Every customer should be able to pick out/get what they want. I grew up wearing Phonaks. I've tried Oticon for a short while, didn't like it and went back to Phonak. Some people just cannot tolerate a different company because their products are just going to sound different and be more difficult to get used to, and would rather stick with what they know works best for them.
Voc rehab told me to get what I wanted or what I thought was best for me. I picked resound but my audio(bitch) convinced me that starkey was better. I regret trusting her since I'd been with her since I was 9 years old. I will be getting resound again when I can afford to.
