About myself: I dont have any hearing loss but due to an acoustic trauma a high pitch tinnitus. Over the years the best option to cope has become playing soothing sounds over the app “relax melodies”, using only one earpiece. To have that as an option in any social situation (so decent) is my goal, so people dont think I am constantly listenting to music while talking to them. I have focussed on the Linx2 (model5). Mind you, I basically only use them as a hidden mp3 behind the ear headphone. I got an Ipod and stream the app sounds over bluetooth.
I have to say, the sound is very tinny. After reading quite some threads (forgive me I cant possibly go through each single one) here I realized I am not alone with this criticism, however it was never fully resolved what to do, or if the current Halo from Starkey does it better. Both questions, but especially the latter one, a comparison of the streaming sound quality between Halo and Linx2 would be appreciated. The resound EQ isnt really an option for me, since it doesnt seem to be available when using only one earpiece. I will try different domes, that should help a little. Since I read that some people actually use the Halo for music listening I assume they must be better- listening to music on the Linx2 seems impossible due to the poor sound quality over all frequencies.
I’ll try to get my hands on the Halo but I dont know yet if they are available in my hometown or around.
