    I clean the actual aids with a microfiber cloth and occasionally vacuum them with a jodi vac. I don't use alcowipes on the hard case or receiver.

    I take the domes off most nights and clean them with alcohol wipes then use my dryer with UV sterilizer. I change the domes roughly every 3-4 months

    Definitely the price of HAs. If they were a lot cheaper people would not mind the fact that aids are not perfect. It would also be easier to upgrade to new technology more often and even have a spare...

    The problem is attracting the customers and the solution is to try to get those people searching the web to give up their details.

    First priority is to protect your hearing so I would suggest muting or removing aids while riding a motorbike. They probably won't provide any benefit in that type of noise anyway.

    I wear RIC HAs...

    The clinic may have made it seem easy but your mums ears need different types of fit(closed/open) and different receivers. You also don't know what level they were set at with respect to targets(80%...

    I find that I am not good at lip reading without audio input but it is surprising how much it adds if I hear part of things and have that lip reading input to compliment my hearing. I did not realize...

    You should be able to source one from a specialty battery shop. The swollen battery is a very bad sign and means it is a potential fire risk so correct disposal is urgent. As long as the...

    Kerry,

    I don't have first hand reports but learned about it via the AMPHL (American Medical Practitioners with Hearing Loss). They have posted a comparison table for stethescopes on their website...

    For anyone still looking for a stethescope solution there is a new player in the field - the Eko Core. It comes as either a stand alone scope which can be used in acoustic or digital mode or a kit to...

    You can download the apps and try them each out in demo mode to see if you think they would be of use to you. They can be less fiddlie than the HA buttons.

    Kerry,

    I think trying out your current stethoscope is a great way to go. Wheezes are probably the most high pitched of the biological sounds along with stridor so if you can hear all the basics...

    Hi Kerry,

    All the biological sounds are 600 Hz or less (heart sound around 200 Hz and less). I use my natural hearing with open fit RIC aids - open domes. Sometimes the pressure from the...

    Actually only gov. pensioners and children get the subsidies. Simply retiring does not entitle you to any subsidy. And the best health fund rebates are around $1,000 every 3 years. For a limited time...

    Mine were $11,000 - 2 years ago. Our dollar was a lot better then also.

    Yes, the Phonak domes are a lot softer. I also found the Phonak receivers slightly smaller which helped. There are also a few other people who use a different brand dome to their receiver. As long as...

    Don't give up until you have tried for longer. Until you adjust to full gain correction in any hearing aid you will not really be able to tell what the quality of the sound will be like. The comfort...

    I'm guessing BT5 is the next high end phone inclusion then. Mobile phones are already quite mature products so they need new features like this to differentiate them. Until the feature is in a...

    The audiologist could have a web clinic once or twice a week and book appointments just like any other clinic. It would be good for all those people who live a long way from the clinic or who find it...

    Do any of the audiologists in your area do free trials with no money up front? Do they stock more than one brand? If they work for a company do they get paid commissions for the sale of HAs? (Do more...
