It's been an interesting journey for me. The three places I've found all have their own issues.
The guy who only uses oticon wouldn't help me at all. Told me I would hate it and everything would sound bad and pushed the Baha or BiCros on me that his friend deals with.
The guy who only uses Starkey would only use a RiC type for me and it was turned up so high that it sounded like a blown speaker.. all crackly. That was a miserable month since he couldn't adjust it out.
The guy at Costco (I know.. cheap junk supposedly but the best so far) has all the adjustments perfect but refuses to kill the compression. Instead he goes and adjusts other things and everything sounds awful.
So I either need to put my foot down and demand he turn it down and not mess up anything else.. or I need to get over it and deal with it. I've paid a lot of money to hear and for the most part.. I hear ok now.. but it's just so disorienting to have it pulsating and fluttering at me.
I need to grow a backbone and get this fixed for good.
