After struggling with a local audiologist who had no familiarity with wireless programming and the details of how to set up hearing instruments, I finally found an outstanding source of help and information. I ended up purchasing a set of Signia Pure 7px aids from Factory Direct Hearing on-line. They have gone out of their way to be helpful. They even offered to remote in to my PC to help me solve problems getting the aids connected to my programmer. Their depth of knowledge and enthusiastic support are a most refreshing change from the "customer service" I get most other places.
I am now well into self programming, and already the end result far exceeds what I was able to get from a local audiologist.
