I recently got a pair of Resound Cala 8 61 RIE’s that I like fine. They’re reasonably comfortable and work reasonably well. I was recently at a large family event and found that no matter what program I used or how I fiddled with settings I was simply unable to hear in a number of settings (crowded church, crowded reception hall, beach).
I’m going to make an appointment at Costco to see about adjustments. However, I notice that they now have the Forte 8, which is pretty much the Linx 3D. I’m well within my return period. Honestly, I’m the sort of person who would probably switch just because the newer ones are newer.
In reading, it’s been hard to tell what the real-world differences are between these models. I know that for the Linx 3D there’s the possibility of remote adjustment. While that would be wonderful given that the only Costco in my state is over an hour away, I doubt Costco is going to get into doing remote adjustments. Are there any other substantive differences between the two lines?
