I’ve been trying the Brio 2’s, and my 60 days are almost up, so I have to make a decision. I’ve got mild to moderate hearing loss, this is the first time I’ve worn a HA, and I’m wedded to my iPhone SE (iOS 11.2.2). Aside from the Compilot which I HATE, these are the problems that annoy me:
When I end a call via the Compilot, there is an instant and persistant background noise similar to an open line, or running water. It does eventually go away. Turning off the Compilot does nothing.
There are periods of feedback type noises that I have not been able to relate to anything in the environment. It is sometimes so loud as to be disruptive.
Fabric rustling and crinkling sounds are loud and annoying.
Are these problems I could have with any HA, or are they specific to the ones I have now?
Next to improved hearing, what I want is to have real hands free (no streamer) for calls and music, and tinnitus masking. I have an appointment to check out the Phonak Audeo Direct B70, but have read a few bad reviews on it. Is there anything else that can do what I want?
