    it looks like you'd need a custom mold to use the 105s My extremely limited understanding is that if you have some sort of frequency lowering implemented, there is no need to try to amplify the higher frequencies. (Perhaps less true for Oticon since the high frequencies remain?)
    Yes, for Oticon the high frequencies remain. But since my high freq loss is so severe and profound, I'd kinda given up hope to be able to hear anything at 3 to 4KHz and up anyway. That's why I was content with the 85db receivers. But in light of the Speech Rescue lowering the sounds down to the 2KHz range as its lowest destination range, I do have a chance to hear them at 2KHz if I now have the right receiver size for it. So that's why I'm going to want to go to bigger receivers now so I can make use of Speech Rescue. Even though Oticon keeps the high frequencies around and only "copy" them to the lower range, I only want to go to the bigger receivers so I can hear the lowered sounds because I don't have much hope to hear the higher sounds anyway. But if I can hear the higher sounds with the bigger receivers as well then that's even better.

    Below is the table listing the 10 configurations organized by Oticon for Speech Rescue LX according to the Oticon white paper. Genie 2 will pick one of these configurations to use as your default configuration based on your audiogram. I'm assuming that my default configuration based on my audiogram is configuration 1 because I already have pretty severe loss at the 2KHz range, and the destination range for configuration 1 is the lowest possible destination range Speech Rescue has allocated out of its 10 configurations.

    The other thing the white paper mentioned is that configurations 1 to 5 will be subdivided into 3 sub-sections for the composition. Configurations 6 to 10 will be subdivided into 2 sub-sections only for the composition.

    Note, however, that this white paper is dated 2015, 2 years after Speech Rescue made its way to the OPN. So I don't know if the configurations from this white paper will apply to the OPN or not. But I'll assume that it still applies unless there's a new paper coming out to contradict this.

    Curious to know if anyone has any more thoughts on speech rescue. I go in on Thursday for the FW update. How did it work out with keeping the current settings as one of the programs to check against the new settings? Any problems, improvements, suggestions????

    I was listening to my iPhone music on the car sound system today (via regular Bluetooth connection) and noticed a lot of high end artifacts that weren't there before. I presume that it was due to the frequency composition of Speech Rescue. The funny thing is with direct streaming from the iPhone to the OPN on the same exact song (and iTunes source), I don't hear the Speech Rescue artifacts. But on the car sound system I do. I guess the direct streaming from the iPhone is smart enough maybe to not enable Speech Rescue when I play from iTunes in direct streaming mode? But in the car mode, apparently Speech Rescue kicks in because the sound is picked up by the OPN mics and it wouldn't know if that was speech or music anyway.

    The moral of the story is that you should really have 2 modes. If you want Speech Rescue enabled for TV streaming and iPhone streaming, you should have it enabled in the default program 1. BUT I highly recommend you have a program 2 that can be the same as program 1, except without Speech Rescue. That way you can use program 2 to listen to music through the HAs' mics and don't get the Speech Rescue artifacts. Another nice thing about this setup is that you can do A/B comparison between the 2 programs to see how effective/useful Speech Rescue is for you. I made the mistake of having only 1 default program 1 with Speech Rescue turned on, so I'll have to ask my audi to add this program 2 without Speech Rescue next time I see her.
