One nice thing about CIC's is that functional testing can be performed
for each each using headphones.  I use this method to show a patient
how much benefit they are receiving at each frequency for each ear.  If
you are unsure of the benefits you are getting with these devices, ask
your audiologist of dispenser to measure functional gain with the aids
on using headphones.
