anything that helps me understand. I like Phonak. how much better is naida B UP? it has to be better for me to get it. I don't want to get something to same as my S UP. how do other brands compare? maybe I need an updated software on mine. will that help?I looked at some of your older posts and see that you were wearing the Naida S UP. Not sure how that compares with a Naida B UP, but that one seems to be the go to aid in the Phonak line for severe/profound loss.
Have you been happy with Phonak? Or are you looking to switch brands? Or are there specific features or accessories that you require?
Most of those questions are probably best for your audiologist. As far as the comparison from the S UP to the B UP, I could not say as I've only (recently) gotten the B. And this is my first high power aid.anything that helps me understand. I like Phonak. how much better is naida B UP? it has to be better for me to get it.

how does oticon sound compared to phonak in the speech areaI know you like Phonak, but Oticon Opn plus power is really cool (and internet connected too, check that out too) *yes, I love to be trendy here LOL*
but yeah, looking forward to this after my birthday too
FYI, OPN goes up to 105 if you're not bad as the others but their Dynamo goes up to 110 if that's optional too if you want to go small
What do you think about phonak even though you may not have tried it? I wear the early version of Phonak nadia up. 5-8 years now, I think. the watertight seals in battery compartment is a joke. the gasket turned gel like thick cream. epic failure of all time. What was phonak thinking? I had Oticon sumo years ago. the highest frequency I've heard in my life were on oticons. I guess I heard borderline feedback on high frequency sounds. maybe more like how jimmy Hendrix liked his sounds wailing with feedback. maybe it was the borderline feedback I was able to hear represented the high frequencies. I couldn't deal with too much of that but it was louder in the high frequency range. I had a friend who stopped using her cochlear implant for most of her life. she couldn't stand to salt pouring over the table. I'll do anything to hear that but maybe I wouldn't like it either.I use to have Starkey and now have Oticon's with a remote that I have hanging off my neck that I use many times a day to adjust to hearing people and to adjust to environment sounds. The remote is simply the best. The difference between the Starkey, is the sound is more natural. With the Oticon the sound is different somehow, yet clearer and louder than the Starkey, at least for me it is? Starkey may have improved their product since I had them, but that is my opinion between the two? Nothing though is perfect but it's better than without?
