    Yes, if you've got a loss that requires HP receivers, I can see the desire for backups. Regarding warranty. Don't know how Resound works, but sometimes if you can prove that you purchased them...

    The programming equipment to program the Primaxs should be the same as the Linx 2s, with possible exception of the connector to the hearing aid. I don't know what Linx 2s use, but the Primaxs use...

    I was hoping an audiologist would chime in. I don't know if it was a "miswrite," but I'm pretty sure ana doesn't have a reverse-slope loss. Reverse slope is when low frequency hearing is impaired...

    The thread that Volusiano shared is a good one and basically agrees with what I've researched online. In short, if one is looking for an easy to accept, more "natural" sounding fitting, go with the...

    Neat that it happened that way for you. That was not how it happened for me. I was tested and fit, but aids needed to be ordered and I came back in a couple of weeks to pick them up. I think...

    Yes, great resource. Depending on how into this one wants to get, it's kind of neat to go to the DIY forums and download the Connexx 8 software and Rexfit database. Run a simulation on a Rexton 80...

    Loosely, it's Oticon, Phonak, Signia, Resound, Starkey and Widex. That's not technically correct as many fall under a bigger company. (Phonak under Sonova, for instance), and there are other brands...

    From the presentation it will only work with hearing aids that use LE Bluetooth. Currently only Resound has one that is compatible, but the rest of the Big 6 have models under development. It seems...

    Interesting idea! I have a mini pro, cs44 cables and 312 pills that work for my KS7s and should work for Rexton and Signia HAs with 312 batteries and perhaps others. I wouldn't want to ship them...

    I guess I was just objecting to the 70 dB cutoff. It clearly depends at what frequency/ies. If somebody had normal hearing up to 6000, but had a profound loss at 8000, I don't think anybody would...
