Hi, everyone! I’m new here, and I have already have read many topics here about hearing aids, but i’m still pretty lost.
I use Widex Senso ( C18+), I can’t remember for how long time, but i’m pretty sure that at least 10 years have passed since I exchanged my aids for the last time.
Although I’m very happy with them and didn’t notice any troubles, I’m considering buying a new pair, since so much has changed in the last years and the technology seems to be way more advanced now. Here in my country (Brazil), the most common brands are Phonak, Widex and Siemens.
Wireless devices are not important for me, I don’t think I’d use it. I’m most concerned with: resistance (my Senso, for example, has never broken or been severely damaged, and I use it all the time, walking, running, in the rain, in the summer [which is very hot here where I live], and I sometimes do let them fall on the floor etc) and quality of sound (by the way, one complaint about Senso is that music, sometimes, gets kind of noisy).
So, my questions are:
- I know i’ts not up to you to know, but do you guys think it’s worth to change my aids or should I keep with my Senso?
- Between Phonak, Siemens and Widex, what do you, individually, prefer? I’ve noticed that people around here seem to prefer Phonak, but I’ve never heard of them before.
If anyone can answer this, I’d be very, very thankful. I’m willing to be able to help you guys also, in the future. On this Thursday I’m gonna try one of Siemens (I don’t know which one yet, I’m gonna se with the audiologist), and I intend to post a review here.
Thank you! (and sorry for any mistakes in my english)
