Ratings and Reviews
Stupid and noisy compared to what it could be.
Could be GREAT. For example imagine hitting the MAIN CENTER button on the neck loop dongle and talking to Siri on an iPhone or Google speech on the Androids. But it doesn't. Imagine the hearing aids being QUIET while you are switching iPhone apps, getting a text, or turning the iPhone screen off. BUT THAT QUIET CAN'T BE HAD. Instead you'll suffer annoying beeps and tone sequences of no particular logic or usefulness. Imagine if like Alexa or Siri or google speech you very smart hearing aids could whisper in your ear which program you are on, or which sound level you are at- in your own language! BUT NO THATS ALSO NOT TO BE HAD.
Imagine if you could select among the full suite of available programs. That would be good too. Instead only you hearing aid professional can preload the few programs into the hearing aid. No help from our amazing smartphones allowed. Is it stupidity or lack of energy and courage that makes these hearing aid apps, for sivanto's ones are NOT UNTYPICAL. Why is the industry foisting off these very dumb and barely functional apps on hearing aid users? Get into new age already! So primitive!
The hearing aid are great. The smartphone connectivity is barebones. Very cheap Bluetooth headphones and speakers do as well. Or better.
I would give this product higher rating but the audio notifications are too much for me to handle. The sound is quite loud and there doesn't be an obvious way to turn off the audible notifications or turn down the audible notifications. For example I was driving with my hearing aids in, got a text message and the audible notification before the text message just about blew out my eardrums. This is especially dangerous when driving. They also pop up when using turn by turn navigation as well as news story's popping up on the phone. If they come out with a newer version where this functionality can be adjusted I would give this product more stars, as it is im considering retiring the product to Costco because of this.
I bought this with my new hearing aids in January. So far I have returned the Bluetooth four times. And replaced each time. It keeps cutting out when you turn your head to the right or left. It also frequently drops the call or signal. And doesn't hold a charge. I'm really frustrated. My ancient Bluetooth Motorola 500. That's probably 15 years old. Is more reliable today then this Bluetooth. Although it does have a couple of good features. You can set it for different settings. Like being in a live performance, adjust the volume while you're on a call. One star is barely what I can get. My hearing aid dispenser at Costco. Has contacted tech support several times and they seem to be unaware of some of these issues. Yet when I look at reviews I see all the issues I'm been having. But after these reviews. I don't see any comments from tech-support to be issues. Or evidence they are trying to improve.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
