Whisper - I spoke with Whisper and…

Whisper is definitely on to something with the outboard, wireless sound processing, but…

At this time Whisper does not offer any ALD’s nor do they have a telecoil - so it’s a closed system that can’t support ALD’s or loops installed in theaters and other venues.

I live in downtown Dallas Texas and do not have access to an audiologist who can program them or fit a custom ear mold. They do have a remote programming system.

My assessment is that they maybe superior for speech in noise processing, but they’re targeted at those with a moderate hearing loss.

I really support their concept, but it needs to mature and expand before it will be useful to those of us with greater hearing loss.
