Two questions - Since direct streaming has been out for a while why do other competing HA manufactures still push a connect clip or device you have to wear (as a link) to direct streaming? You would think everyone would be on the same page here - since direct streaming would be the preference of most HA users. One less thing to worry about, one less thing to buy.
With that said are there some benefits of using a connect clip for streaming versus direct? Also which of the two actually has the best connection? I’m just puzzled why half the HA manufactures push direct streaming while the other half still seem to be tied to connect clip.
Also seems to be that HA manufactures going the connect clip route might be doing so to make extra sales on the connect clip itself - though I don’t know how much that device costs. To me life would be easier if we all could compare apples to apples (HA performance wise - cost wise) versus this game of wear a clip or stream directly.
