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 have been wearing hearing aids for 7 years. My first pair were Starkey. A totally in ear set. I liked my Starkey aids, but managed to drop one on my hardwood floor and it cracked in half. I got them repaired, but down the road, the injury opened up again along the original fault lines. Rather than continue repairing, I decided to try these Phonak hearing aids. Mine are the Vitro B90. I loved the idea of Titanium. I haven't broken them yet! I have moderate hearing loss, and am still working in an office setting. I find my hearing aids definitely help with everyday speech settings like my job. Nothing seems to help in a crowded restaurant. In fact hearing aids always make that setting worse for me. I used to take my Starkeys out, and I take these Phonak out in that situation too. I never get an type of feedback, unless you like press something right up against your ear. So, I don't do that. :) These hearing aids struck me as very expensive ($6k overall, so $3k per ear). That being said my hearing is important, especially since I am fairly young and still working. I am curious if there are equally good products for less money though?
Best fitting hearing aids i have had to date, previous HAs had issues with retention during function. Speech listening is good and have opened a world of new sounds i did not previously used to hear ie birds tweeting and paper rustling. Only downside is you cant fine tune these yourself.
For my level of hearing loss these new aids have been great! They are not huge, but they pack enough equipment in them to improve the hearing capability in my left ear. I was at the top range in my old aids and it was becoming a problem. I really like the Phonak product line!!!
I was just fitted with virto titanium after using Starkey sound lens for years. The virtos wouldn't stop feeding back in the audiologists office, they had to plug the vent tube to make them stop. This makes my ears completely occluded. I find myself just taking the hearing aids out to be able to understand people and not walk around feeling like I have a plug in my ear. The sound lens is a much smaller and discreet aid, deeper fit. The audio signal processing on the starkey seems light years better than the phonak even though its 7 year old technology. Im hoping return visits to my audiologist will improve these problems but as it stands I feel I will be returning them and going with starkeys again.
I am very happy with the B90s. The fit is perfect, the handling easy. For me it was important that the aids are not visible. I tested the phonak Lyrics, which are pushed in all the way. Perfect for non-visibility, but I did not like the fact that I cannot remove them and have to careful while taking showers. With the B-90s The drawback is that I have to change the batteries every 2-3 days. But overall I am super happy and think that I should have done this a while ago
Fit is exceptional. The amplified sound is hot. Having a real problem with entrainment. Like a reverb making quite difficult to distinguish speech. Phonak has not been helpful in resolving. I am waiting Starkey soundlens IIC test drive as possible replacement.
I have used hearing aids for approximately 10 years. Initially, I used a Siemens BTE which I wound up using more and more sporadically. Approximately 5 years ago, I started to use Lyrics, which really solved many problems. I did not really have to think about the hearing aids, as they were always in and working. Unfortunately, I have had increasing problems with the Lyrics. Initially, they were good for 6 to 8 weeks before needing to be changed. for the past year they have only lasted a week or two. I have decided to try something else, and the Virto B90 titanium was suggested. I have only had them for a short time, but so far so good. Sound quality has been excellent, and there is no abnormal wind noise, rustling or whistling. I believe I hear better than with the Lyrics and when they are inserted, they virtually disappear, both visually, and feeling, that is I do not notice that there is anything foreign in my ears. There is no occlusion and only whistling is if I try and stick my finger in my ear. I am becoming more and more adept at installing and removing. Battery life has averaged a week so far. And now, I am free to jump in the pool with my grandchildren! Any changes, I will repost.
Only had for a short time, but so far I'm really impressed with the size, comfort, and sound quality from these. My previous pair of in the ears were more noticeable and didn't handle my hearing loss as well. I have severe hearing loss in the higher tones, and my doctor was able to bring down some of the higher tones using the phonak sound recoverer. Sometimes on a cold morning my aids are cold going in. Otherwise, I haven't noticed any downside to the titanium.
