Re: Hearing Aid Problem
Knowing if you are experiencing difficulty hearing or are having increased stress and strain in your daily life may include asking people to repeat things, having difficulty with hearing in background noise, difficulty hearing women and children, if others seem to be mumbling and if the TV needs to be louder are a few potential indicators. Amplification not only may help with hearing better in the situations that are important to you such as being with family and friends, but may also simply relieve the strain of hearing and the often resulting fatigue. You may want to ask yourself whether you find you are becoming stressed or fatigued after a day of straining to listen and whether the ability to hear, but not understand, is adequate for your needs. Sometimes it is difficult to ask ourselves whether we are becoming a burden to our family and friends, even if we do not personally recognize difficulty hearing. Hearing loss is often a gradual process. Wearing a hearing aid is not a mark of infirmity, but may be a mark of courtesy to others. Thus, sometimes it is advisable to arrange to try hearing aids within your own unique listening environments in order to determine whether the benefits are what is desired. You will want to ask the audiologist you consult with about the trial period that is offered in their office when they discuss possible solutions for your individual concerns.

Tcoil should be turned off for normal day to day hearing aid use so that the person wearing the hearing aid does not hear a "buzzing" sound. The Tcoil picks up teleloop signals which is a special signal sent out by a teleloop antennae.
Some students with hearing aids use tcoil for special programs that let them hear the teacher. Tcoils were popular in older hearing aids for phone use but now people use Bluetooth in hearing aids more.
The Bolero model requires clear passage of sound through the tube that connects it to the dome/tip that fits into your ear. To determine if the tube is blocked, with a good battery inserted and the battery door closed, unscrew the top of the tube where it connects to the hearing aid. If you cup the hearing aid in your hand, it should whistle/feedback. If not, there is something wrong with the hearing aid. If it does whistle, your audiologist should have provided you with a thin, flexible plastic piece (often green) and instructed you how to unscrew the tube at the top of the hearing aid to run the plastic piece through the tube, all the way out the other end of the dome/tip. If that piece can travel the entire tube easily, then sound should be able to. In any case, a Phonak hearing aid has at least a one year manufacturer warranty (a Q90 likely has a three year) and they will pay for shipping both ways to fix it. You need to send it via an audiologist, though.
Take your hearing aid to your specialist. Check on wax in your ears. Also are you near a window when the feedback occurs? Due to the phase-cancellation in hearing aids sometimes the signal bounces back and thinks it's feedback.So the hearing aid sends out it's own frequency at 180 degrees and hits it to cancel it out. If this is a false reading however the hearing aid will create its own feedback
Where did you get your instrument? This is where I would go to obtain the hearing aid tubes you are requesting. Generally, unless you have the expertise to replace the tube you may be making another problem to solve by replacing this hearing aid tube for an Electone Tango 3p hearing aid.
Experience is a hard teacher, because she gives the test first, the lesson afterwords."
There are many factors that need to be considered when estimating the price of the hearing aid: What type of aid is it? What accessories does it have? Is it digital or analogue? Is it programmable? Did I get my hearing consultation and other services with the aid? What are the capabilities and product features? One hearing aid can cost $50 (for disposable aids) to $5,000 for models with the most cutting-edge technology.
This depends on how much energy and power the hearing aid needs, how often you use it and what type of hearing aid it is. Some batteries may last days while others can last weeks. Consult your hearing professional and read through information supplied by your battery manufacturer to ensure that you follow the steps to maximize the life of the batteries.
