Hearing a ssssshhhhh with new aids
Fri, 07/16/2010 - 12:18
I just got a pair of new Phonak Eleva BTEs. I keep on getting this hissing sound (ssshhhhhhhhhh) that gets louder as outside sounds increase. Everything I hear is mixxed with this hissing sound. A regular conversation makes a modest hiss, while street noise makes a louder hiss. Is there an adjustment that could make this less obtrusive, if not fix it altogether? Its is very annoying and I'm wanting to get it fixed so that I can actually try out my hearing aids. I'm on my 4th pair of aids which i've had over the past 16 years. I had this problem once before with a pair of new HAs but I can't remember how it was fixed. If you could remember for me, it would be greatly appreciated!!
