New user and I’d like to hear your thoughts on my hearing aid selection.
First, I’ll load my hearing test when I get a copy, but I have mild to moderate hearing loss in a “cookie bite” shape.
Second, I really just want to hear and understand conversations better and/or clearer. I’d also love the ability to stream podcasts and maybe some music too. After reading some forum responses I’m beginning to think that streaming “quality” music sound might be asking too much from hearing aids, but I do listen to a lot of podcasts which would be nice.
Third, apparently I have pretty good insurance and my out of pocket will be approximately the same for whatever hearing aid I choose.
So, I’ve narrowed it down (so far) to the Widex Evoke 440 or the Resound Quattro. I’ve read more about the Resound Linx 3D so the Quattro looks promising. I also like the Resounds integration with iPhone and apple watch. Don’t have the apple watch yet, but I’m thinking about adding it to my Christmas list. My audiologist recommended the Evoke 440 and said the sound quality is noticeably better. I haven’t seen to much about the iPhone app or integration though, led alone apple watch integration.
So, is there a third hearing aid I should be looking at too? I’d love to hear about everyones favorite hearing aids and why.
I’ve got some other questions, but I’ll keep the topics separate.
