So I just had my HAs fitted this week - Opn 3’s. I have to say they’re an incredible piece of technology and the improvement for my day-to-day hearing is incredible.
I’ve been playing with the music streaming, though, as I used to listen to music on my commute every day.
The quality isn’t bad at all. Quality when doing voice calls (phone, Skype) seems to be spot-on.
However, streaming music seems to be rather choppy and cuts out a lot. I also notice that my HAs disconnect from my phone on a regular basis, even though my phone is pretty much permanently in my front trouser pocket.
So I have a few questions:
Is this ‘normal’? I understand BT LE doesn’t have a lot of range, but the couple of feet from a pocket to my ears seems not too far. Should it cut out so much?
Would a newer phone help? I use an iPhone SE, primarily due to the size but I’d go back to an X or 8 if the BT streaming would improve.
Would the ConnectClip help? If it improves streaming quality, then I’d happily get one and just use it on my commute or during meetings.
(Opns are on 5.0 firmware, and my iPhone is updated but I tend to avoid the public betas like 12 until they get released).
Any advice welcome!
