low tone shadow while hearing

I only have had this CI for about 3 months and I do get adjusted but I am having an annoying issue with low tones shadowing when I am hearing. It not always but it's there.

The best I can explain is when I am hearing a conversation and there is all the words and pitch that I can hear but a low bubbling sound is going on. The audiologist has eliminated most of it but it still there. Again it is not always there.

has anyone experience this?

I experienced what I called a low wavy sound that was noticeable when listening to sustained speech but not noticeable at the word level.  I described it as a sound you hear after the tympani is played- not the actual bangs on the tympani but the wavy tone quality afterwards.  We waited a bit and when that did not settle down, we turned off electrode 1 and it went away.  So keep talking with your audiologist and experiment a bit to find a remedy.

 

I am not sure if what we are describing is the same sound or not, but trial and error with MAPping changes can make a big difference.

went for my 3 months adjustments. The Audio deactive my first electrode 1. The continuous drumming noise is gone. I now get sometime a percolator sound now on some low pitch. I will keep records on what causes it and when I go back in Feb, we will see what can be done.

now on a good note before the change happen, we had word recognition test. Prior to my CI operation my word recognition was at 11% now it's at 70%. She was very impress, not everyone does that well in 3 months.

All is going good... I just keep working on the Angel Sound software every day.

Awesome!  You are doing terrific!  Keep at it.  I am glad that drumming noise went away for you.  That must make things sound better.

Well went for my 4th adjustment. Still having issues with the low tones. So they started from scratch. Major improvement. Also now have my12th electrode turned off, I was feeling the noise but not hearing the noise. So once again, I start learning to deal with certain sound that is new to me. Every day something new sound comes my way.. All good part of the learning process.. not even 6 months and they are amaze in my adaptability. Before I left they tested the CI and now have 78% hearing.
