I currently wear Phonak’s Supero 413AZ BTE. I did trial a Naida IX a couple years ago shortly after it was released, and I didn’t much care for it. Found the Naida to be buggy and problematic. So I went back to the Supero. Have had the Supero for 6 years now, and am wondering about Oticon’s Sumo. Anyone know what the sound quality is like with a Sumo? How it compares to the Supero? Just curious. I’m going to see if I can trial a Sumo next month. Has the Naida improved any since its release? I see they’ve released a new version (X?), but does it work better (as in less buggy/less glitches, not turning off/shutting down/restarting on its own, etc.)? Have an appointment for June 19, would like to get some input from you guys before then.
I’ve always worn Phonak hearing aids, ever since I was nearly 3 years old. I’ve never had a hearing aid from a different manufacturer, and am curious to try different manufacture’s products. (am still trying to get cochlear implant for left ear which is my dead ear, medicaid just being a bit difficult; but still keeping hearing aid in right ear). I’m considering a new hearing aid since my Supero has had a few problems recently that needed to be dealt with (battery cover broke for the first time ever; T-coil programming quit working overnight, hearing aid itself slowly getting battered up from 6 years of daily use, feedbacking issues). I do remember noticing some feedbacking with the Naida; how does Oticon/Sumo’s feedback control work?
