    Default Starkey Halo versus ReSound LINX2

    I am an Apple Junky. I have iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch, etc. I would like better integration of these devices with hearing aids. Starkey and ReSound are the only ones with Made For iOS hearing aids. Anyone tried both! How did you like them? Which do you think was better, and why?

    Bonus, have you used older Bluetooth streamers. Such as ReSound/Beltone. Did the newer aids work much better?
    My Audiogram 9/23/2010
    Hz...250..0500.1000.1500.2000.3000.4000.600 0.8000
    L......50554545.45..30252525
    R......55504545.35..30303035

    Bone Conduction are all 20 Db or less

    Diagnosis from Au = Moderately Severe rising to Mild CHL

    Speech disc:
    L: 100% at 85 dB SRT 45
    R: 100% at 85 dB SRT 40

    I am on my First Set of Hearing Aids, which are Beltone True 17's Purchased in February of 2011.

    Reidan....did you ever come to a resolution on your question above, I see it is now >1 year ago?
    I have both sets of aids now, Linx2 and Halo 110s. Both purchased with insurance so cost was quite low.
    Neither aid is perfect. Both are mechanically unreliable, having many issues with receivers going bad, poor moisture resistance, humidity as well. Thus my reasoning for having both sets, always wanting a backup due to this unreliability.
    Battery life is poor for both. The Linx is better if you do not use BT, when that is used, battery life falls from 6 days to 2 days.
    I wish to go with an Apple Watch but am not sure how BT connectivity will be affected if at all. Any comments along those lines please?

    ^just to comment on that battery life. my 312 last 4-5 days with streaming at least 6 hours a day on my oticon opn1. I can hardly believe that you would have such a drop down to 2 days...... you're not using size 10 by any chance?
    Left/Right//kHz // Oticon OPN1 105dB C-Shell

    45/55//0.25
    60/70// 0.5
    70/70//1
    60/70//2
    60/60//3
    50/45//4
    55/50//6
    45/55//8

    I have no experience with the Halo but I got a pair of the Linx2-9 back in November, I use 312 batteries and I average between 4 to 4.5 days of life on them. I stream pod casts and take pretty much all of my phone calls thru the BT I was getting shorter life span at the beginning and called resound and they advised me to take the batteries out of pack and take the tab off them and let them sit for 5 minutes prior to installing them, this increased the usage by a day or so.
