Hi, I’m new to the forum and have been reading it quite a bit over the last several days and am grateful to have found all this experience. I have moderate loss, ski slope, about 40 db loss in the speech range and am about to be fitted with my first HA. My audio has recommended the Sonic Innovations Ion (BTE open ear) although I might switch to the Ion 400. I’ve done a search and noticed that the Ions hardly get mentioned although they seem pretty cool as far as comfort and features and size. these are the only small BTE that my audio recommends even though she also offers Resound, Phonak, Oticon and more. I couldn’t get a solid reason why other then she says it’s just better and was wondering if someone could shed light on this.
Does anyone wear Ions or have any opinion on them with regard to noise reduction and speech intelligibility and sound quality?
