I have had two recent hearing tests, one from an audiologist and the other from a licensed hearing specialist. My audiogram was about the same for both tests, ranging from 50-80 db loss at all frequencies, increasing at the higher frequencies. The audiologist recommended the Starkey S Series 9 and the hearing specialist the Starkey S Series 5. I am new to this forum and have been wearing hearing aids for over 20 years, currently older model Unitrons. Can anyone tell me what makes the 9 better than the 5 (it costs more). I do not need any of the wireless technology features.
