December 20, 2016 -- Erin Wright
We have seen a host of new product launches in 2016 and I thought that to be in keeping with lists of new years that we would write our own best of 2016 list.
Best Sound Quality
Best Budget Hearing Aid
Best for Simplicity
Winner: Siemens Binax Pure hearing aids. These rechargeable hearing aids with custom ear molds are the easiest for people who have any challenges with vision or dexterity.
Best Invisible Aid
Winner: Starkey Soundlense. Starkey has been able to fit all of the hearing aid components into a package so small it surprises me each time I see them. They are so cute! Tiny. And they fit incredibly deep into the canal.
Winner: Resound. The variety of microphones and ways to connect to computers, kitchen radios, cell phones and other people is unmatched. There is nothing you can’t connect to when you use Resound aids.
Best iPhone App
Winner: Widex. Their new Beyond hearing aid has just been released this month and the options on the app for the hearing aid user are awesome. Ways to mix sound, different settings for speech and music and a host of other things to play with.
Happy New Year!
