Thread: Cala 8 after 2 months (kinda LONG)

    I'm been in Cala 8 Demos (Costco) for a few days waiting for mine to come in. The replace my 3+ year old Kerkland 5s. Twice as expensive and worth every penny, IMO. Since I'm a somewhat experienced user, there has been virtually no adjustment period. Just and instant and very significant improvement in hearing/understanding.
    I'm an Android user and the wireless to HA function works really nice - just the pain of keeping the external transmitter handy. I have it clipped to the 2nd and offside phone pocket in my 511 shorts - along with the lanyard from my old Kirkland remote <<<< EDIt this was a fail (too far away for speech).

    Any additional tips on how to maximize the remote or what programs to get are appreciated.

    I've only had mine for under a week, but really love them so far. I wear 5.11s everyday at work, but would think to put the Phone Clip+ in a pocket. I clip it to my 5.11 polo shirt so I have easy access to it, and so it can pick up my speech when in use. I haven't yet tried them on the range with hearing protection, that will be in the next few days.

    You are correct on the Phone Clip+ needing to be closer for a good phone connection (than what I was trying) - found that out the hard way just after posting.
