This post is especially for Phonak users and/or dispensers,
Even though my Audi recommends Oticon (see the Audiologists vs hearing aid stores - #25 by gorgeguy thread) I’ve decided to go with Phonak.
I want it to work with my Android phone and tablet. Because of my business, I can’t do iPhone/Apple because to transfer the files from Windows to Apple takes too much time.
So I need to go armed with what I want.
What kind of programs are available? **
** I definitely need music.
** Also speech.
** Is there more than one speech, like one for noisy places?
** Any other programs I may want?
How about a remote mic? I’ve read about a “pen”. Anything better?
I’ve read about speaker domes and one that can be either open and/or closed. Is that worth it? I do fine with closed domes.
If I’m listening to something on the Phonak via Bluetooth, does it mute out everything else, or does the mic on the aids mix with the Bluetooth input?
Anything else I should know that is important to you and and might be important to me?
I’ve had ReSounds and Oticons so far, and from what I’ve read, for my situation and amount of hearing loss, the Phonak aids seem to be my best bet.
