In my last post I mentioned that I am trying out four programs this week to see which one we will build from going forward. Today I will post a little about programs 1 and 4.
Program 1 is a big step back with respect to volume. Nothing is loud enough. However, every sounds good and everything I hear is identifiable. But it is much too soft.
- Advantage: Amazing clarity
- Disadvantage: So soft, it is unhelpful.
Program 4 is loud, just like my previous settings. Still too loud but the balance is better. It is not terribly annoying like the previous settings. The volume seems to be higher than what I hear with my aided ear. Unfortunately, it is mostly whistle sounds.
- Advantage: Volume. I can hear things far away and things that are too quiet to normally hear.
- Disadvantage: It is mostly noise divorced from meaning. With good volume the clarity goes away.
Programs 2 and 3 are adjustments somewhere in the middle. I will try these two out for a couple of days and post a report here.
