    Am considering it. I did find the Widex domes to be waaaay more comfortable. Though Oticon has definately stepped up the comfort game with these new domes.

    So far the fit is ok. Battery life is just as good as the Widex. Sound is ok. I need different domes as noisy places like the gym is still too loud to hear streamed media.

    Also with a MBP with Sierra. Mine *does* support BLE (Check your System Profiler). Like you, I do not see them listed in the BT preferences list.

    I have five very noisy children. :-)
    My other job is much quieter engineering Internets. I do plan on visiting another ENT soon-ish.

    I think this is pretty much the definition of the CROS transmitter. Maybe what you meant was; it would be good if manufacturers added a feature to send the signal over in a normal aid.

    OPN BlueTooth without streamer?

    I think I read somewhere that the top line OPN does not need the Streamer to connect via BlueTooth?

    I hope someone can clarify this!
