While attending a conference at Starkey in May, I asked the Starkey people at my dinner table about this very thing. The basically said that they were working on it. They also said that since Starkey hearing aids are software based any improvements should be backwards compatible. This sounds good but doesn't make sense because you would think a different attenae would need to be utilized. They also were a but upset when I said I would not order Halo2's for my patients since Resound LiNX2's have more features and capabilities. You may want to check out the Oticon Opn, whics uses bluetooth, near magnetic field tecnology. and 250GHz for its wireless communication. It could prove to be the best hearing aid out there yet! I just ordered my first pair to try!
