Profound hearing loss hearing aids


About 8 years ago I was fitted with Widex Senso P-38 BTEs, for my profound loss. These are power or super power aids and use a 675/blue battery.

Now, I have had 3 different Audiologists suggest a power aid, all are different but all use a 13/orange battery.

Now I know that just battery size alone is not the end factor for this, but has the power side of things changed that much in 8 years?

Here is what was recommended:

Starkey Destiny 1600
Phonak Savia Art 411
Resound Azure 80

All are BTE, all will use a typical custom earmold.
