  • Dear Dr Clifford,
    Great in depth reviews and you are very knowledgeable. Keep it up! Question: How long is the warranty on the device and what if the rechargeable battery stops working? Any likelihood of having remote assist or tinnitus suppression? Is R9 significantly better than the R7? Mahendra Mehta, MD.

  • I'm in the trial mode. Have trialed two models of Phonak Marvel (top and one level below - both very good - can hear voices quite well but both had issues with Iphone - I could hear but the person on the other end could not hear me. I've been told today that this has now been corrected and needs to be fixed by the audiologist. However today I received my trial Unitron Discover. They are good also. Have only had them one day and haven't had any problems yet. I would really like to see a comparison of these TWO as they are definitely not cheap so it would be nice to see what each has compared to the other. I have searched the internet but these two models are not yet compared to each other. (I also had trialed another brand which were horrible, all voices were distorted and I couldn't hear them properly anyhow and everyone I spoke to had to repeat themselves and were as frustrated as I was). I have to make a decision within the next two weeks probably so would really appreciate knowing if there is a comparison between the Phonak Marvel and the Unitron Discover available anywhere (behind the ear but using batteries - not rechargeable).

  • Had an idea, your should do a video on what you can or can not wear whilst wearing BTE devices... eg hats and beanies :)

  • Could you do a video on Frequency Therapeutics and the new drug they are coming out with (hopefully it pasts tests) it’s supposed to stimulate dead hair cells

  • I wear resound linx 3D hearing aid and want to know if I should use any audio wipes to clean them or just use the brush that came with them ?

  • I'm tired of videos on BTE, why is this form factor being pushed by hearing aid companies and providers? Isn't there other options? I guess we'll have to wait for them to tell us IIC or other form factors are the future again... Not everyone wants to wear hearing aids over and behind the ear. It is like having eyeglasses vs contacts.

  • Why does the case look like the Phonak marvel case with a different color insert and outside paint?

  • I like that you can upgrade the teir later down the line. Am I right in thinking that even though the marvel r is the same chip upgrading later isn't an option.
