    I think that Noahlink Wireless will never/ever work with stand alone fitting software. That would be giving away the family jewels. Of course I also, am just speculating.

    Oh, I'm sure it will work with standalone fitting software, just like Hi-Pro. And even if it didn't, you can always get Noah (at least for a trial period, over and over...).

    A gift from the Hearing Instrument Manufacturers' Software Association (HIMSA) to all DIYers. One device to program everything. Well that would be nice! But it sounds too good to be true. Let's wait and see.

    How is it different from Hi-Pro (for the past 15+ years)? I just consider this the next generation of universal programmer.

    BTW, given that the HA manufacturers developed their wireless capabilities independently over a few years, it makes sense that they created their own hardware. At this point, however, it probably just doesn't make sense; and, of course, it's a PITA for dispensers to use different hardware for each manufacturer.

    As an aside, the Noahlink Wireless hardware is quite inexpensive; the problem is that the only distributors of the hardware are (so far) the big six manufacturers. It's unclear what kind of pricing they will have as a standalone purchase (remember that most are just given away to dispensers with orders).

    Another thing (though most of you probably know this)... The Noahlink Wireless is just GNR's AirLink 2 with new firmware.

    I'm so new to hearing aids that I don't even know what companies comprise the Big 6. However, I would assume that Oticon is in that fraternity. My new Oticon OPN1s are promoted as employing low energy bluetooth, also known as smart bluetooth, BLE and Bluetooth5.

    Loosely, it's Oticon, Phonak, Signia, Resound, Starkey and Widex. That's not technically correct as many fall under a bigger company. (Phonak under Sonova, for instance), and there are other brands associated with those (Unitron with Phonak, Rexton with Signia, for instance)

    but it gives a rough idea
