I currently have 8 yr old Siemens CIC aids. Satisfactory, but reading all the hype about new open ear.
My audiologist (where I purchased the Siemens) now recommends Phonak.
She is recommending the Savia @ $5,000 pr or Eleva @ $4,000 pr. I have done considerable research on this and other websites, including Phonak, and understand that these are in the very top tier of aids in most peoples opinion.
My question, though, is whether the Savia is worth $1,000 more than the Eleva. In reading the specs, I find only a very few features on the Savia not on the Eleva. (mainly a wind noise blocker and maybe a little better feedback reducer). The operating specifications seem to be identical.
Does anyone have an opinion on this choice?
