Oticon Siya 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 ... Continue reading

They are very comfortable to wear. Battery life is a good 6 days or more.

I am using the Opticon Siya for a year and it was sent in twice for an irretating rain noise in the background.

At the acoustician's office it seemed fixed but start up again when I get home. His answer is he does not know what to do about it as it was sent to the factory in JHB.

I will not purchase another Opticon product as I paid R4000 more than the bernafon which did not give me any grief as yet.

Not impressed with these hearing aids.   They crackle constantly when my glass frames touch them.   The settings are only 2 p1 and p2 so you can not get a good balance of what you need to hear good. I am actually disappointed being the first time getting hearing aids.   For what my insurance was charged I would never of paid this amount.  I tried the cheap $40 per ear ones from Walmart about the same quality of hearing and programmability.   I am in my trial period and I am going to upgrade hopefully to something better because my insurance benefit is $3000 and I feel that there has to be something better for that kind of money and they are not even recharge

I bought my hearing aids on August 9, 2019. They were very comfortable to wear. I can perform a workout and not notice I am wearing them. They are small, so people do not see I am wearing them, which is nice. But from day one, I have had problems with them turning on/off, and the sound was not good. It sounded like I was underwater a lot, or my head was in a box. It would sound like my family was mumbling or screaming at times. My first audiologist could not figure out what the problem was. I sent the hearing aids back to her three times, and the problem was still there. I did not know this till recently, but she replaced my hearing aids in January 2020. The hearing aids worked great for a while.

A couple of weeks later, the problems came back. I always cleaned them and made sure the wax filters did not have wax in them. I changed to a different audiologist since my previous one would not talk to me anymore. The new audiologist said it was the wires and changed the speaker wires... which helped a little. I went for months with them turning on/off. I thought it was just me; so, I got my brother to wear them for a couple of hours. He understood what I was saying then.

During the time, I would call Oticon Support Line, and one of them believed it was the speaker wires. They were very nice to me and tried to help me with the problems, but they said they were not trained to perform those kinds of tasks over the phone, which I understood. My audiologist would have to do it.

On December 21, I went back to my second audiologist because the problem with them turning on/off was worse. She changed the speaker wires again and said if the hearing aids turned off/on again, I needed to send them to her, and she would look at them. On January 4, 2021, I had to send them back. Two days later, her assistant told me the audiologist did not know the problem and would need to send them to Oticon. Since my hearing aids were no longer under warranty, I would need to pay $300 for each hearing aid to be looked at by Oticon. She suggested calling Oticon Escalate Line since I did not have the money to see what they could do to help me. I called them and talked to a very kind man. I explained the situation while he typed notes up for his team to look over. A few hours later, I received a call from his boss; she was confused about why I called. After explaining the situation in more detail, she said when the hearing aids got to the manufacturing department, she would look at them and see what was wrong. 

A week later, I got another call from her, and she figured out the problem. The first part of the problem was a moisture problem. I needed to use a dehumidifier every day for my hearing aids because the tiniest bit of moisture in the hearing aids will cause them to turn on/off. The other part: my microphones and speakers were clogged and dirty. The new speaker wires were damaged and not in good condition. She said she cleaned them and fixed the wires, but from now, I need to clean the microphones and speakers every day. Before I go to bed, I need to put the hearing aids (without the batteries) in the dehumidifier. I knew I had to clean the wax filters and clean the wax off the doom, but I never knew any of this. She also told me when I put the hearing aids in the case, I needed to take the batteries out so the hearing aids can "breathe." I was never told this; I wish one of my audiologists told me this. It would have been nice if this information was in one of the books I was given about my hearing aids.

I got my hearing aids back, and they are great! I am not sure if I would ever buy anymore hearing aids from Oticon, but I finally feel like the money I used on these aids I was saving for college was worth it.

I bought this dehumidifier, and it works great: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B08C3838BC/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Bluetooth sound from TV is reliable and a big improvement in understanding. Music quality is very poor. Phone conversations on Iphone are good if it works. Nearly half of the time I can't hear the caller or my call made in the hearing aids. Often I can only hear the call in one side only. May be when the battery is below 40%. Batteries are very poor or poorly connected in the hearing aid. I have kept about 40 batteries that failed within 10 minutes of fitting. A "good" battery will last no more than 3 days using for 15 hours a day. The Iphone monitor shows battery capacity 100% only for a few minutes then quickly drops to 60%. Below 30% the bluetooth connection to the phone in unreliable. I have to use the Iphone loudspeaker a lot to maintain a conversation which is ok but not very private. I have reset many times but the basic unreliability of these hearing aids persists. I have had my new hearing aids 18 months. I believe Oticon sells poorly tested models.

All sounds are magnified including booms and thuds such as a door slamming or a hand slapping the desk. I find myself WISHING to be able to adjust specific frequencies (like the 1980s Equalizers we had to adjust our records) as I find ALL sounds are magnified rather than just human speech. There is also NO way to have presets such as for a crowded party, alone in the forest, listening to music, etc. Its all just a gross magnification of sound in my opinion. I find it helps best in a quiet room with 1 on 1 talk. I find it hard to hear a tv in the waiting room of the doctor if its low and there is lots of background movement noises (people shifting about, chairs squeaking, etc). I wear these in both ears. The phone "APP" only lets you adjust volume/ mute and NOT any specific details or fine tune the devices. Listening to music in a room such as a small house party made me feel like I was in an echo filled hallway outside the main room and I had trouble discerning human speaking from the music. Your mileage may vary as I have only ever used this ONE model since losing my hearing due to illness. I don't know if my issues with the SIA 1 model are a result of my deafness OR as a result of this model's limited, budget tech ( think budget Celeron chipset with less features vs. top of the line Pentium chip). For example according to its specs, it only has 48 channels vs Otikon's flagship model: Opn (which my insurance wouldn't cover) having 64+ channel processors as well as other bells and whistles like fine tuning frequencies - something this SIA 1 doens't let us consumers do) Also it runs off regular batteries only, NOT rechargeable - what a shame in 2019 where rechargeable is the standard these days.

Why did you turn them in?

I reluctantly did so because although the hearing aids are excellent the Bluetooth kept randomly dropping out. The process of re-pairing is fairly simple but having to do so repeatedly was just too annoying.

Love these hearing aids. I heard a lady whispering in her husbands ear twenty feet away in a doctors office. Almost scary. Also when my grandson screams it doesn’t annoy me like it used to. Almost like they cancel the noise.
