I think it’s still too early to make a call on AI hearing aids since we’re still in the early innings of development. With that said it appears Starkey was first out the blocks pumping AI HA technology. Maybe Oticon was second but I don’t think either aids have set the world of fire. Not sure when Phonak plans to jump on the band wagon but I’m sure in 2024 we see something from the Swiss company.
I guess the major question is will aid manufactures pump AI as a major jump in hearing aid technolgy/performance or just more bells and whistles that offer limited benefits? Hopefully in a year or two we start seeing new aids that reflect “major changes” in aid design and performance versus samo-samo.
