I think our professionals including our professional you are referring to offer great insight for all of us, both consumers and professionals.
It has always been my intention that this forum provide unbiased opinions and I will absolutely block anyone who uses this forum to promote their own company, particularly if they are affiliated with a particular manufacturer.
In this case, if you look at the recommendations and really understand the business, I believe his/her recommendations are very accurate. This is based on my own observations and immersion in the hearing aid industry for the last 8 years.
Of course, it is up to you to form your own opinions and beliefs. Yet, I would appreciate it if we can keep this forum very civilized and respectful of each other and their opinions.
