Thread: Venting hole , yes/ no?

    got them closed and it's good, however I did notice that the fitting software calibrates an amplification that is rather low for me, I can't understand people talk witch each other when I'm next to them but not directly adressed, also in a closed room some poeple sound like they're rather whispering.

    It's like I need another 10dB to what the software suggests, is that rather uncommon?

    goota see what total amplification I had on wednesday, but WR was 100% @ 100dB, I think I need them way more powered up, and my audi said that is very unusual.

    Genie2 has 3 input levels for gain. One thing I noticed was I was thinking everyone was a soft speaker. So we bumped up the soft speech. When in reality it was even normal speech that was soft for me. We bumped the normal and loud speech which effectively lowered the compression levels. This worked well for me with people who I thought sounded quiet.

    thx for the reply, yeah I also suspect that those lvls need a proper adjustment, will report to my audi.

    My OPNs were too soft for me also, even thought the amplification was right on target using the Oticon VAC+ fitting protocol. Had audiologist run a real ear test which showed the high frequencies were quite low. Since I can do my own programming, but was inexperienced, I changed to the NAL-NL2 fitting protocol. The NAL-NL2 targets were noticeably higher. I have added about 10db at higher frequencies and am now quite happy with my hearing, speech clarity and even speech in noise. Since my domes are open, I am not using much noise reduction (Level 1) on the Automatic program, and clarity is still very good. I have Program 2 set with same amplification but max directional noise reduction, but rarely use it. I plan to get the real ear test rerun later this month, out of curiosity (can't do that myself). I suggest yo ask your audiologist to switch fitting protocols from VAC+ to NAL-NL2, run feedback analyzer, but then manually set amplification to target using Fine Tuning.

    The AuD can usually select which fitting formula to use.. If the OP wants the vent holes closed that should all of a minute. When they do that they will need to update the fitting software to closed molds and also rerun the feedback control. At the same he can have them raise the volume if that's what the OP wants. Including closing the mold the whole deal take no more than 10 minutes.

    well they kinda reduced compression by lowering the low lvl and raising the mids and highs by a couple of dB. that kinda worked, but they might have not been agressive enough in some small occasions I still have a ringing in the right side, but it's the right direction.
