I have two air machines in my small apartment. They are LOUD! I have a fan cancellation program on my HA's that works wonders. When I am out and about, I often forget to turn it off.I just went for my 2nd adjustment...Yes, it is getting better. And I have now tried the blue tooth phone option - Which was OK, but not great (though maybe it needs tweaking).
Your battery problem may be from a noisy environment (?).....I now shut off my air purifier when I am wearing CI. Both to save the CI battery and because the air purifier now sounds like a Mack truck parked next to me.
BTuckerwrites, You mention having a Phonak hearing aid in the non-inplanted ear so I am curious why you went with Cochlear rather than Advanced Bionics?
