    Well, it is a great product for online clinics/sites to more easily market /support. Buyhear must be excited. It should ease support for such businesses. I'll give credit to Resound for opening the market further. I'd don't see other premium brands rushing to compete. That would destroy their relationship with premium minded clinics.

    Does this signal a "marketing channel" change for them? I had always understood they were averse to that.

    It certainly makes it easier for companies like Buyhear. They must send out a kit for other aids. That kit is supposed to be sent back and forth but some here are holding onto them for longer periods. That increases their cost.

    Compare that to using the cloud. Now added equipment required. Customer can get an adjustment any time without the need to have the kit shipped to them.

    Looks like a win-win for that channel.

    Sure its not a late April fools joke

    Hearing 3D ? That a visual term.

    I know you eat with your eyes, i have never heard (pun intended) of eyes being able to hear.

    Maybe it all tru, you never know. Only time will tell.

    My take on it and the hype / spin is.
    If Linx was a 50% improvement on Verso, and Cala is improvement on Linx, now 3D is 50% better than Link.
    Then anything before the Verso could only have been a cork or an ear trumpet. Certainly it could never have actually heard anything.

    I see Resound has now released the iPhone app for this aid. Has anyone actually bought these aids? Or is it still just an announcement?

    Seems like they are available as are listed on Buyhear.com. Interestingly, they are less expensive than the Linx2s and at least currently claim to have manufacturer's warranty!

    I stand corrected.
    apparently 3D is also an audio term, here is just a short extract from Wikipiedia

    3-D audio (processing) is the spatial domain convolution of sound waves using Head-related transfer functions. It is the phenomenon of transforming sound waves (using head-related transfer function or HRTF filters and cross talk cancellation techniques) to mimic natural sounds waves, which emanate from a point in a 3-D space. It allows trickery of the brain using the ears and auditory nerves, pretending to place different sounds in different 3-D locations upon hearing the sounds, even though the sounds may just be produced from just 2 speakers (dissimilar to surround sound). [

    Using
    head-related transfer functions and reverberation, the changes of sound on its way from the source (including reflections from walls and floors) to the listener's ear can be simulated. These effects include localization of sound sources behind, above and below the listener.




    OR IN OTHER WORDS A TYPE OF SPACIAL SENSE TECHNOLOGY. - NOTHING NEW THERE THEN

    Also, 3D is not a visual term.

    I don't think people who have good hearing are all that good at locating sounds which are above or below them. If someone is calling down from a balcony they will often say "I'm up here" without that information people will often look left and right unable to locate the sound.

    Does anyone know if i could programme these with Resound Aventa 3.10.

    I spoke to a Costco Audi and she said she thought i would have to upgrade to Aventa 4? Can seen to find Aventa 4 anywhere?

    Regards Ian
