This review is for the Siemens Lotus 12P BTE hearing aid. This hearing aid is one that is mostly found on EBAY although it is also found at several online hearing aid web sites. I would like to start off by saying that I am very happy with my purchase! I was very surprised at the sound quality and overall feel of the Lotus 12P.
I would certainly recommend this aid to anyone suffering with moderate to profound hearing loss. I would also recommend this aid to anyone on a tight budget. This aid certainly has a kick, but like any other, it also has a few drawbacks.
I started wearing a Phonak Naida III SP hearing aid 2 years ago. I was attracted to the water resistance of the Naida as well as it’s multiple channels and options for accessories. I never did buy any accessories for the Naida, so that was a wasted option.
I purchased the Lotus 12P as a backup and was shocked at the quality, so now I have decided to buy another as a backup. The lotus does not offer the same features as the more expensive Phonak, But sometimes “less is more”! By eliminating all but two channels, and designing the microphone to resist water, then adding an “Ear Gear” hearing aid protector, I have the same water resistance as the Naida (at a fraction of the cost)! I hope you find this review useful. If you decide to purchase a Lotus 12P, I’m sure you’ll be happy with your decision.
