Yes. I think it was like Abram said, it took a while to load and I didn’t know that.
I think for that price difference you ought to try out the OPN. I agree with MDB that you can probably just do domes. That’d be what I’d try out first before resorting to molds anyway, unless you can reuse the molds on either HA model which I doubt. So it looks like your audi is trying to lock you in up front with the Starkey.
I really never had any issue with feedback on the OPN and my drop off slope is not too far from yours so I don’t expect you to have much feedback issue with the OPN if you go with the bass dome single vent or the power dome as a next step up. I don’t know if the Starkey is really better at handling feedback than the OPN or not, but if you never have any feedback issue with the OPN then what difference does it make, right? So he’s bringing up an issue that may not even be there in the first place as a justification for the Starkey which is kind of odd.
Also his idea of doing molds for you right away seems lot the easy way to cop out for him. It’d cost you the cost for the molds and he wouldn’t have to waste his time trying out the domes for you first so it’s win win for him to force the molds on you.
I’m not shooting down the Starkey but I think for the money difference you ought to try out the OPN as well at the minimum to see for yourself which one you like better like Bruce316 did.
