I was surprised to learn that the Marvels/KS9s are not MFi, but after reading Apple’s steps to reconnect them after each power-down/up of the HAs I realize it’s not such a big deal (although I’d like the option of Live Listen and possibly other MFi features). What they describe is every bit as tedious as reconnecting ancient Bluetooth devices whereas most current BT audio devices ate automatically reconnected when powered on of in range (and there is a BT connection available).
This may sound trivial but consider a person who is effectively blind and struggles to do anything on even a plus-size phone.
So my question is, which of the quality HAs are as simple and reliable at automatically reconnecting to an iPhone as a $50 set of LG earbuds? Although speech recognition/comprehension is the single most critical factor in deciding this purchase, simple reliable connectivity to phone and TV/PC audio streamer are a close second.
Thanks for your insights!
