Wed, Sep 18 3:55pm · Getting the right hearing aid for my 12 year old in Hearing Loss

From my experience, as well as talking with other hearing assisted friends, if you can afford it at this time, my suggestion is to go to a university-affiliated audiologist. I did this for my first hearing aid and found their expertise to be very helpful. By way of comparison, I went to a Costco and did get a comparable hearing; but, while I found it half the price, missed the experience in finetuning the hearing aids.

From talking with others who went to places like Miracle Ear, they weren't happy and some described it as you suggested, i.e., a sales pitch.

I would check out what financial assistance is available from your state for a child.

That all BTE hearing aids have T coils is not my experience/understanding. I got a Resound Linx three years ago that does not have a T coil (much to my disappointment). Last month, I got a Resound BTE Preza from Costco that does not have a T coil (much to the hearing specialist's surprise). Am I missing something?

I belong to book club at the local library and have little problem hearing with my HAs.

Yet, I know the difficulty you may be having because I attend meetings for a group that I belong to in my church. I have tremendous difficulty hearing in that setting which LOOKS about the same size. So I wondering if there is something about the acoustics that might account for the marked difference. Could someone with knowledge of the factors that go into good acoustics pipe in here?

Thanks,

I’m getting a new hearing aid soon & possibly a different audiologist. I would be very interested in hearing from others the ONE thing that they would change if they had it to do over again when they got their HA. And WHY. Thanks, Peg in Philadelphia
