After going back to the audiologist for two different adjustments, I'm now recognizing that these hearing aids are helping me. It's not huge improvements, but it's slight. And any improvement is a good thing. The audi thinks it will take a few more adjustments as they are tweaked based on how I'm using them. The technology is pretty amazing and they record how I use each program. That information can be translated and help the audi know how to change them. I went to a small family gathering the other day and was pleasantly surprised to hear some of the conversation.
