I had a three month check-up with the MD at the Ear Institute in OKC yesterday. I suffered Sudden Hearing Loss in November 2010. My balance has improved markedly, but my hearing loss remains about the same (No usable hearing in the right ear and high frequency loss in the left.) The MD suggested a bicros aid might be a benefit.
I have trialed an Oticon Delta 8000 and a Dual HW in the past two months. The Dual was far better than the Delta, but even the Dual, not surprisingly, has problems dealing with offside speech in noisy environments. Since I have read on this forum that the Oticon Agil Pro is perhaps the best single aid solution for my type of loss, I want to trial it before trialing the bicros system.
Is the Agil Pro compatible with any of the wireless bicros systems? My local audie doesn’t think so, but she has just put in the Oticon product line and isn’t very familiar with it. The Phonak croslink seems to be highly regarded, but the nearest supplier is an hour’s drive away. What options do I have? Recommendation on how to proceed? Thanks, Vic
