    I won't claim any expertise, but I disagree that your good word recognition scores make you a marginal candidate for hearing aids. My understanding is that word recognition scores are an indicator...

    The Kirkland KS 7.0 and Rexton Trax 42 are not locked, although little reason to consider Trax 42 that I'm aware of in that KS 7.0 is cheaper and likely superior.

    And "limiter" was my imprecise word usage. I'm not confident of how the how the aids deal with loud sounds, but I'm pretty sure they try to limit noises to a certain decibel level, or perhaps they...

    Hmm. Nothing like that. I have occasional unexplained beeps. Does it stay off/down if you leave it alone? Wonder if some sort of limiter was triggered by loud noise and perhaps it would return to...

    Phonak claims superior SNR for the Roger. Is this not real, or is it perhaps not significant? Am I hearing you (Um bongo) correctly that the hearing aids with bluetooth (either BLE) or with an...

    I'd say the big question is how much do you like and have confidence in the person you are seeing. I'm a little confused. You said insurance will cover all of the cost of the Resounds. Doesn't...

    Sounds like you've got more than your fair share of challenges. I think the worst part of any challenge we face is what we do to ourselves in our own head. The actuality may not be that bad, but we...

    Correct. KS6 made for iPhone. KS7 is not. However, Costco sells the Resound Cala 8 which is made for iPhone. Sells for $2600 or $2800 I believe.

    Couldn't find any info on how much gain variability these provide so I contacted them. 5dB. Not sure if that's + or - 5 db or a total range of 5dB, but it's clearly not enough!

    There's really to know until you try some out. An advantage of getting hearing aids "early" vs "late" is that you preserve the brain's ability to make sense of sounds. People here could also...

    Primax should work with the Signia app as long as your smart phone's OS is compatible. Basically download app, go to setup and it will ask you to scan printed code into the smartphone that will pair...

    It's not the people who aren't speaking clearly; it's your ears. Your hearing is worse than mine under 3000 hz (that's where most speech is) and mine make a lot of difference with understanding my...

    Since you mentioned less expensive, Costco has the Resound Cala 8 in a BTE. I don't know if it's powerful enough for your hearing loss, but it would give you streaming with your iPhone for under...

    Thanks. Further poking and I've found some useful stuff. An Oticon white paper was useful on REM. They suggested + or- 5db at 500, 1000 and 2000 and + or-8db at 3000 and 4000. Also sounds like...
