I am 24 years old and about to get my first pair of aids (hereditary loss). The idea of a CIC is very appealing to me, but I also want to make sure that I am getting an aid that will be best for my hearing loss.
I live in NYC so I am constantly dealing with loud environments, and my job requires a lot of interaction with people (everything from one-on-one office conversations to dinners parties and social events) so being a part of the conversation is critical for me.
My audi suggested the Starkey Destiny for a CIC, or the Siemens Pure 500/700 RIC. The Pure sounds great to me (Tek options, size, directional mic) but I’ve seen problems in this forum with “tinny” sounds in high frequencies, and due to the nature of my loss I’m afraid it wouldn’t work well for me. I’ve seen good things about the Phonak Yes in this forum, but for some reason my Audi didn’t recommend it. Does anyone have any experience with these models? Or have other option to recommend?
Any help would be GREATLY appreciated!!
