I’ve been reading some posts and realize I’m fairly uneducated regarding audiological terms, and way off in tech terms compared to your discussions, so bear with me.
I’m looking for a BT mic that I can use either with my KS4 HAs or purchase new KS7 HAs, or I’m open to purchasing any other brand that best utilizes something that will work for me. When I purchased my KS4 HAs four years ago I used, as a trial, the Mini Blu and Speech Connect. They didn’t work for me for a couple of reasons. One is that I had issues getting them to pair consistently. Another is that the mic needed to be very close to the speaker. My aud thought it would be perfect, but my work situation is such that I have speakers coming in and out of the room, and cannot simply attach a mic to them. I need a mic that can sit on my desk and pick up voices of several people who are mainly within 10-15 feet of me.
I am trying to educate myself on Phonak’s Roger pen and/or Roger table mic, as well as ReSound’s micro mic or multi mic. I read here in comments that the Naida V90 has a built-in receiver for these BT items. That would be nice. Does the Cala have the same option? However, I’m most interested in what people have used that have worked the best. My environment isn’t noisy, but I can and do travel at times and so it’s not entirely consistent.
My hearing issues with work have recently become worse due to the addition of a softer speaking person as the main speaker. I assumed I was the only person having difficulty, but I realize others are asking him to repeat fairly often, or leaning around others for a better hearing position. My main location has a sound system, but it’s fairly normal for it to be turned off due to feedback, or speakers turning the mic away from them, or simply walking around the room That’s why I am again looking into a BT mic. for my desk.
I need to obtain a copy of my most recent audiogram, but it hasn’t changed that much over the years. The one I have from 2011, if I’m doing this right, is:
25 30 45 65 50 55 60 35
35 35 50 65 55 55 55 ? (can’t tell what the last one is)
Any and all thoughts, opinions, experiences are welcome.
