Thread: How to buy a mini PRO (USB 2.0 Hearing Aid Programmer)

  1. Default There ain't NO UPGRADE to the mini Pro

    To summarize recent discussion...
    There is NO UPGRADE to the mini Pro

    Below are your current choices for Hi-Pros, extracted from >> Self-Programming-Help<<...
    --Serial Hi-Pro - uses old serial cable, and separate power cord, and USB-Serial adapter with sufficient adapter-speed
    --USB Hi-Pro (USB 1.1) hard to find, being flagged on EBay for trademark violation
    --USB Hi-Pro2 (USB 2.0 = 5x faster than USB1.1) but way more expensive!
    --USB >>mini Pro<< (USB 2.0 also fast, and cheap!)

    If you get the USB Hi-Pro (USB 1.1) being presented as an upgrade to the mini Pro then your resale value will plummet to zero because you cannot list this for sale on EBay. It will be flagged and removed. Also, it is slower/USB 1.1! Thus it's a major downgrade from the mini Pro. Don't be fooled by this upgrade gimmick.

    To summarize the GN Otometrics >>warning<< about fake Chinese Hi-Pro USB 2.0 knockoffs/counterfeits...

    "In terms of functionality, the imitation products have no high-speed capability, though they may be labeled as if they do."

    Lies: And the Lying Liars Who Tell Them. Don't believe this bullshit. cszoom1 has an axe to grind. Click the highlighted cszoom1 name and then click the View Forum Posts link. All of his forum posts are right here on this thread. What a helpful member cszoom1 has been, posting some regurgitated claim that was made before the mini Pro existed.

    cszoom1 does not own a mini Pro. I do! It is fast. Much faster than a USB 1.1 Hi-Pro. The USB 2.0 specification on the mini Pro is real. Heck, if you were to find that it is not USB 2.0 then Aliexpress will give you a full refund.

    Hey cszoom1 (with 6 forum posts all here on this thread). Do you work for GN Otometrics?

    Yes, the USB Hi-Pro (USB 1.1) is a fake Chinese Hi-Pro USB 1.1 knockoff/counterfeit. It is currently being flagged and removed on EBay for trademark/copyright violation.

    No, the mini Pro is not a fake Chinese Hi-Pro USB 2.0 knockoff/counterfeit. See page-4 of the >>mini Pro<< thread. Maybe this is why cszoom1 and GN Otometrics are so worried about it. Now I don't know that the mini Pro is a clean sheet redesign. But I do know that it is obviously not an exact clone/copy.

    After all, how difficult can it be to design a simple serial interface (I don't mean serial ports, USB/Universal-Serial-Bus is a serial interface).

    I could not understand what the purpose of dispute about USB Hi-Pro2 and USB mini Pro?! It is clear that the mini Pro is a Chinese clone.
    Perhaps you understand that only one a Fitting software update and mini Pro will to stop working ! I agree that Hi-Pro 2 is very expensive, but I hope soon to hit option that will solve this problem.

    Are you kidding horia? Did you look at the pictures on page-4 of the >>mini Pro<< thread? Please explain to me how the Right/Left cable lights moved to the opposite side of the mini-DIN connectors? That cannot happen if it's an exact clone of the Hi-Pro 2. Do you agree or disagree with this premise?

    What the hell do you mean by "Perhaps you understand that only one a Fitting software update and mini Pro will to stop working"?? That's stupid. It's a simple serial interface.

    What do you mean "I hope soon to hit option that will solve" the Hi-Pro 2 being too expensive? If this a secret mystery of yours?

    I'm betting that you also do not own a mini Pro and you are just making wild ass guesses.

    Aside from being wrong, you guys are also off topic.

    You should be posting your mini Pro bashing comments on the >>Mini-Pro - valid option or waste of money<< thread.
