I’m currently trialing the Oticon OPN1 & the Starkey Livio A1. I’ve actually already paid for the Starkeys and am still able to return them but that option will expire soon. I thought I should try the Oticons side by side to compare them but it’s not as easy as I thought it would be to just switch back and forth from one to the other.
The Oticons are $1000 more than the Starkeys. I THINK I can understand speech a bit better but it’s hard to say got sure whether it’s worth the extra $$$.
I’ve been wearing HA for 3-4 years now. I play guitar and within the past 6 months I’ve lost the ability to hear the instrument. I can hear something is being played by me but I can’t tell if it’s what I want to be playing.
I THINK the Oticons help me to hear it a bit better but again it’s hard to say for sure.
Is there anyone out there who has compared both of these models?
