    Right now I am in the process of getting a new mold (on order) as the original has feed back issues with the 105. Just wondering if additional power may cause more feedback issues.
    Well I already have feedback issues with my current aids, so I'm pretty used to it. Just putting my hand near my aids, I get feedback. I am getting new moulds made privately as I'm having real issues regarding comfort with my current ones (Made by the NHS) so it might improve with regards to feedback, but it is more comfort that I care about than anything else.

    I will keep you all updated!

    I don't think so. My OPNs don't have any feedback at all when I put my hands on my ears, wear headphones or headsets, or even lie on the side of the pillow. And I'm just using a single vent home bass dome. If you're using a custom mold then feedback control should work even better.

    Make sure your audi runs the feedback program to turn on feedback control, though. Not all audis do this unless it's an issue.

    I don't get any feedback either with the OPNs.

    Well, I had always assumed it was because of the power of the hearing aid? I am not sure if there is a feedback control on my current aids? I do remember asking about the feedback, they did try to fiddle with it, but it had its limitations and there wasn't much they could do. But this was years ago and since then I just assumed I'd have to live with it.

    Even when I hug people, I get feedback and people are like ooh, that's loud. It's so frustrating and annoying as I do like hugging people but I'm so conscious that I will make a noise if they hug me too close.

    That's another reason when I am trying the private sector is due to the technology available i.e. the OPN and it's fantastic that you guys don't get any feedback. That's amazing.

    And so far, going private has been amazing. Yes, I'm paying for it, but so far, it's worth it as I have learnt more about my hearing etc in just the few weeks' correspondence I have had with my new audiologist than I have had the entire time with the NHS.

    I should also add that I don't have amplification above 20 dB at any frequency so I'm not sure if the fact that I don't get feedback is a function of the aids or the lesser amplification that I need. Maybe both?

    Yeah, I think it is a combination of both. I need quite significant amplification, but I don't think I have much feedback management with these aids.

  8. Default Sure?

    "[QUOTE=torinielsen;149697]Hi,

    My audiologist has other brands such as Widex etc, but I am quite keen on Oticon Opn's new technology. They are bringing out a Power Plus at the end of April, but there is no marketing material as yet for it. It was announced in the industry in February."

    Hi,
    how sure is that information, where you got it from?

    Very. It is being released end of April but will be officially announced at AudiologyNOW in beginning of April. My audiologist said it will likely cost 2,000 per aid.

    Hey,
    that are really good news! I'm from ger and I asked oticon ....they begged me asking my audi in case of those questions. So my audi called them: Yes a power edition is planned but when....no comment!

    Ok so far so good! Do you have more infos such as battery size, is it BTE?, connections via clip?
