HearPeers Heroes Sandy Posted January 17, 2014 HearPeers Heroes Report Share Posted January 17, 2014 I'm hoping some of the experts can help me. I go for my next mapping next week and I am having some difficulty with the way I am hearing. Everything sounds tinny and like I'm in an echo chamber. I think it is because I live alone and don't talk on a daily basis with people. I've been keeping the tv on, listening to audio books and music too but when I'm talking with people the sound is very high pitched. My audiologist said during the last mapping it will take me longer to adjust as I've never heard high pitches and have a low tolerance to them plus loud sounds. Do you think it would be wise to do one program, as an experiment, at the optimum level, to see if it is tolerable? Or would it be better to reduce the high pitched sounds? I do understand what people say, but still rely heavily on my lip reading skills. My audiologist says that for me that will always be the case. Thanks for any help you can provide. Guess I'm just a little frustrated. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
