Leah Posted November 6, 2015 Report Share Posted November 6, 2015 My processor was turned on about 8 months ago, and so far I have seen no evidence that the Automatic Sound Management, as described by Med-El, works for me. "Sound Management detects changing listening situations on the go, adapting automatically so you don't have to." When I go to a restaurant it takes me about 10 minutes of playing with the remote before I get something that works...but nothing really works well in a restaurant. Once the background noise is reduced to a comfortable level, I can hardly hear my husband. "Dual stage also ensures that a sudden increase in loudness does not result in an uncomfortable change in volume for the user" When my husbands voice is at a comfortable level, my voice is too loud. If the automatic volume control was working, wouldn't both voices be at a comfortable level? I can hear very little on TV. The volume changes within a single word. One syllable is too soft and the next is too loud. What I hear on TV sounds just like my neighbor's little dog barking. My processor is changing something...but not to optimize anything. One day my husband and I can sit down an have a conversation. The next day, with the same program and remote settings, we are back to writing notes to talk to each other. It is hard to persevere when practice is so unpleasant and my patience is wearing thin. Leah Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
