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.
