  1. I have had my digital ReSound hearing aids for several years. My audiologist recommended them because I needed a powerful hearing aid to accommodate my hearing loss. While I appreciate the 3 directional microphones, the sound suppression, and 3 settings, I am not sure if I am using these all these features to maximize my hearing.

I would like to suggest that testing and digital aid adjustments be made in a room that provides a variety of sounds: a concert, outside traffic, restaurant settings and listening to a speaker in an auditorium, to name a few.

  2. I just started thinking about getting a new hearing aid as well (I only have one). I looked online a bit, but it seemed pretty confusing. So many options. I think I will talk to my audiologist.
