Allen and BlueSumos,
Thanks for the great responses! I needed to hear that basic intro information and I'll feel a lot more informed when I meet with the audiologist. I had to chuckle at the paddle comment . . . it's not that I don't respect their need to make money. I just don't want them steering me to "Brand X" only because they'll win a cruise this month if they sell 25 pairs.
Interton Avio 5
I have on trial an Interton A560-D for my left ear and are very happy with the results. I have been offered a A560-D HPG for my right ear and wonder if this is the best way to go?

Again, I don't put them on the same plane as the top flight companies,,but they are improving.
Why would you only fit that loss monaurally?

reverse slope loss
Hi Mike...I am waiting for Costco's be resound for my right ear...I can't afford 2 right now...I would love to know of some aids that are better for this loss...I have learned that BTE with custom molds are better...I had Cielo 2's and couldn't get used to them...then I lost them..I was okay with the BTE's just heard too much other stuff...I teach kindergarten and I had them in and out all day long...any input from you would be appreciated...
I have 90 days to try costco's and I do like the audi there and it would be convenient to go for adjustments...thanks for your help.Rosie

I have a couple of questions for you about your previous experience. You mentioned that you had Cielo 2s. Were those the "life" version with open, closed, or custom tips? Or, were they the standard BTE with controls that you could adjust yourself?
Also, a Be by Resound may not be the best thing for you. You have a low tone hearing loss and an open canal hearing aid may not be the best thing for you. By closing your ear canal, you can get more of that low tone hearing that you need. There are also no manual controls on that aid. Manual controls like a push button can help.
cielo 2's vs. be resound
Hey Mike...My cielo 2's were BTE where I could control the volume and button for program myself, which I felt I needed (and used a lot along with taking them in and out if things got too noisy)...the BE resound are custom in the canal and have more venting...the remote mic hopefully reduces some noise...I have 90 days and since I have been on here have learned a great deal...I like the audi at Costco...he is patient and laid back and with this type of loss a patient audi is crucial as I know I will be back and forth for adjustments (hopefully not)...I have a list of other aids that have been mentioned on here to try if this doesn't work...big question: with all this digital wonderful technology, why can't some smart engineer devise an aid to fit our loss and not just loss for the high tones? Thanks for any input Mike! Rosie
