Phonak Naida S lll UP

Just got it today. What a change over my ITE aids. The bluetooth function is especially awsome. I can now talk over the phone. Busy telling my friends to just call me. No more tedious texting. Aid came with one preset program, {automatic}.. I asked audi to give me one program with all the sounds magnified, {deer hunting}. She did. Spent over an hour figgering out how to make my phone sync with the compilot. I did not bring any instrutions for the phone with me. She finally figgered out the notifications chime had to be set to silent. So we ran out of time for more programming. I am on the 30 day tryout period. I am set to go back in ten days for another programming session. I love this HA. Getting my life back. Anyone else got this HA?

Yes it is a very big jump. I have power to spare. I had to get the audi to turn the volume down from where it was set from the manufacturer. I love the Compilot too. It is a god send to be able to answer a call without digging my phone out of my pocket. My speech comprehension also took a big jump. Being able to remotely control the volume with the Compilot is also a very big improvement. Adjusting both left and right volume at the same time is also a feature I like. Looking forward to seeing how many more improvements can be had with the Naidias. I will post more after the next programing session.

Good to always have power to spare. My left is maxed out with my right not far behind. Would love a more powerful aid.

I'm getting the Naida S V UP in September. It has the zoom which will help me big time!

Not sure, but I think mine has the zoom. I know it cuts background noise out almost completely. But then I have not been in a crowded restaurant either.
Getting more comfortable with my Naidia.

Zoom is where you need a my pilot to access and you can zoom in to the front, back, left or right.

You don't have zoom control on the III S UP as thats what I have now and it doesn't.

What you are talking about is sound flow and speech in noise.

daZ? Digital audio zoom? It just does it by itself.

The IX's can be programmed so the wearer can select to "zoom right" or "zoom left". So, if I'm driving with my window down and have trouble hearing my daughter (and want to hear her ), I could "zoom right" and it would mute my left HA so all sounds come just to my right ear.

I haven't used it much myself, but have my HAs set up to do it if I find a need.

It's completely different to digital auto zoom as LoveBlue says.

Pre spice, the IX only has it and the spice range, the V and IX has it.

To access it fully you need a my pilot.

Conversely, you could zoom left and miss the stuff you didn't want to know.

You would only zoom left if you were sat next to someone on the train and they were on your left for example. You would hear them better. There wouldn't be anything else that you would need to hear whiles you were talking.

Or use the mute program...which I have used probably more than I have the zoom.

She meant that I could zoom left and miss, on purpose, anything my daughter, on my right, was talking about.

It's only mutes you micophones but you would get the sound through on both sides. For example if you zoom left, it would mute the right micophones but you have what is being said on the left thought both aids.

Found a chart and of course you are right. I do have the resound feature I believe, but not the sound relax or wind noise reducer. However at 30 mph on my tractor, which is open, I do not get any wind noise. I was surprised at that. I just could not afford the V. I just also upgraded my eyeglasses too, $500.00 dollars worth, {Zeiss lenses}. These HA's are such an improvment over my old ones, don't know if I could stand the lX. One thought. The nadia s lll UP I got does not come with but one card of #13 batteries. Instructions do not list features. I had to research to find out. Compilot manual is more pages than hearing aids. Blue tooth performance is outstanding.

I thought the UP took 675 batteries, do you have the SPs?

The HAs I received are indeed SPs. I got my magnifer out and on the inside bend it says sp lll. I was quoted UPs. The waiver I signed to take the 30 day trial says up. The price quote was for UPs. There just might be a hot time at the audi's place of business Monday morning. Thank all of you for that heads up. Very glad I found out now. I will get back to you all on this.

btw....you say you don't think you could stand the IX's, I'm assuming (which is always a bad idea) you talking about amplification? The III V and IX don't have differences in power, but in levels of technology, so they get more expensive the further up you go.

I have no idea if there's a difference in price in the SP III and the UP III, the tech is the same, but the UP, ultra power, are more powerful than the SP, super power.

Price won't be any different between the SP and UP. Only between the III, V, IX.

A lot of people like the UP better as the battery last so much longer as they are bigger. Alto my 675's batteries only last a week.

Your loss may not fit the UP.

I would say it depends on how fast you're losing hearing. If you think you'll be in the range for the UP's before your SP's "die" or you have the $$, I'd say get the UPs and just make sure they're fitted/programmed for your current loss.
I think one of my ears was still in the SP range but I went UP on both to allow for added gain as I lose more hearing.

If your loss allows you to get the UP I would anyway as batteries last longer and you will have a bit more power if you were to loose more hearing.

I can understand then making the SP as some people do want smaller aids but the different in power is so tiny and different in size is so small, that I would always get UP myself even if I fitted in to the SP power range.

Does it say Naida S III SP inside the bend of your aid? If it jut says Naida III SP then it's not the spice range.

HA says Naidia s lll sp. Don't know much about hearing except I don't very well.
My hearing report is as follows on the chart:
250 78db
500 80db
1000 80db
2000 90db
3000 off the chart 115db
4000 115db
5000 105db
8000 90db
Right ear CNT
Left ear 90
I don't know what exactly all this means. I welcome all comments. I am assuming the audi consulted with Phonak? Or does the manufacturer just send what is ordered? Trying to give audi benefit of doubt, but if it was a mistake why didn't she tell me? I intend on having these HAs for a long time. Feedback is non existant. I forget they are in my ear pretty easily. Speech over bluetooth is clear as a bell, I can talk on phone and comprehend for first time in ten years. Happy with everything so far except that I did not get what was on quote and fact the waiver I signed also is listed as UP. All comments welcome.

I would go with the UP for sure as your loss at 3000 is slighly off the fitting range for the SP anyway.

You have a cookie bite loss/ski slope to a degree which is classed a severe to profound looking at your results.

You will have better battery life with the UP

You have the right to change them. Stick to your guns if Audi says no SP is fine. You are the one paying and as you say, you want them for a long time.

What colour did you choose??
