Anyone using new Phonak hearing aides and TV connector?

I asked my audiologist if Phonak were better than Resound & she said no difference plus no difference in price. Both are $1500 a pair so I ordered the resound which I’d been trying out a loaner pair.
And $50 extra a pocket size device for some controls on my end. I’m getting them in May.
Idk if you have tinnitus but it’s in the same ear as the deafness. I can’t hear anything much on that side. glad yours are helping you

The Phonak model I upgraded to is "AVDEO LUMITY 90K" which cost about $500 and comes with 3 year warrenty which covers quarterly checkups.

$1500 for a pair of Oticon, Resound or Phonak hearing aids is a very good price. It's important to know, though, that proper fitting is the key to doing well with any brand of hearing aids.

It's very important to have sufficient trial time to test out a new pair of hearing aids. Some providers allow 30 days, others a bit longer. Regardless, it's so important to wear the hearing aids and try them out all the places you want to be able to hear well.

The skill of the fitter is extremely important in setting hearing aids to your individual hearing loss. Did your provider use real ear measurement when testing you?
