    Consider yourself fortunate.

    Depending on what hearing aid you have, the Starkey Surflink Mobile may be an option, if you can get one.

    beltone (= resound) has myPal, their name for the minimic which transmits direct to the Alera series. i trialed, it's fine, but battery life was more like 3 hours than the claimed 8 hours. I reckon the Costco mic for the Future is the same.
    a good path, but i favor a system using a tcoil for now. companionmic companion microphone
    still seeking the perfect spousemic system

    Thank you, Prodigy, for the lead.

    I'm boning up on the Surflink, and it does indeed look promising.

    There seem to be inventory problems right now, but I'm not buying until my insurance pays, in about 6 months. elijah

    elijah,
    You will be lucky if you can buy a Surflink Mobile in 6 months! With how many people are waiting to get theirs you could have a long wait. A friend of mine has been waiting since October of last year for his to come in and has been told it probably won't be in until the first of the year. He is also on his third remote control with the first two failing within 4-5 months of use.
