A few months ago I placed my first post regarding help in determining a quality HA and got some great response regarding Starkey and Oticon. My biggest concern was the cost of $4500-$5000 that I was receiving locally. Today I talked with a HA dispenser(?) who is a friend of my son and he suggested I first try the Resound Pixel at $2700 set and if they don’t work well he would then suggest the Starkey Destiny 1200 at just over$3000. His concern is if an open ear will work based on the numbers I have supplied with out feedback due to the high freq. loss. I told him I do not want a closed ear type. I am not familiar with the REsound and wonder if anybody has any comments or suggestions. The price is great as he will do this as a side job for a friend of the family and I want to move forward ASAP.
Test results: R/E 250 10, 500 10, 1000 25, 2000 45, 3000 85, 4000-8000 90. L/E 250 10, 500 10, 1000 20, 2000 50, 3000 70, 4000-8000 75. My audiologist said the the biggest concern was the Speech Discrimination score with the RE @ 80db 48% and LE 80db 88%.
