Good but needs improvement

Overall the quality is great although at some times the sound gets choppy. Another problem is that the the AudioKey range is small which makes the sound cut out and make static sometimes. Please fix the Bluetooth range. Also please fix the boot up screen. I don’t want to have to login every time. It is great overall but they really need to fix the audio playback and the connectivity/range.

Insane that you need it. Insane that you have to religion every time

This app has a single button to turn on or off streaming from your device to your MED-EL audio link and then to your cochlear implant processor. It is insane that when you are connected by Bluetooth it does not automatically stream (like every other thing in the world). But what is most annoying is that you have to re-login to MED-EL EVERY TIME you use it!!! MANUALLY!!!
There is no facial recognition or finger print recognition. MED-EL is technologically in the dark ages, and it is VERY inconvenient.
Update: I used the app for a few minutes this morning then turned off streaming. Like every other app, I left it running in the background rather than completely closing it down. By 6pm my phone battery was drained! I never drain my battery!! 80% of the usage was this app...doing nothing!!!
Further Update: I went camping this week. No cell. So no Audio2Ear (you need to login via data to use it)......I’m speechless!!!!
One small mercy is that IOS 13.5 now allows the phone to remember passwords....if you have cell data service.

Log On

The app is pretty good most of the time. It gets a bit choppy depending on where the AudioLink is in relation to your phone. I prefer to carry my phone in my back pocket and that can degrade sound quality. My biggest peeve is that the app requires me to log in every time I use it. If I don’t have a good internet signal I am unable to log in or use the app. No bueno.
