Trying the sounds with a BAHA test band would tell how much bone conduction one has. Your audiologist has a test instrument to check this for you. My audiologist stated that some people will have less transference across the bone if the skull bone is very dense.
I mean our parents told us we were dense, they probably didn't mean dense in that way. LOL!
However, such density is not the norm. So, using the test band would confirm sound for you. The band presses a digital mic pick up hard against the head behind and slightly above the deaf ear. Perhaps the test band would give a person the audiotory sensation of hearing through the bone and of knowing how sounds come across.
For me the BAHA test at 2 months post op was amazing, a sound like a cell phone on low volume. This band test gave me a summation similar to what I get today with my TransEar.
The hearing aid for SSD adds volume to the good ear, and does not alter the quality, or pitch characteristics of that summation. You aren't aware of a "cell phone quality" in the mix.
