@sparklegram, Resound and Oticon are name brands and have excellent products. I have Resound Linx 3D's, which are not the manufacturers latest product now. Mine are almost 3 years old. Features are what sets the different products apart. I would suggest downloading the app for each product to compare how much control you will have over the hearing aids. It should be criminal but the manufacturers do not make it easy to find information about their products. They want you to go to a hearing health care provider just for information. I suggest looking at http://www.hearingtracker.com for information. You can see features that are available. Keep in mind that two manufacturers may have the same feature, but it may be called something else. The key to a good fit is the reputation of your hearing health care provider. Don't take just one person's word since everyone's hearing is unique. Some types of hearing loss are easy to fit. A person with moderate loss would most likely be easier to fit than a person with severe to profound loss.
