This is my first post in this forum, I was reading some of previous posts but still need your expert recommendations!!
I’m 46 years, using HA in my right ear since 2001,
My first HA in 2001 was CIC in right ear as it was enough in that time, from 2004 upgraded to ITC, Bernafon Smile, then in 2009 to Bernafon Symbio ITC (which has more power than Smile but less clarity),
For the past 11 years, I have tried some BTE for my left ear, but never was able to get used to it,
Now, there are some nice powerful HA which may allow me to upgrade but go back to my favorite CIC.
Here in Dubai, there is only one dispenser for each brand, and one brand for each dispenser,
<b>Bernafon CHRONOS 5 </b>CICP, $ 1700 / each, but it will be ITC for the left ear.
<b>Oticon, Ino </b>CIC Power (6 channels), $ 1100 / each, but it will be ITC for the left ear
<b>Phonak Cassia</b>, 10 Petite (CIC) SP, (6 channels), $ 1350 / each, and I will get one for the right ear, then in case I’m happy, I will get another for the left as it seems powerful enough for both ears :).
<b>Siemens Nitro 301</b>, CIC, 8 channels, $ 1350 / each, same plan as option 3 ,
Please, any advice?? as my previous experience was only with Bernafon, and have no personal experience with other brands, and as u see, I’m keen to go back to CIC and also to re-use my right ear again…
Many thanks in advance,.
