I’m not only new to the forum, I’m new to hearing aids, so please bear with me. Today, I went to an audi with my father to get him his first pair of hearing aids. He’s a musician and voice actor, so we’ll probably be looking for a versatile solution. The audi showed us the newest Marvel models and the different stages they come in. When I asked whether the difference is “only” in software, she seemed to be unsure but leaned towards yes.
A second factor, of course, is the monetary difference. It’s quite considerable, but to be honest, I would be willing and able to pay for the more expensive version. However, I’m afraid that paying more will not give me the ability to tinker with the setup. And worse, that real tinkering would require an amount of hacking that would make my payment towards the software obsolete.
Basically, I would love to have an under-the-hood access to the device (or as much of it as I can get), because I’m afraid that visits to the audi just wont cut it. (Not because of the audi, but because of the setting.)
All that being said, it might be quite enough if I had access to Phonak Target. There’s no need to re-invent the wheel.
I’d be truly grateful for any tips!
