I’m curious as to whether Echo Block (that’s what Phonak calls it) is a feature worth activating or if it is just hype; or even if it makes sound worse.
I have it activated right now, but I have new hearing aids and haven’t had an adjustment yet and so I can’t say whether it works or not.
In the past, I never had it activated. When I had my hearing aids programmed, it wasn’t activated, and when I asked an audiologist about it, in his opinion, he said it didn’t do any good for his clients. Now, other audiologists have different opinions.
Since these new hearing aids have not been adjusted yet, I haven’t asked about it.
But I’m interested from other people… does it do anything, is it worth having it on? Will it make speech understanding worse in some situations while it reduced echo?
