Poor Bluetooth integration. Having to re-pair with easytek almost daily. App is constantly confused as to whether to enter music streaming, audio streaming, or regular programs. The most annoying part of app is that it can't be used to control hearing aids without easytek except from within the easytek mode. So if the easytek mode crashes and refuses to pair, the app is useless. On the high end Cellion that will leave you either without a way to change programs, or a way to change volume, depending on your programming.
It insists that I am listening to Streaming Audio when I am trying to hear real people in the same room. The app still needs work. It gets frozen in the Streaming Audio option, and one needs to take out one's hearing aids, remove the batteries, and then reinsert the batteries and place the hearing aids back in in order to get the Streaming Audio to leave.
Will not stay connected. It always defaults to original settings so not only do you always have to reconnect you always have to redo your preferred settings. It does work well enough when connected but otherwise it's a pain in the butt.
All in all the sound quality for streaming music and telephone Bluetooth is subpar. My LG Bluetooth is substantially better. The app has extremely limited use and will not permit changes while streaming or talking on the phone. Will be looking for a much better hearing aid.
This app seems to be prone to crashing. Many times you have to reopen the app because it has crashed. Streaming also has its problems. I noticed unless the phone is within inches of the easytek it will not stream properly. If you do something as simple as putting your phone in your back pocket Bluetooth streaming will disconnect or be so choppy you won't want to use it. After spending more than $7,000 on hearing aids and purchasing all the bells and whistles this is a huge, huge disappointment. Update 1/20/17: This last update has now stopped the spatial configurator from working. When first opening the app, spatial configurator briefly shows up but then disappears. I'm beginning to think that buying a Siemens hearing aid was a big big error. Next time I'm going to insist, on a Starkey aid. Update 3/9/17:After going back and forth via email with tech support , they have given up. They are claiming they cannot get a test phone like mine to test and correct the problem. My phone is a Google Nexus 6P and nothing unusual. My advice would be, don't walk, run and buy another brand other than Siemens.
I have the Siemens pure bx7 the app worked faultlessly. It paired with my easytek. And allows me to connect with other Bluetooth devices. My phone, mps player. Tablet Tec.... great. The spacial configurator Llows me to make the hearing devices directional. An absolute gold plated boon. If you are in a noisy environment like a pub or noisy workspace , you can configure the easytek to reduce the surrounding noises, so you can hear the area directly in front bot you.... or to the side. Ideal for driving. Top marks. The battery life Is good. I manage over 12 hours on an average day and the battery indicator on the app allows me to monitor both the batteries in my hearing devices and in the easytek.
