Long story short: I bought my Oticon Opn miniRITE RIE aids last December with the express understanding that a clip-on streamer would be released for Android devices in Q1 2017 for use with my Samsung cell phone. Well, no surprise that first release date was pushed out to June, which came and went, and now we’re hearing “end of year” (um, which year?) for the so-called release.
Well, I had an app’t with my dear aud-guy yesterday and we both agreed: enough is enough! I feel I’ve been mislead and strung along with promises to deliver a VITAL tool to my total hearing solution. I need the aids, phone streamer and TV streamer - thasssal!
So I’m returning to my aud-guy next month to try out either or both: Resound (some kind of 3rd gen aid that has my critical components) and/or Phonak Audeo-B Direct, which my aud-guy will call to get the new release, as this has just come out.
Can anyone speak to the sound quality, performance, reliability, and overall satisfaction with Resound? My only trial of that last year had me discouraged with VERY poor sound quality. But if it has Android phone streaming and TV streaming, maybe I could just have the frequencies tweaked for better sound?
Any advice here is most welcome. And anyone else in the same boat as me with a completely incomplete Oticon solution, I urge you to BONG your audis for a resolution to this absurd situation! The more of us who send a strong message to Oticon, the better.
