It was so good to see you again today. I put off updating my hearing aids much too long and my wife really put her foot down about doing something-NOW.
Getting accustomed to the new devices is going to be exciting, and I can already tell you something I discovered that is really impressive.
After supper I got on my old Airdyne exercise bike in the basement to do my daily workout. I always watch the TV news while I ride, but when I started to pedal hard I realized that the chain noise was so loud I couldn’t hear the TV at all. Thinking I would need to try to make some kind of adjustment later I just kept pedaling, but then I got a huge surprise. After twenty seconds of hearing all that chain noise it suddenly seemed that the hearing aid stopped working. It took a moment to realize that I could clearly understand every word coming from the TV and it was only the noise from the chain that was gone, almost entirely.
After going on for about ten minutes I decided to stop exercising and see what happened. It took about fifteen seconds for the hearing aids to settle back into the original configuration as before. I started to pedal again to watch closely what was happening. Here is the really peculiar part. This change came exactly as the first time but I noticed that the change happened at first only on the right side, but once the correction was fully made only then did the left side suddenly update to the same setting as the right side.
It seems that these devices take sound samples and see that the chain noise is a continuous sound, not modulating up and down as you would have in speech or music. It apparently is found to be a junk sound and is then blocked. What an extraordinary piece of technology this is!
You people are the best!
