New to me and the different sound takes a bit of getting use to. My acoustic guitar sounds quite strange to Me, but it's OK. I have to concentrate a bit to remember to "put 'em in and take 'em out!" Some times I get a brief ear channel itch and can't quite handle it the way I use to... but, that's no biggie.
Sound quality of the 3D 9s is excellent-much improved over my previous hearing aids. The automatic adjustment for wind is a major improvement for me as I am outside a lot -walking, working in the yard and biking. The Bluetooth function is awesome as is the ability to adjust sounds and settings with my I Phone, especially is noisy settings like crowded rooms and restaurants.
Sound quality is not as expected. Sounds are clear but speech is not. I have not been able to understand speech clearly any different than without them which has been a big let down. There are a lot of robot like sounds when on the phone and they tend to cut out often when talking on the phone. As for being comfortable they are easy to put in and I barely notice them. The only issue I've had is the small piece attached to the microphone has been somewhat uncomfortable and we've had to work on getting the right size to be comfortable. The provider has been great in working on that. Unfortunately for the amount of money they cost I am quite disappointed that it is not correcting the problems I am having with recognizing speech. I can't hear what's on tv...still need to use closed caption...I can't hear the sounds of our neighbor's babies crying where the rest of my family can, I can't hear the tone of my Fastrak pass in my car where the rest of the passengers can, still can't understand the same words in songs I listen to often just as before...it's been a let down in that respect.
I am so happy with my new hearing aids. I decided to go with the ReSound 7 and find them to be easy to use, and in most situations, improve my hearing. I have been suffering from hearing loss and Tinnitus for over a decade, but did not realize just how much I was missing until now. I have always been able to hear in a quite one on one setting, but loose a lot of hearing ability when out of a quite environment. In restaurant situations the aids have made it so easy to hear conversations and truly enjoy my evening. The hearing clinic and the Audiologist that Zip Hearing sent me to is top notch and I would recommend to anyone. The only negative I have is that I still am trying to get used to having something inside my ears. I have only had them for a few weeks and am still learning what they can do for me.
This is my first Resound Hearing Aids. This is the premium version called Resound Linx 3D 9 model exclusively designed to work with IPHONE. I was wearing Bernafon hearing aids which I bought less than 3 years ago. These are Behind the Ear (BTE) and Receiver in Canal(RIC) and also called open fit hearing aids. They fit well on my ear and are fairly light compared to what I was wearing previously. The biggest advantage of these hearing aids is that you can control your hearing aid programming with IPHONE and you do not need any additional remote. In addition, you can also create your own personalized programs if you wish for any specific situations.
I am still in my 45-day trial. But my new ReSound Linx 3d 7 hearing aids have so improved the clarity of my hearing. I love being able to adjust my programs to improve the quality of my hearing according to my surroundings. I've had a bit of a problem adjusting the Dome size and wire length so initially they weren't very comfortable but my audiologist has been so patient and now I don't even notice they're there.
No issues with comfort. Was amazed at how much better I can hear. Would definitely recommend hearing aids to anyone who is on the fence. It has greatly improved my quality of life. I did not think I needed them, but I really did. No one likes to admit they are getting older and need help...but it happens..and the best thing you can do is be kind to yourself and embrace the change.
The sound is ok, I still have problems at restaurants. I have the resound 7 before these. . I just found the small res app and I turned on the hear everyone and have been using this for everything . we will see if things get better. I guess ill have to spend more time experimenting with the various programs.
So far I like my new hearing aids very much. Still getting used to them and have an appointmnt for adjustment next week..hey are so much more versitile than my old ones. I am happy.
My wife has only had the LiNX 3D 9 hearing aids for a couple hours. She only describes them as wonderful. She has worn aides since age 2 and said these are the best she has ever had. She is also loving the iPhone inter ration and now hear on the iPhone with no problems. She is looking forward to playing music without the need of headphones. I did a lot of research and keep going back to Resound, thanks to ziphearing for recommending the 3D version and sending us to a good audiologist. My wife was skeptical of the new tech, now she is a believer. Now my youngest son who also depends on aids is asking for these. Last but not least the price from ziphearing was great and the representatives have been very knowledgeable and patient with all the questions I asked. Again my wife is super pleased with her new aids. Thanks ziphearing for the service and price!
