I'll second this opinion - I'm a dispensing and aided audiologist who is
currently test-driving a Siemens programmable, with a reverse slope (but
conductive) hearing loss, and I like the sound of this hearing aid. And I did
manage to get the highs reduced enough not to drive me nuts (I have a 5 dB
threshold at 4 kHz).
We've done a couple of CIC fittings with good results, but not with the
configuration of hearing loss described - I think it'd be worth a try, though.
