Hey folks, I’ve spent a bit of time on here reading up on the phonak marvels and what people’s experiences have been.
My situation is that I currently wear cic starkey s-series. They are getting old, my hearing has deteriorated, and so I visited my audi who ran the tests, recommended marvels, and gave me a limited first fit demo.
My initial impressions were that they were awesome and the Bluetooth streaming was a killer feature. But since then I have come to understand that it can only pair to a single device at once.
I’m an IT manager in an open plan office environment and spend most of my day on a Cisco softphone on my laptop or answering calls on my iPhone XR. Whatever hearing aid I pick has to seamlessly cope with switching between those 2 devices and talking to people in the office.
And hear is where I could do with some help given the marvel limitations. Should I get the marvels and supplement with some other tool (roger pen or likewise?) so that I get around the pairing issue? Should I wait until a firmware update around Q3 that may extend the capabilities? Should I look at other options (resound quattros?). Should I wait for a bit? (The starkeys have some life left still). And there may be other options I don’t know about.
But if you folks could give me some ideas about how to proceed that would be awesome as I’m definitely in procrastination mode right now!!
