I was wondering if anyone can help give feedback of the newest power BTE hearing aids you are wearing. I have a severe to profound hearing loss since birth in both ears and currently wearing Phonak Supero 413 AZ HA’s - both ears. My research has not been very successful finding hearing aids best for the types of frequency loss, contrary to the fact there seems to be more information HA’s for high frequency loss than low frequency loss. I would like to know/hear more about power aids best suited when low frequency loss outweighs the high frequency loss (My loss is about 80% in both ears).
My opinion of Phonak hearing aids is that they are powerful in loudness but that’s about it. I have spent several years sending my aids back due to repairs needed on the telecoil, microphone, and amplifier. Phonak has been good to replace all parts which I get practically receive a new hearing aid each time. Oddly enough, when one HA goes out the other does too, for the same repair. I use the phone a lot in an office so I need power aids that have strong telecoils and can produce sounds that feel more natural rather than hearing that “microphonic” amplification. It feels like people are talking to me from the old '50’s radio box. Yes, these are digital HA’s, and during a period of five years, these Phonak hearing aids have not been able to keep up with me. Any feedback or suggestions on other positive HA’s is certainly appreciated.
