a pair would be better instead of two different aids.

    What kind of implant?

    Yeah, if any of that right ear is conductive, which I'm guessing it is, you'll want the extra power.

    How confident are you with the result from the right? Without a bone conduction level and knowing the masking criteria this result could be meaningless.

    Note that there's almost always 35dB between the results? Ever wondered why?

    I have Shea prosthesis was implanted in my Right ear.

    I think I will make sure to get a pair of SuperPower BTE's. I have used a different pairs of RIC aids but have had trouble with them; so thinking the best route to take is with a pair of BTE's. Instead of having a pair of two different aids I think a pair of them would be better.

    I'm very confident in the results. Test was given a hospital. Why is there a 35dB difference? If I find the test I will post a scan of it...

    Thanks

    Right now in my Orion 2 aids that I have are both power; the receivers have "2P" on them. I did some research and found that they are just power receivers. I stopped using them as the Left side aid would turn itself on/off randomly by itself.

    I'm wearing a spare pair of old Phonak BTE's and they are both Super Power aids.

    Just want to make sure to get the right ones so that; if I need more power then I have it instead of buying new aids again.

    Is there is a list some where with the names of power and super power aids from all the manufactures?

    Thanks
