Audéo M 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

I picked up my Audeo M90 312 from my audiologist 5 days ago, so this is an early set of comments on these new beauties! In mid-October I was in trial with the likable Audeo B90 312 HA's when the announcement came out that the M90 312 were coming out in 45 days. With the promise of a better AutoSense 3.0, B/T classic w/o neck device, works with iPhone and makes and takes phone calls and does text while on phone calls of the person that is calling, etc. Those were the features that grabbed my attention. Having worn them for 16 hours per day since I've received them, here are my thoughts so far. Overall, these hearing aids are smaller than my Widex Unique 440's that are being replaced and have more "curves" than the 440's. I have had no discomfort and they actually feel less noticeable than my 440's. I am using rubber tipped double vent domes that have a new shape. The audi fitted my left ear with the medium and my right ear with the small dome. After 3 days, I changed my left ear to small and the dull ache has gone away. The combination of domes and HA's have no observed feedback. The number of times that I have asked my wife to repeat what she has just said has reduced to zero. She if very pleased with the change in HA's. With regard to battery life of the 312's, while I was in trial of the B90's I was getting 5 days (16 hour days) with them. With the Marvel M90 312's I got 38 hours out of my new HA's using fresh 312 batteries. While using my new M90's I had my iPhone 7 Plus paired with the M90's every one of the 38 hours. The B/T classic had to be draining the batteries, but I wanted to see how that went. After putting my next new set of 312 batteries into the M90's I am being "stingy" with going to B/T mode and will see how long the batteries last while mostly in non-B/T mode. I did purchase a TV Connector D. This device will help your spouse more than it helps you! PERIOD!! The TV Connector D is linked to my optical output of my TV and is powered by ac plug. It provides B/T connectivity after being paired to the M90's. It does have an on/off switch on the top of the connector. The Phonak Remote on my iPhone offers slider control of the volume levels as does the top of the TV Connector D itself. The phone app offers much better control of the volume level for comfort and adjustment when the scenes have players that are whispering and then again when the "bombs" are going off and they are screaming. This is a very helpful device and I am now able to turn off closed caption and just enjoy the video product. Did I say my wife loves this?!?!? So do I! Now for my comments about the specific features: AutoSense 3.0; I really can't tell if this is an improvement over the AutoSense in the Phonak B90's. They sound about the same, but I haven't been in very challenging noisy environments too much yet. So this feature I can't comment on with real authority yet. I will say that their is something a bit odd about my right HA on both the M90 and the B90. While driving down the road in my Tacoma with the windows up and normal speeds, the right HA has an extra louder than actual environment level of "White Noise" generated. To combat this annoyance, I just bump the volume back 3 clicks and the bothersome noise is gone (actually not gone, but not heard). This does not happen with my left HA side. This has happened with both my Audeo B90's that I was in trial with and my new M90's. Any thoughts about this problem fellow users?? B/T Classic: I was able to pair the left HA M90 with the iPhone 7Plus (latest iOS) and my iHeart and iTunes was immediately available for my listening enjoyment. The sound quality was very good - like corded Apple earbuds. My next step was to connect to the TV Connector D for better TV aural experience. No problem there and the the experience was refreshing and enjoyable. There are a couple of things to remember when dealing with B/T. The Marvels can only connect with one B/T device at a time. Normal, pretty much. So you must remember to turn off the TV Connector D, if you have one, or it will keep you from connecting to your music on the iPhone, etc. I forgot about this initially and spent a half hour repeatedly pairing and "forgetting" devices until I remembered that I had the TV Connector on. Once I turned that off, everything was controllable. Phone calls via M90 and iPhone 7Plus (and iPhone X): Two days ago I upgraded from my iPhone 7Plus platform to the iPhone X device. Sweet new phone - I like it better! The reason that I mention them both is that I have had absolutely NO ISSUES WITH MAKING OR TAKING PHONE CALLS with either device. [Sorry for the shouting HA buddies!] Most of my calls have been while I was at home and the phone quality on my side was spectacular and into both ears. The person on the other end said it was excellent voice quality to them. On another occasion I was in the gym on the treadmill at an establishment that had other equipment running and fairly loud music in the background. My side was still good but the other side said that although it was understandable it my voice was muted some and low compared to the highs of the notes in the music that was playing. Next was trying out the phone with M90's while driving in the Tacoma. Again, both sides agreed that the voice quality was very good (I was using the mic pick ups on the M90's - FYI). For this feature to work you must have your B/T up and running on your iPhone - FYI. Phonak promises that the when taking a call that you can see the incoming callers written text on your iPhone: I haven't been able to demo this feature on my own. Not sure how to turn on this capability while on a phone call. Maybe someone out there can help me with this? One last thought: I still have to give these new HA's a hard test in really tough environments, but if they are similar or better than the B90's then they will help me while in a crowd - the bane of all HA users! Overall, glad that I got them and would consider the Phonak Marvel M90 312 a good value for the money. Remember to get the TV Connector D to vastly improve your TV viewing experience.... and your spouse's too!

