In my opinion, a demonstration given of any given MAKE and MODEL (say a Widex Unique 440) in the form of a RIC ….
is NOT VALID as a demonstration of a CIC of that same make and model.
Ok, they are both Widex (in this example), and they are both the model UNIQUE 440…
BUT, they will just not sound the same. Any comparison is at the very least, weak.
CICs will make the wearer’s voice sound louder and will treat nearby noise quite differently.
Mind you, we will let you try both forms without any payment up front.
