After about 25 years of not speaking on a phone, I have been doing so this week. It's really weird. I don't always understand them but I am practicing!

I got tested recently. She made a change to my programming before the test and it made the sounds softer. So I only got 78% speech recognition. After the test, she fixed the programming. I am confident it would be higher if tested again.

Glad you finally got some high end HAs! Don't be afraid to have them reprogrammed several times, each person is different. Even my audiologist didn't get it perfect the first time, he's just going to max the gains this time around. Then ill practice speech recognition. You are at 78% which sounds great! I could never properly understand phones, maybe I will when my HAs are reprogrammed. Great job you understand phones after 25 years.
