Real Ear test

I have had Oticon hearing aids for almost 2 years now and love them as they give me much greater clarity. I also have TV Adaptor that allows Oticon aids to connect to digital out TV signal with surround sound high quality independent of TV speakers that my wife still uses. I also use bluetooth to listen to audio books at the YMCA gym connected to my aids. Recently I did have problem with right ear and decided to have ENT do hearing test. It came out the same as it did before I got the aids so I went back to audiologist and they found problem with aid and repaired it for free as aids are still under warranty.

@dsh33782 Thanks for responding.
My Oticon Opn 1 aids were also an improvement on clarity from my previous HAs, but the directionality is not as good with these as it was with my old aids, Phonaks. With the Phonaks I could be a noisy restaurant and click that feature on, and be able to hear the other people at the table, when facing them, better than they could hear each other! I do not have the TV adapter, I don't watch TV that much, but I also have the Connect Clip which really helps in some situations if the person is willing to wear it. I have had people say that they did not want to wear it. I too had a problem at one point and the aids were sent back to Oticon, and sure enough the aids had a problem. The replacement ones made a huge difference.

So, did you have the "real ear" test? That's what I am trying to figure out, if it makes a difference so I should plan to go to an audiologist who does it. From what I can understand that test is done after you get the hearing aids to determine if they are doing what they should be doing for your hearing. Is that correct?

Thanks, Don.
