I picked up my ComPilot on 12/1, so I have two days of use as I write this.
I have been using the icom and MyPilot for about six months. In real life, I found that I usually would not carry the MyPilot, because being a guy the only way to carry it was in my pocket.
The ComPilot has the function of both the icom and MyPilot in one unit. It is slightly longer than the icom, but that does not seem to be an issues with me. The first thing I noticed is the neck cord is detachable on both ends, so if the cord is damaged, only the cord needs to be replaced.
In real life use of the ComPilot, my observations will be based upon comparing to the icom and MyPilot and also to the Oticon Streamer which I trialed for four weeks in April 2011.
The ComPilot Bluetooth stays connected to my cellphone. I often had dropouts with the other products. Family members say that the ComPilot sounds better that the other products when I talk to them using the ComPilot connected to a cell phone. Based upon sound quality for the person on the other end of the telephone, I have been told my people that I talk to, the ComPilot is sounds best, followed by the icom, with the Streamer sounding poorest of the three.
I played music from my cell phone using bluetooth and then had a phone call. The ComPilot handled it well without getting confused. I am happy with the sound quality of the ComPilot for listening to music. It is not as good as quality headphones, but we have to be realistic that the signal is going through Bluetooth, then though another connection from the ComPilot to the hearing aids.
I picked up the ComPilot early 12/1. I returned to my audi at the end of the day (she is a very patient person) to make changes to the ComPilot program. If you use the icom, you are aware that there is a beep when the icom connects for a phone call and a beep to disconnect. The ComPilot has a default feature where instead of a beep, it will talk to you telling you that you are connected. In my case, when the phone would start ringing, it would say "ComPilot Galaxy S, which is saying that the ComPilot is connecting to my Galaxy S cell phone. I did not like that, so I had the voice announcement turned off and the beeps turned on. You might like the voice announcement better, but fortunately, it is selectable in the Target software.
The only thing that is a negative, is there is a large button on the front of ComPilot that is used to switch the hearing aid program. This button is slightly recessed, but it is still too easy to push by mistake. When it happens, I just press it a few more times to cycle back to my automatic program.
The literature with the ComPilot says that it uses Bluetooth 2 and that it has two directional microphones on the side, to reduce unwanted sounds going into the ComPilot.
Overall, I am totally happy with the ComPilot. This is something that I expect to wear most of the time. If I had the buying decision to do over, I would definitely buy the ComPilot again.
