As I wind down the tests of not-Beltone instruments, I wonder about the chart I was shown at my last Beltone adjustment.
There is now a newer model than the Imagine 17s I’m wearing, but it’s not significantly better and thus the rep didn’t suggest I move up. But she DID show me a chart comparing features of other makers’ gear, in descending order of relative (they had or didn’t have the various features of the Beltones) equality/lesser features.
Does anyone have such a chart for discussion? My memory of the entirety is foggy (meaning I can’t rattle off all of the other brands shown), but the Phonak seemed to be the closest match, and the Widex the least. It would be interesting to me to hear from pros on the subject, as I am not yet certain that we’ll succeed in wrestling the Beltones into a functionally-useful-to-me state.
There’s a separate thread discussing my issues here:
So I won’t duplicate that discussion, but I’m interested in what I’d find in reality, in the event that chart is more promotional than revealing…
