    I just read about this today! I, for one, am going to ask my aud-guy about the Phonak aids. WHY should I continue with Oticon Opn miniRITE when it has ZERO Android compatibility?

    And the latest...

    OK, so I'm the first to reply here. I live a plane-ride from Longmont, CO, so obviously am not able to partake in any last-minute testing of this device. Being born with nerve-related hearing loss, I...

    Yes: closed domes do sound occluded. The open domes are a way of venting the aids - not unlike the vent holes in ITE-style aids (those with a hard plastic shell).

    I like your description of the...

    I also have ear canals DRY as a DESERT! I've worn aids (full shell, ITE and now RIE) for over 30 years, and ear wax has absolutely never been a problem for me. So I also think this condition is...

    I just saw my aud-guy today to have the "restaurant" setting tweaked on my Oticon Opn miniRITE aids. Previously, I'd found little if any difference between Program 1 and Program 2. That's cuz the...

    I was also guessing this was a venting issue! You can even drill out a bigger hole if one is already there. The upside is: boomy, closed-in sound is diminished. Downside is: your hearing aid may not...
