Audio Cable!

Posted in Uncategorized on January 16, 2010 by bahadude

A couple days ago I received an audio cable we had ordered a couple days before that.  I find that it works quite well, although if it gets turned too loud and then back down again, I still get whistling/feedback as usual.  However, it is definately an improvement from headphones if I need to listen to something, as I do not have to hold it by my ear.  I found that the sound quality is pretty much the same as when I am listening from a stereo or speaker of some kind, which is really good.

New BAHA

Posted in Uncategorized on January 16, 2010 by bahadude

About a week ago I went to the audiologist to get my new hearing aid.  It turns out that it did the exact same thing that the old one did.  There was feedback/whistling whenever there were loud sounds, or certain frequencies.  Basically, I noticed no difference at all.  Now we’re going to just wait until Cochlear comes out with some new software, because then we can try to fix it through programming.

Localizing

Posted in Uncategorized on January 1, 2010 by bahadude

Today I tried localizing again.  Someone would talk, and walk around, while my eyes were closed.  I would try to track where they went.  Most of the time, I would be able to follow the general direction of the sound, and almost always found where they were at the end.  It turns out that I can’t localize noises that are behind me.  I can tell that they are behind me, but nothing else.  Also, if a sound is to my left and slightly forward, I find it hard to tell if it is slightly forward or slightly backward.  I thought that these results were quite good, and I must be getting used to hearing direction a little more.

The BP100 is a regular part of my life now, it doesn’t sound weird to me anymore.
