I just got a pair of DOT by ReSound (Model 30) hearing aids. This is my first hearing aid. My ENT has audiologists in his suite at the university medical center. After being tested the dr told me that an aid would be a big help based on my complaints and the test. The audiologist that tested me is different than the one that fitted me for an aid. He reviewed my needs and we both agreed that a top-of-the-line hearing aid would work best for me. My biggest concern was hearing my 3 yr old granddaughter, and hearing conversations in noisy and crowded restaurants. He provided me with the Dot by Resound for $6200 for the pair. I think the price was not completely out of line.
My question is, is this a great hearing aid. I have nothing to compare it to but I am pretty happy with it so far - about 8 hours of wearing it. I can definitely hear my granddaughter much better. I took a bus back from the audiologist and was surprised that the bus rumble and sounds did not seem amplified but I could hear kids talking that I am sure I would have missed.
The sound of paper rustling and water flowing sound so different. My wife says that I am speaking much more softly. My voice sounds very weird to me.
So far I am pretty happy with it. I would love to know of anyone else who has this HA and what they think.
