I understand that there are folks who prefer analog for music.
Yes I own 2 digital - full in the ear shells - and both have an option set for music. The Digital Units cost more than the Analog of course
but for music - and particularly if you are a student practicing in a quiet home environment I still prefer the Analog Unit.
The dedicated music programming still - in my own way of thinking after home testing with different guitar tuning units - were slightly off the true MHz of the notes played. That is the Only advantage for me anyhow, that the Analog offers - It gives me a true Note Frequency Sound.
Another observation for what is worth:.. I tried the "Behind the Ear" Units for both types and found that for me - have small ears with not too much separation from my head, I wear glasses when reading music - they did not work out too well since wearing glasses "crowded" the space and
the Aids kept falling off my ears.I don't mind wearing Full Shell Aids in public. (some people do).
I bowl at a Senior Bowling League and about half of the bowlers wear the Behind The Ear Units. I am the only one with Full Shell In The Ear Unit.
In a couple of occasions I was told by staff workers that they did not notice my Units since the Shell matched by skin color and most people don't look at ears in conversations.Apparently those members wearing BTE units are recognized due to the way they are placed and connected to the ear.
At my senior age comfort and utility are more important than appearance
