Trying to move from analog hearing aid to a digital one
I stumbled across your page while researching hearing aides. Then I noticed that Steve Claridge might be able to help me in my current search for new Hearing Aides. I currently use Phonak PP-C-L 4+. I also have a pair of Phonak Naida Q Up Digital. The digitals remain in my drawer unused because they do not allow me to enjoy Music, Movies, Concerts. Each visit to my Audi left me feeling worst than the last. I will never understand how quick and easy it was for new analogs to work from the first visit while Digital never took even after 15 visits. As my analogs continue to fall apart I am hoping that maybe some at Hearing Aid Know would be able to help me find a Digital aide that is capable of giving me what my analogs deliver. I prefer Analog but seeing nobody makes them anymore I had to ask. The last time I saw my Audi she told me I was due for new HA but I told her that I wanted Analog and not Digital and have never heard back. I am in the US. So any info that would be useful on my next visit would be greatly appreciated.
