I have significant high frequency (treble/voice/consonants) hearing loss. Lower frequencies are basically OK.
Last year I tried the Kirkland Signature 7 hearing aids. I returned them to Costco because the sound was way too tinny and unnatural. About a month ago I purchased the Phonak Brio 2 hearing aids from Costco. The sound quality is much better than the Kirkland S7 but the Brio 2 has some weird quirks.
One thing is that I frequently can hear the noise of the hearing aid itself adjusting its position behind my ears or against my glasses. The Kirkland S7 didn’t do that. It sounds like the plastic case is loose if that’s possible.
Another weird thing is that it seems like the algorithms in the hearing aids will cause the hearing aids to make frequent and noticeable changes to the functioning microphone levels causing me to have to frequently readjust my focus and concentration to account for the volume changes in my ears. Hopefully that explanation makes some sense.
I was thinking of returning the Brio 2 hearing aids to try the Brio 3 hearing aids. Any thoughts?
I was also thinking of returning the Brio 2 hearing aids and trying the GT Resound hearing aids. Any thoughts?
As an aside, I have an Android phone.
Thank you for your assistance.
