Great forum (new to it)
During the past 9 yrs (age 17-26) I have smashed, smoked, hydrated and dropped oh so many aids…
Because of my “active” lifestyle I’ve always gone for the smallest CIC’s out there (expected liftime of a BTE would be about 5 seconds)
However, since most companies now offer small, lightwight RIC’s or mBTE’s I feel for the first time I can try something else (cic’s having their disadvantages in plugging and low gain)
The aids I have in mind right now are
Siemens Centra Active
Phonac Exelia MicroBTE
Oticon Delta 8000
All experiences with either (or similar) aid are appriciated and most of all I’m interested in how they stick to your person…
Ie, do you drop them easily?
Can you stand on your head with the hearing aids in?
What happens if you shake your head? Do they come of?
