I’ve had mine for about a month. Had Phonak Audeo q90’s, with the ComPilot previously.
“Live Music” setting is far superior for hearing what is going on when I play acoustic guitar. The Audi was never able to fix the terrible sound I was getting in that situation with the Phonaks.
The “Music at home/tv” does work well for just that - much better clarity while watching TV without a remote mic.
Better “in noise” performance - noisy restaurants, etc. Just last night I was pleased to hear my wife clearly at dinner, while she was the one asking “What?” all the time, for once.
I hear a slight background “hiss” in all settings (except Auditorium - see below) if there is even faint ambient noise, louder as the volume is increased. Techs at Costco are stumped. My theory is mic gain is too high, while the amplifier to the speakers is too low, but that doesn’t seem to compute with what the 2 different techs seem to understand about how to configure the HA’s. Maybe I am just hearing even more than I did before with the Phonaks.
Streaming volume and reproduction is terrible, except in the “Auditorium (Telecoil)” setting, where it is acceptable. Not as good as the Phonaks, but I accept that no HA can be the equivalent of good headphones. The Auditorium setting turns off the mics, so poor for hearing the outside world, and can produce an electronic humm in some situations. I’ve been told it is not really for use except with a telecoil. Unknown whether there is a program like it that is optimized for streaming.
