I posted a few weeks ago asking about waterproof hearing aids, and aside from the Siemens Aquarius, there didn’t seem to be many options. I visited my audiologist today, and she brought to my attention the H2O series from Phonak.

Though it says Water Resistant, it claims that they are rated to IP67, which is waterproof at 1 Meter for half an hour. This would be AMAZING, especially for sailing. I’m having a hard time finding any information, though, but just wanted to see if anyone’s already trialed it, and what they think of them? My audiologist thinks that they would be perfect for me, but just wanted to get a second opinion before spending a couple grand on them.
I have Profound hearing loss in both ears.
