In the next few days I am going to be ordering some new hearing aids. I currently have a 5 year old pair of Resound Air CICs that seem to be going down hill (have had them repaired twice). I have been researching for a new pair and think I would like Siemens Pure 500 or 700 CICs, but I have noticed the Motions 500 or 700 models seem to be the same thing. I am wondering which is the newer model and which you would choose if price were not a factor.
I have been searching the forum here tonight and have seen alot of post about speech recognition problems and tuning difficulty of these HAs. These post seem fairly old (2008) and I am wondering if tuning has improved over the past couple years. I am planning on purchasing from a place that is a two hour drive and am now fairly worried about this aspect, as I have never been to this person (the price is great, so I was willing to give him a try). Will having a TEK help me get the HAs to a point I can enjoy them if this new tuner doesnt work out so well?
Thanks for any insite,
