First post. Have been lurking for the past few months and trying to learn as much as possible before my first test, now scheduled for next week at Costco, which leads to some questions. Specifically, I am interested in knowing more about the ReSound Linx Quattro units that are sold at Costco, how new (or old) the technology is, and if they are recommended by those who have them. I do not want to be victim of an uninformed decision.
FYI, my hearing loss becomes most noticeable with noisy environments and high pitched speech. At a recent conference it was very difficult to make out what the person sitting across from me was saying. Am also an Android phone user.
There is a loooong thread on the forum regarding the Costco KS-9 units, which I would consider. Yesterday, the audiologist (?) at Costco was pointing me instead to the ReSound Linx Quattro which they also sell (more $$), as it has more programming options than the KS-9 units, and more up to date.
Price aside, I want to purchase something that is current state of the art, and not purchasing something that is about to be replaced. I don’t read many recent posts regarding the Quattro units. Per the Costco guy, these are new units as of mid-2019 (but it is not clear if this was a hardware and/or a software update).
If Resound or someone else is coming out in the next few months or early next year with a new (improved) unit, I could easily wait.
