My mother, who is 84 years old, has lost 45 -50% of her hearing, mostly in the high frequency range. Miracle Ear at Sears suggested the ME750 BTE with 4 channels, feed back cancellation, and noise reduction. It is on sale now for $3,498 a pair (with her insurance).
At Costco, she tried the Rexton Revo Open Fit, while browsing around the store. It is selling for $3,499 a pair. She liked them in the store and felt “deaf” when she gave them back. They seem to have more features that the ME 750, like Sound Smoothing, Directional Microphones, and Wind Screen technology.
Miracle Ear is very service oriented, with service visits recommended every 4 monts. Is that really necessary? Does the Rexton Revo need that much attention?
Who makes the ME 750? I know that Siemens make the Rexton. We are leaning towards the Rexton. Would this be the best choice of the two?
