First post and a long question so bear with me. I am getting my second set of hearing aids. I have been using the Phonak Naida Q90 SP for 3 years. With my insurance I am able to get a new set every 3 years with a max dollar amount of $5k. My hearing is considered profound and my audiologist recommended the Phonak Naida V90 size 13 battery. I used these for a week or so and was really surprised on the new sounds I was now hearing. After some adjustments he was able to get the Bluetooth audio through the Compilot 2 to sound really good. I asked to try a set of the Naida B90’s since they were newer technology and my insurance would cover either the Naida V90 or the Naida B90. The Naida B90 work well for speech like the V90’s without any fine tuning (on the V90 & B90 he just basically copied over my settings from the Q90’s as a baseline and then once I decide which aids I would rather go with we will fine tune them). But getting the Bluetooth audio on the B90’s to sound as good as the V90’s has been difficult even when the exact same settings were copied over to the B90’s Bluetooth audio mode. The B90’s seem to be lacking in, for lack of better words, a fullness that has a rich bass and mid’s without so much of a high tinny, in a can sound (if that makes sense).
My question is this:
•Is there a significant difference between the Naida V90 & B90 both using the 13 battery?
•What terms should I use or say that would help my audiologist better adjust the Bluetooth audio on the B90’s for the rich sound I am after that is present in the V90’s?
I feel I should probably go with the B90’s because it’s newer tech and my insurance will cover either pair I choose, but I am open to suggestions. I have done a search and read for hours but still can’t really find what I’m looking for. Advise from experienced wearers us appreciated.
Thanks to all
