As I said, their paradigm works for you, or they do things differently in the NX that you have. I know that with my audiogram with the Motion NX7 13 BTE, they cut the heck out of the high frequencies. To get them up where real hear says they should be…I ran out of headroom. My audiologist asked questions, they gave “I don’t know, you don’t need to know” answers. Signia’s Audi plugged in my audiogram and she got the same default crap curve that my audiologist got. The hearing aid was specified to be able to handle…easily handle…my loss. It couldn’t. Neither the right or left. I would have to go to their most powerful unit…for a moderate to severe loss. My audiogram is on here. Download the Signia software, plug in my audiogram and the aid I used. You will see the most retarded default curve you have ever seen.
Good did come of it. I got my audiologist to give me a 3db bump in the MPO in the higher frequencies for my Resounds. Took care of my issues.
Again…if it works for you, great. It won’t for most. I would wager 80% would prefer the OPN and 20% the NX7.
Their attitude cost them my business. Had their audiologist acted like she gave a damn, I would have had my audiologist order the power units and I would have tried them. I was able to do something I have never done. I eavesdropped on a conversation - 2 tables down - in a restaurant. I got about every other word. I was so thrilled!
So that is cool, but at work, I had to say huh and what to everything. With the OPN and the Linx3D, I had a marked reduction in the huh and what in conversations in which I am participating. That is what is important…more so than gee whiz…I can hear well over there, but can’t hear crap right next to me. Makes sense you know. Without the headroom, the NX7 was crushing everything next to me. So guess what was clear…that conversation 2 tables down. The spatial tool works too!
In a quiet environment, the Nx7 was fine. It wasn’t lopping off the top ends of everything.
OVP…gee whiz feature. Get a new user to wear hearing aids a week and most will adjust to how their voice sounds. Had I kept trying with the Signia line, I would have had that cut off. It is useless to me and is what Signia is most proud of.
Ok, enough. The Signia works for you, good. That is you. That will not be most people. I will guarantee that.
