Thanks for the information. I agree with much of your review. I tried the Resound and the Bernafon in the store before I chose the Resound. I have the 2015 Trax42 now, so I think they are going to be very close to the KS8. My feeling is the feedback control with the Rexton is far less than reliable after 3 years of wearing them, even with custom ear molds.
The sound on the Resound was much more rich than the Bernafon. The fitter said that the Bernafon typically had less power and required stronger receivers to get the same effect as the Resound. The fitter also stated that the customer support from Resound was better than that of Bernafon, so that was another factor. I have only her word on that, so if you feel that is incorrect, I would be interested to know.
I’ll let everyone know how the Resound go. I got the 312 version that doesn’t have T-coil. I can count the number of times I have used t-coil on one hand in the past 8 years, so not important to me. If the battery life sucks, I will switch to the 13 version.
I’ll be on domes for a short time, as the HA’s are going to come before my new ear molds. It is likely that any feedback issues that come up with Resound (if there are any) will be managed by the domes.
Costco has a nice long trial period, so if I don’t like them, I will try the Zerena.
