I have been reading this forum for a couple of weeks now and I really enjoyed the good “feedback” and information that can be found here.
I have been wearing hearing aids for about 10 years now. My first pair were behind the ear with a closed fitting. Although I wore them for about seven years I never had a good day with them.
In August of 2005:rolleyes: bought a pair of Siemens Acuris Life BTE with an open fittiing. I truly loved the lack of discomfort although I had some difficulty understanding especially in a noisy situation.
I recently tried out a pair of Starkey Dynasty 1200 BTE with the receiver in the ear. I liked the natura sound they provided and I particularly liked they’re ability to suppress unwanted sounds in a noisy environment. They were much better than the Siemens in both the hearing quality and the ability to suppress noise like say in a restaurant.
I returned them to the provider because I felt like $5,000 for two of them was too much.
Yesterday I was fitted with a pair of Rexton Revo Plus BTE with RIC at Costco’s for a price of $3100 for two with a 60 day trial period. Although it is too soon to make a judgment just yet it does appear that the Starkey’s have a more natural sound quality.
I understand that the Rexton is similar or identical to the Siemens Centra Active.
I have moderate to severe hearing loss, mostly in the upper frequencies.
Just wondering if there is anyone on this board that has experience with these three AIDS or suggestions on others that I might look at.
