    Default new hearing aids and a new audiologist

    I need new hearing aids and a new audiologist. I have a profound hearing loss and after 5+ years with a streamer, I am very interested in direct connectivity. Since I don’t currently have an audiologist whom I trust, could anyone suggest the manufacturers/models I should be sure to consider. Any help is appreciated.

    There is no right answer, but this article seemed appropriate.

    Thank you MDB and Um bongo for responding to my questions. MDB, I had read the article you referenced which has good information. I posed the question in this forum to get some “real life” feedback. Um bongo’s recommendation confirms the information in the everyday hearing article. After 25+ years of wearing hearing aids I know there is not a “right” answer – sometimes it feels like there is not even a good answer. Since I have worn just about every brand except Resound, these recommendations are invaluable to me. Thanks again

    Just to add: Phonak is "supposed" to be coming out with a hearing aid with direct connectivity for Apple and Android by early next month. There are no details yet so it is unknown whether it will be available in their high power aids. The Phonak Nadia V is a well thought of aid, but as of yet does not have direct connectivity. Let us know how it goes.

    I’ll keep my eyes open for the new Phonak. It would be great to have more options.
