@youbgone: On your poll, I;d be under #2. When I went in for my first Aud appointment, one of the things I mentioned was that I needed cell phone connectivity and hands free functionality because of the amount of time I spend on the road each day. We also discussed the importance of music and the quality of sound vs. just the quantity of sound, along with some other thoughts and concerns. Based on this, she fitted me with a pair of Widex HAs along with a ComDex streamer to test. I paired the HAs and connected the ComDex and installed the app. After testing, I ended up with Widex Beyond 330s and both the Beyond app and the ComDex app.
The rest has been pretty much on me. And really, isn’t that how it should be? After all, while the Aud is the expert on HAs and hearing loss, WE should be responsible for learning and understanding the basic (and sometimes not so basic) ways those HAs interface with OUR other wireless devices. We are, after all, working with a hearing specialist, not a cell phone tech. because of that, I’ve learned the ins and outs of both apps that i use (yes, they both do a lot of the same things, but each app is better at some things than the other). As a matter of fact, if I had any complaints at all, it would be that the app developers didn’t seem to talk to each other during app development. The Beyond app attempts to recreate the wheel compared to the ComDex app, but I suspect that they would have had a much better product if the dev teams worked together.
