I see that Signia claim to offer a special HD Music feature, as well as Extended Dynamic Range, and Extended Bandwith. Rexton-KS say Music Enhancer and Dynamic Extender. The Music feature is said to have three options; playing live music, listening to recorded music, listening to live music. Signia even have a demo video/audio of the feature. The music options all sound better than the “Universal” program in comparison, but I’m not sure that most of it isn’t just more gain.
I don’t play live music, and I seldom go to live music shows, so it would seem that the recorded music option would suit me the best? Has anyone compared the live music to recorded music feature using hearing aids with these options? What do you think? Does the Music feature already have the dynamic range and increased bandwidth built in? It would seem like bandwidth compression and amplitude compression used for speech recognition would be the last thing you would want when listening to music.
Years ago I bought a fairly expensive home music system in the stereo HiFi days, and still have most of my vinyl and CD’s of course. I was hoping to gain back some fidelity with HA’s. Pipe dream?
