    Default Unitron vs Phonak

    My audi told me that Unitron sounds tiny compared to Oticon.
    I have worn both and now that the Lattitude Moxi is fine tuned to my liking I cannot say that I would choose ether model based on sound quality alone.
    They both get an a+ in that regard from me.

    Is it a fair assumption that Phonak would have the same sound Characteristic as Unitron?

    Unitron and Phonak are owned by the same holding company (Sonova). They share technology and hardware components. I would not associate a certain sound quality with either product.

    Notice that these are the same hearing aid, the Shift adds plasitic to back of the device.

    Your audi telling you that the Unitron sounds tinny compared to the Oticon made me laugh. Go with what sounds good to you. Most hearing aids have different sound characteristics but this is more related to the number of channels, processing, etc. etc.

    It is safe to assume that some of the Phonaks would be similiar to the Unitron aids. The Latitude is an excellent hearing aid for the money. Which one do you have? The 4, 8, or 16. Also it would be a good idea to post your audiogram.

    I have the Lattitude 16. AS per going with what sound better. They both sound good to my deaf ears

    Why I ask about Phonak sounding similar to Unitron is that there are some good deals online and I may consider this risky option.

    Doesn't my audiogram post below my posts?
