Oticon Medical Ponto Reviews

Hearing aid reviews are fundamentally different from reviews for most other consumer electronic products. The reason is because individual factors, like degree of hearing loss, have a profound effect one's success and overall satisfaction with the product. When purchasing a hearing aid, you'll need to consider more than just your hearing outcome. Hearing aids are manufactured with varying levels of quality; some hearing aids are extremely durable, while others suffer frequent breakage. Battery life also varies between models, and manufacturer predictions of battery life are often optimistic. By collecting feedback from consumers, we can get a better idea of real world product durability and battery life... Continue reading

As, I Have been hearing challenged for over 50 years I do not know what natural sound really is. I do know what sounds right to me. These are very good Baha's I have not had to have any repairs, except one, I dropped the right Baha and the battery door broke off. I took it back to the Audi, and she sent it in for repair. I have these set at full volume and at the highest settings.. fyi - I have older cochlear bahas - they required lots of repairs.. I red some of the other reviews - yes the Bahas are bulky.. nevertheless , one needs to know that this is a fairly new type of hearing aid. My first hearing aid was a square box the size of a cigarette pack attached to a 3 wire cable/ cord , attached to a 3 nickel thick in size receiver, attached to a very hard plastic custom ear mold. I was only 5 years old .. Frankenstein ok perhaps in time the device will be more stylish? nevertheless if you have a hearing loss outstanding enough , that warrants a Baha, is hearing whats going on around you not important enough to to do what you got to do? The improvement for me in my hearing is well worth the inconvenience of something fragile and bulky attached to my skull. I have no problem with the sound quality. I was in my late 40's when this type of hearing device came out. an audiologist suggested I look into it, went for it , I recall my 20 ish year old son saying please don't where your baha out in public dad it looks so bad.. .I too have problems with pain at my left baha abutment site.. nevertheless, this has not stopped me from wearing my right side baha. I am going to see my ear doctor on Monday to see what he says.

I use a ponto power plus BAHA. The idea is a great one. My surgery went well and the abutment is fine. I am female. However, the hearing aid is so large it protrudes more than two and a half centimetres from my skull. This means it shows a lots through my long hair which is very embarrassing. The hearing aid looks like something which was designed and built fifty years ago. Even the very cheap blue tooth earphones and ear pieces have bought for my working ear look good and I don't mind them showing. Why does the Ponto Power Plus look and feel like it came out of the ark? The hearing aid is very large. It is also very easy to accidentally send flying off with even the lightest touch from a hair brush or hand. I am also unimpressed with some of the sound quality and very excessive wind noise.

I am iffy about my Ponto Plus at this point- it is easily knocked off and since I am still struggling with ear infections, not sure how I would rate it's sound/hearing improvement . I'm a year and a half out from surgery and still having tenderness and oozing from abutment site. Anyone else having this issue? I clean it every day.

Hi, are you still having these issues? I am having these issues and I have had mine for about two years I got it done in Feb 2016. I have the same issue as well as the oozing, crusty and tenderness and I clean it every day. I hope you have found a solution and would like to please share it with me.

I had my Ponto removed after about a year. When I undressed, it would fly off my head; when someone hugged me at church, it would squeal; the entrance point in my head was always sore; I couldn't sleep on that side of my head because of tenderness, and it didn't help with directional hearing. On top of that, when I didn't have the abutman on, the screw sticking out of my head made me feel like Frankenstein. In case you're interested, it's a piece of cake having one removed. The doctor gives you some deadening injections, then just unscrews it. My abutment is for sale....cheap!

I have had a bone anchored hearing aid for several years now. I have the Ponto Plus now, and agree it is disappointingly bulky. However, I am lucky enough to have thick hair and it doesn't show underneath it at all. In the early days of using a bone anchored aid, I also knocked it off when combing or brushing hair, or left it on when it was raining because I had forgotten it was there! I also experienced tenderness when lying on the abutment. Persistence pays, however, and you do get used to not combing hair while using it. You eventually remember to take it off before it rains, and always before a bath or shower or pulling clothes over your head, and the tenderness around the abutment eventually eases, so sleeping on it is no longer much of a problem. The improvement for me in my hearing is well worth the inconvenience of something fragile attached to my skull. I have no problem with the sound quality. I that is a problem for another user - perhaps it needs adjusting.

I have had my ponto hearing aid for about two years. I received mine on Feb 2016. Till this day I have only used it a handful of times. It is painful to wear my sight has healed but is still tender to the touch I can no longer lay or sleep on my right side. It still oozes to this day. I wake up and the sight is crusty I clean the sight every night and morning and is still dirty. I have long thick hair but it sticks out. I also have to part my hair to allow the hearing aid to actually hear if not all you hear is your hair rubbing against the mic. In all honesty, if I was to go back and get it done I would not get it done. I paid too much out of pocket and afraid I will have to pay too much to get it removed. It is simply too painful and I am afraid to dye my hair or do anything with my hair because I am scared that it will get infected and the pin is in my skull makes me frightful of an infection reaching my brain. I have been single sided deaf for my whole life and I regret wholeheartedly my surgery and receiving the ponto hearing aid.
