Anyone who needs hearing aids, also ends up despising them. We can’t communicate without them, but the problems they can cause… oy veh! And the crappy sound!
What I found among numerous hearing aid users is that, invariably, the frequency band around 1 kHz is receiving too much help.
The frequency band between 1 and 2 kHz is often called the “Pain Frequencies”. Too much of that, and you want to just run away from it.
You can get a sense of 1 kHz by thinking of a full stadium during a touchdown. That collective cheering has a broad spectrum, peaking around 1 kHz.
So, maybe you can gain some forbearance with your hearing aids, if you just have your audiologist tone down the 1 kHz level, just a bit. You might find it more pleasant than before.
