Hi, I tried a Phonak HA about 6 years ago and hated the sound quality back then. It probably wasn’t anywhere close to a top of the line model though. But in the same price range I very much preferred the Widex sound back then…
Now I’m trailing the Widex Moment and though I like the sound, the bluetooth has been very unreliable… Often it only streams music to one of the hearing aids… And even if it streams to both, one hearing aid often drops out randomly later. It’s annoying and I don’t like to have to deal with unreliable BS like this.
So when I learned that Phonak has great bluetooth and on top of that also does hands free calls as well (using the mic of the HA to capture your voice) I thought well that sounds awesome. Sounds like a HA that does bluetooth right.
My only concern is that 6 years ago when I tried Phonak I hated the sound, so I’m not sure if it’s worth trying Phonak again considering that. Because I figure that generally the base sound characteristics of a brand don’t change much over the years. At least with Widex that’s my experience.
Hence my question:
How is the Phonak sound quality now vs 6 years ago?
