For the last ten years I have worn the Siemens Music Pro. Hearing in my left went down some so went to see audiologist three months ago and recommended that I look into the Naida line. So for three months I saved my money up and researched the hell out of the hearing aid industry.
In the meantime I was having a hard time understanding people as they talked and said “what?” so many times. I could tell people were starting to avoid me cuz they just got tired of repeating themselves I guess.
So I ordered up the Naida IX SP model a week ago and went to get them couple days ago. Did the hearing test and hearing in left ear went up a little bit!!!:eek: Yay!!! Anyways put on the new aids and I could tell a difference right away. My voice was much louder and the audie’s voice was softer but understandable. Audie knew what she was doing when programming the aids thank heavens!!! There is absolutely no feedback whatsoever.
So I went to see Iron Man 2 that night and I was amazed at how much more words I could understand!!! Before I had to take words and piece them together to understand what the movie was about but this time I did not have to!!! It was great!!! Went to work the next day and rarely did I have to say “what?” to anyone except the people that really talked soft.
So I highly recommend trying these aids if you are in doubt. Oh I also got the ICom to go with it and the bluetooth pairing process was easy. I can talk on my cell phone with no problem!!! People on the other end hear me great as well.:o One day I’ll try to pair up the PC with it as well.
Hope this thread helps anyone who is wondering or considering getting the Naidas. Oh and the whole package costs me $6000 as well. To me it was well worth it!!!
