After an unfortunate collision involving my previous analog device and a concrete surface, I've decided to bit the bullet and invest in a set of digital hearing aids.
Sat through a 2 hour session with a specialist/salesman today who blinded me with ear-science (apologies to all spectacle wearers). I was particularly impressed with the "concha 800" which would appear to meet my particular needs (I wouldn't wear my previous aid in places with lots of background noise - basically everywhere except work and at home, when my wife isn't around).
Before I commit myself to spending EUR4,500 (approx.$7,000), if anyone has experience of this model or just advice about digital aids in general, I'd be grateful to hear about it.
Thanks in advance!
For 7,000 they can just QUIT MUMBLING.
My only experience is with the GN Metrix. Background noise has been a problem in spite of being a programmable device. I wish I could advise you, but no experience with Concha. Do they let you take it out for a 30 day trial? If they don't, I suggest you find another dealer.
