I made an appointment to get a hearing test at Costco. There are three HAs which I am not sure which one to trial. They are the KS7, Cala 8 and the Brio 2. I was told by the audi on my initial phone call that the only one that will stream to my Iphone is the Cala 8. Don;t I have to have a phone clip to do this? I noticed that the Brio 2s can do this with the ComPilot Air. I do want to be able to take phone calls during my trips to and from work and the quality be good.
My old audi that fitted the Phonak Audeo Smart IIIs said he would supply me with the Phonak b3s but I was interested in the Signia BT13 3px ($2600) because of the streaming into my Iphone. Does the Cala 8 also need to have the phone clip?
My question is do I spend the same amount of money $2600 for the Signia BT13s and get a newer generation chip or am I better to get one of the Costco premium HAs but one generation lower?
No matter what I get, I’m sure they will be as good if not better than my current older Phonaks. I would prefer an aid that does not sound “tinny”. Thanks again for all of your help.
