It’s an exceptional hearing aid. I just fit a set to a lady on Thursday who was previously wearing SoundLens but they were no longer powerful enough for her. Spent quite a bit of time in her home setting up the Surflink Media (for TV streaming), and her telephone settings. I knew she was going to be very difficult to please, but she was crying with joy by the end of the appointment. I don’t think the size 10 batteries are going to last long at all while streaming, but we’ll see. I don’t see any reason why you shouldn’t be successful with them. However, the RIC is probably going to be more comfortable and provide a better sound quality, but it’s not as discrete of course.
Starkey aids are known for being “hot”- you hear everything. This is a pretty common complaint and it’s something your dispenser can easily adjust. Try the media unit, I think you’ll really like it.
