I’ve wanted to ask this question for the last day or so. Did forum search and Google search for the Starkey Livio AI 2400 hearing aid, couldn’t find anyone that’s wearing or has tried the Livio AI. Does anyone have it or tried it? Is it everything it’s been advertised to be? Is it worth the price?
Due to hearing loss in one ear. I need to get the best hearing aid for my remaining nerve damaged ear, but I can hear with a hearing aid. I haven’t tried a BiCros because I need the bluetooth. Phonak’s don’t have it. My last hearing aids I bought in 2017 are Oticon OPN 2 and I can hear with them, but they are too quiet. I tried to have them re-programmed last week (not where I bought them), at the audiologist where my new ENT is. I knew I would have to pay a fee to have this done, but the audiologist said there’s no difference between my hearing test in 2018 and now in my left ear and wouldn’t make any adjustments, nor would she update the software version stating there wasn’t any difference between the version 4 and 6.1 software. Uh, wrong. There’s that Hearing Fitness part of the app and if I want to use a ConnectClip, I can’t use it on version 4. She seemed hurried and rude. I’ve decided to go back where I bought them tomorrow to have them cleaned and update/do any re-programming.
I will add I’ve been able to get a free 2 week trial of a Phonak Marvel M90 aid. The battery version last week and rechargeable this week so I can trial Roger Select for work. The tech is different between the OPN and Marvel aid (plus the Marvel is two years newer), but my OPN’s have a bass 2 vent dome and there is a bass power double dome on the M90 so that may also be part of the difference. The M90 are way better for me and speech recognition is better. Before I commit, I want to make sure I’m making the best choice for me.
