I would like opinions on fitting CIC's on various losses, specifically the
maximum sloping loss that can be fit, and maximum precipitous high frequency
losses (i.e., normal through 2K or 3K and dropping) that can be fit.
I have routinely been fitting patients with moderately severe to severe
gradually sloping losses. Is anyone _routinely_ fitting worse losses? What
is the cutoff for the high frequency losses? I have tried a few that are
normal through 2K and drop to 60dB or so at 3K with about a 50% success rate.
Realizing that a good impression is crucial, I would also like opinions
about manufacturers . Does anyone feel that one company does better than
others? I have tried 3 different companies, Argosy, Lori, and Telix. Each
seems to have their own quirks, but Lori has been the most reliable and
Thanks for your input.
