This Easy/Medium/Difficult classification is for how difficult it is to obtain fitting software?
Easy: Oticon-Genie2/Genie, Phonak-Target/iPFG, ReSound-Aventa, Bernafon-Oasis
Medium: Siemens/Signia-Connexx w/SiFit database, Rexton-Connexx w/RexFit database
Difficult: Unitron-Truefit/Unifit, Widex-Compass
Impossible? Costco locked-version of ReSound-Aventa for Kirkland Signature (KS5 and KS6)
Which version of the fitting software? Generally you will want the latest version of the fitting software. The latest version is capable of fitting most of the current hearing aids models including the latest models. However, if you have legacy/older hearing aids then the latest software version may not support your older model.
Some vendors switch software platforms, for example;
Phonak iPFG software supports older models while the newer Phonak Target software supports newer models. Oticon Genie software supports older models while the newer Oticon >>Genie2<< supports newer models (beginning with Opn). Downloading Genie2 gets you both versions but if you want to run the old version instead of running the default new >>Genie2<< version then you need to choose a separate .exe file in order to run the old version. Hint, click this link >>Genie2<<.
Also be skeptical about buying Free-Fitting-Software from EBay. You will likely get an older version.
