The More aids are firmware updated but as of yet haven’t been updated for hands free use. My audiologist has called me in for an appointment on the 26th of January, I will ask if he has heard of any more updates
MrAerodynamic I see you are from the west coast so then there apparently is a version of hands free MFI for ReSound here in the USA… if possible when you are finished demoing the starkey HA’s and go back your audi could you please ask him what version was on the ReSound ones?? thx

Okay just got an email from my Audiologist, coming this May all MFI hearing aid manufacturers will be having completely hands free calling. And the word at this time is that the Oticon rep for our VA clinic believes that the More aids will get a firmware update to make it happen.
Starkey, in the Evolv 2400, have made the choice of mic between the HAs or the phone your choice and user selectable/changeable. What they have yet to do is to put an answer/hang up on the double tap feature. It is my understanding that this is on the drawing board, but timing is unclear. Therefore, you have to initiate the call and hang up either with Siri or by hand. This is not a full hands free execution at this point. I understand when they do upgrade the firmware to allow for this, you will have to get your AuD to do the upgrade.
ETA: I just got my Evolv 2400 RIC R HAs today. By all accounts, the call quality using the HA mics is very good. THBS, I have been in a quiet office environment for the day. I suspect that a noisier environment may necessitate using the phone mic. Time will tell.
Good point on the answer/hang up capability directly on the HA buttons. Probably more useful than changing programs on the MORE since they only cycle through and its easier to just use the app if you have more than a couple of programs. I used to prefer the mute button on the HAs but i understand that is not an option now.
I just want to be able to walk around without the phone in my hand while on a call. It might end up being a minor improvement.
Glad that the quality is good. After all, it should be if those mics are meant to help compensate for hearing loss.
