Ack! Back after a few MONTHS of travel and no time to get the latest trends & info here - which I sorely need. In any case, my gut feeling is that this application may not be understood by all. I suppose those who are more tech savvy or long-time users would get more benefit out of culling the NO GO aids from a short list … but even tho I’d pretty much fall in that category myself, I don’t know if I’d feel comfortable going into an app’t with my aud guy telling HIM what HE should tell ME. It’s a question of expertise, training and education. I only know aids as I’ve worn them. But I rely on my audiologist to run my audiogram and suggest the optimum aid to fit that profile.
I’m way past caring who does what with my audiogram data, but I can definitely say this after 30+ years of wearing aids: there is STILL no miracle product out there. What bugs me is how much technology is thrown at a pair of aids (pairing, fine-tuning, other apps on iPhones) when the actual device still has FAR FAR to go in terms of genuinely fixing a hearing loss and compensating for that loss on all levels. Well, I digress … but if any User’s Group would ever like an articulate, sometimes grumpy and maybe too pushy advocate for what’s needed in hearing aids, I VOLUNTEER.
