Just picked up a pair of Oticon More 1’s moving up from OPN S1’s as part of insurance benefit. Initial first impression is good and like others in the forum is that there are “more” and different sounds being focused on.
My experience is that overall things are louder and now i can hear things like the fan in the refrigerator . Speech does sound a little clearer but not sure if this is all due to programming against my old pair of OPN S1’s or if it is new capability. My S1’s went for service when I picked up the More’s and will be able to compare better when they come back.
The key question i have is all around battery life. My S1’s were not rechargeable and a single battery would last 5 days or so. I rely on iPhone and TV streamer (connected to my laptop) for work and can stream a combined 5 or 6 hours (sometimes more) in one working day (including my personal TV watching at night).
A key consideration is whether the batteries will survive an entire day without needing to be recharged particularly when the “return to office” happens and I’m not home all day. I will keep the S1’s as backup so i could always switch to those in an emergency but not looking forward to “battery anxiety”, if that makes sense.
So… what are other’s experiences with the rechargeable More 1 (or S1’s) under heavy streaming? How long is reasonable to expect? The 24 hours advertised in the Oticon web site do not consider heavy streaming.
Many thanks for reading and your input/experience.
