I'm sure Thurs. night will be a sleepless night. I am excited for you!! When I got my Beamie Baha (named after Frank Beamer - Va Tech Football--GOOO HOKIES, lol) in Nov 2012, I just sat and listened to everything. Every sound was like I was hearing it for the first time. And technically I was--all through one ear. The tinny sound went away after about 3 or so weeks. Sometimes I'll smack something and I'll hear a tinny sound. It kinda sounds like the sound effects in the newer Tom And Jerry cartoons. I still just listen to everything sound--I no longer take my hearing (or anything else) for granted. After this AN experience my world is anew--nothing will ever be the same again.
I got my Baha "tweaked" in Feb. (after my follow up AN appt). They turned it up a notch or two. I have trouble with soft, low sounds. I have best results on the second level.
I will say this--I still have a hard time hearing when therer is a lot of background noise, such as a full with music playing or when a lot of people are talking. I think--all these sounds are trying to go in one ear. My poor brain!
I am totally pleased with Beamie Baha-the only complaints are what I have mentioned above.