Only my second day. My Audiologist told me she errs on the side of over amplification and I have had some issues with sharp noises like dishes clattering on granite counter or garbage compactor closing loudly. Also plastic bags (my wife eating tortilla chips out of the bag) are loud and noisy. I have turned down the initial setting from 0 to minus 3 or 4 using the remote as my Audiologist indicated I should do until my brain gets used to these higher pitched sounds. Will gradually increase the setting until I get back to neutral.

I am experiencing a problem with the classic Bluetooth on an iPhone XS. Phonak is aware of the issue. It revolves around the mics on the ha’s not being on during a phone call.

Same issue - Audeo M does NOT work with iphone XS.  There's no amount of configuring, re-pairing etc. that will work.  Phonak customer support completely ineffective.  Seamless Bluetooth headset calling is why I bought these and even though I think the Resound offers better noise control, I would stick with the Audeos but ONLY if the bluetooth calling works.  That's not the case unfortunately so I will be returning them.

At my ear store I was fitted for the Audeo Marvel, M90.  The technician said that he could enable all the features on the "chip".  Or, after careful questioning, admitted he could delete features for the other three lower price points (without changing the product in my ear).

What?  Everyone gets the same product....the features in each price point are just enabled - or not with the click of the mouse!!!!!

The higher price point customers, then, are essentially subsidising the lower price point customers.   Nobody EVER MENTIONS THIS. Not the American way.

I was dumbfounded by this at first too, but believe it or not, the software features cost more in R&D than the hardware... AND, the software features are what differentiate the hearing aid models and brands from each other - more so than the hardware. So really, when you're purchasing a hearing aid, a big part of what you're buying is the sound processing software package. I'm not saying it's the best pricing model, but it has been the prevailing model for as long as I've been familiar with this industry.

US based car manufacturer, Tesla, do the same with their Electric Cars, but it it made pretty clear to customers that this is how they do it. If you choose a feature or option with a new car purchase, it generally costs less that purchasing as an upgrade later. For example, Auto-Pilot hardware is built into all vehicles but it costs about $5,000 to enable this option which Tesla can do remotely through an over the air update once payment is made. I think that this business approach makes sense as it standardises the hardware to streamline production etc and user pays for the features if they want them. It would probably cost manufacturers more to have several different hardware options. You can also choose to upgrade later if you are unsure or cannot afford at time purchase.

I just bought the Phonak M90R's as my first hearing aid after trialling a few premium models from leading brands and after a week of use am happy with them. They work fine with iPhone X and new Phonak TV Connector. My only issue so far is that if I pair them using bluetooth with my Mac Book Pro, then I cannot get them to pair with my phone again unless I forget them in bluetooth set up and pair again. I then also need to do the same in the App to get it to communicate with the HA's.

I ran into this problem too, but not with my MacBook Air. I literally set up my M90's with everything that I owned that was bluetooth. What I found was that I couldn't get the mac to release the HA's to let it work with the iPhone. Or, when in my Tacoma, I couldn't get the B/T Alpine radio to give up the B/T link and let my M90's take the call.

So what I did was forget ALL B/T devices on my phone and simply put a very small list of devices that I really wanted to be able to connect too via B/T. This has simplified my life and has now eradicated problems with "locking up" the B/T connectivity.

Not perfect, but my way of dealing with the problem. FYI.
