I recently bought a set of Siemens Centra HP BTEs. They are the best hearing aids I’ve ever owned. The e2e wireless keeps both aids in synch on volume and program which is great once you get the gain set “just right”. It took several tries setting the master gain on each aid to achieve this and it was very well worth the trouble.
With e2e, one touch changes the program in both aids and one volume wheel adjusts both aids’ gain up or down. The sound-smoothing is excellent also. I ask my audie to set it to “MIN” since I’m an experienced wearer. “MIN” kicks in at 60dB and knocks the sound down 20dB on “sharp” inputs. :o
They also have outstanding directional mics that work in synch with each other and with modern feedback cancellation - it’s a non-issue. The Centra HP offers a lot of gain (up to 75dB) and still uses a size 13 battery for a small overall size. There are a dozen other features that are too numerous to mention here.
The drawbacks - $$. They retail for over $5,000 each. :mad: Of course you can get a set much cheaper. My set, with an extended 3 year warranty and an ePocket remote cost $4,900. If you can afford them and have a good audie nearby who sells Siemens aids, I highly recommend them.
