best hearing aid for reverse slope loss

I am new to this site and was hoping for some insight from others who also experience reverse slope hearing loss. Currently, I am trying to find the best hearing aid to accommodate my needs. However, it seems to be more difficult to find one that will bump up my lows that feel in a comfortable range for me. Ths sound seems like it should be loud but the clarity is still out of reach. I have lost 45db in my left and 60 in my right. This will be my third round of aids (first Siemens then Widex CIC) in the last 10 years and my loss continues to grow. Any ideas, on what might be a good fit? I am looking at Phonak products right now...

Any help would be much appreciated!

RSHL has a group in yahoo, and some are very knowledable and experienced.

Did you join it ?? Basically, it is very difficult to find a suitable HA for our
group.
1 Most are HFHL, and the audiologist has not enough experience.
2 THe manufacturer focus in researching the most best seller HA, which
is HFHL HA.
3 Different settings take long time to evaluate.
I would suggest you to find a HA, which includes the tools that you may
adjust it yourselves.

Good luck!!

Thanks flypig! I am very interested in joining the yahoo group. Do you know what it's official name is? I have to admit, I am a bit internet group challenged :-). I will try and search for it too. But if it isn't too much trouble, could you send a link or give me more identifying info.

I really appreciate it!

Send a message via AIM to deafdyke
I've got a reverse slope loss. Can you see a decent audi? Such as one attached to a school for the deaf, or a big city audi?
Dump the dinky aids. They don't give enough power for more then mild losses. Go with BTEs.......the difference is amazing.
I have Oticon Tego Pros and they rock!

Hello, I currently own two BTE aids by Siemens. Cielo Life 2. both are fantastic aids and one of them quit after one repair. I am hard on them riding mountain bikes and fishing in a boat here in Georgia. I bought a pair 5 to 6 years ago and replaced one just about two months ago. Got the same exact model (diff. color) on an Ebay auction for $200! BTE aids are the way to go my friend. My Chiropractor who is a Veteran listened to my advice and now a year later has BTE's and he and his wife really like their performance. good luck and keep in touch.
