we are about to buy new hearing aids for my 11 year old. He has a bilateral sensorineural loss that is moderately severe to severe.
He currently uses digifocus II. His audiologist is going to order in a set of the Naida sp but says they won’t be in until June/July time frame. Now that he’s older I want him to have some input and choices in what he gets. The other one she wants to try is Tego Pro Power.
I was wondering if there is anything newer than the Tego that has enough power for his severe loss. When I asked her about Epoq she said -
The Epoq is NOT for S. It has only up to 115dB of gain (not enough for S; it puts him at the bottom of the fitting range of the aid); it is not FM compatible; it is fragile; and it cost approximately $1700+ per aid.
How about the Vigo? Does it have a super power option and FM compatibility?
