I’ve got Starkey’s WI110’s. They’re a bit older now. I’ve had them for some years. I bought them used. When I got them I took off the custom molds and put on 40DB wires. I’m now at 50DB wires.
My main issue with the used aids - programming them. If I can find a shop to do that, they want $200 each time I come in. I’ve done that 3 or 4 times and I’m just not satisfied. And they don’t want to keep re-programming, but want another $200 each time.
I’m turning here as a solution. Many here have been tuning their own aids. I want to join the gang. I’m wondering, prior to getting set up, if I should look for an easier-to-program aid. Easier - being easier to find software, cheaper to buy what is needed to fine tune them, etc…
So, prior to beginning, I’m wondering which aids are easiest to program. I have access to an Iphone 6S+. I admit, I’ve not kept up with hearing aid development, so I’m reaching out here. Can aids now be programmed via Smart Phones. Am I best off keeping what I’ve got and investing in whatever I need to program these Starkey WI110’s or would it be easier to search for newer used aids. I’m pretty good at that.
Please advise and comment. I need to get up to speed. For sure, my current programming of these Starkey WI110’s is inadequate.
