I now have a pair of these. I have discovered some additional functionality that is missing from the Smart 3D app when used with the Resound Forte.
Specifically, the Sound Enhancer functionality (second level of drill down within the various programs) has been dumbed down.
For example, in the Restaurant program, the Sound Enhancer does not permit the user to control the degree of microphone focus nor the amount of noise reduction - only tonal balance.
I am disappointed with this discovery, as I had hoped to experiment with these settings to find my “best” Restaurant settings, which I felt was a notable weakness with my KS5 aids (similar to Resound Verso).
This missing functionality was present in the now discontinued Resound Cala, and similar functionality is presently available in the KS7 and Brio2. This is strictly a Resound marketing decision and a curious one. I knew I would not have the remote programming or tinnitus features of the Linx3D, but I was not expecting this.
There is a lot to like about these aids, but right now I am not happy about this omission.
