1. A hearing device comprising:
a memory storing instructions; and
a processor communicatively coupled to the memory and configured to execute the instructions to:
maintain data representative of a first fitting strategy for the hearing device, the first fitting strategy comprising a first set of values for a plurality of parameters that specify an operation of the hearing device;
maintain data representative of a second fitting strategy for the hearing device, the second fitting strategy comprising a second set of values for the plurality of parameters;
receive a value for a mixing setting that specifies a weighting between the first fitting strategy and the second fitting strategy;
determine, based on the value for the mixing setting, a custom fitting strategy comprising a custom set of values for the plurality of parameters, the custom set of values including combinations of the first and second sets of values that are weighted in accordance with the weighting specified by the value for the mixing setting; and
direct the hearing device to output a signal based on the custom fitting strategy.
 
14. A method comprising:
maintaining, by a hearing device, data representative of a first fitting strategy for the hearing device, the first fitting strategy comprising a first set of values for a plurality of parameters that specify an operation of the hearing device;
maintaining, by the hearing device, data representative of a second fitting strategy for the hearing device, the second fitting strategy comprising a second set of values for the plurality of parameters;
receiving, by the hearing device, a value for a mixing setting that specifies a weighting between the first fitting strategy and the second fitting strategy;
determining, by the hearing device and based on the value for the mixing setting, a custom fitting strategy comprising a custom set of values for the plurality of parameters, the custom set of values including combinations of the first and second sets of values that are weighted in accordance with the weighting specified by the value for the mixing setting; and
outputting, by the hearing device, a signal based on the custom fitting strategy.
 
20. A computing device comprising:
a memory storing instructions; and
a processor communicatively coupled to the memory and configured to execute the instructions to:
receive a value for a mixing setting that specifies a weighting between a first fitting strategy for a hearing device communicatively coupled to the computing device and a second fitting strategy for the hearing device, the first fitting strategy comprising a first set of values for a plurality of parameters that specify an operation of the hearing device and the second fitting strategy comprising a second set of values for the plurality of parameters;
determine, based on the value for the mixing setting, a custom fitting strategy comprising a custom set of values for the plurality of parameters, the custom set of values including combinations of the first and second sets of values that are weighted in accordance with the weighting specified by the value for the mixing setting; and
transmit a command to the hearing device to operate based on the custom fitting strategy.
