Good day, all.
I am new to the forum and just recently posted this question in another area of the forum. However, I thought maybe this might be a better place to get some feedback (no pun intended :o). If there is already information regarding my question, I apologize and would appreciate someone directing me to where it is on the forum. Otherwise…
I am being fitted for hearing aids this month (BTE with open wire that goes into the canal), and due to my unique situation I am limited to using one particular audiologist who I think exclusively uses Starkey HA’s and fully recommends them due to her experiences with the product. However, I was tested three years ago (but did not get hearing aids then) by another audiologist who vehemently said “DO NOT BUY STARKEY HA’s!”. They said that they break constantly and that users have perpetual issues with them. I recently went online and did a search for customer reviews on Starkey HA’s and I found the majority of the reviews from users to be very negative - confirming what I was told by the prior audiologist.
So what has been your experience with this brand, mechanically speaking? Reliable or continually giving you problems with not working correctly?
Thank you kindly for any input, folks.
