Description

Question: I've been fitting a lot of receiver-in-canal (RIC) products, and when I have a patient with good low-frequency hearing, I like to use the smaller gain receiver option because I worry about the larger gain receiver being noisier. Sometimes though, use of the smaller gain receiver makes it difficult to fit prescriptive targets for moderately-severe to severe high frequency hearing loss thresholds. Should I be concerned about larger receivers being noisier?
