It'll probably save them time as well because you'll most likely end up doing more of the adjustments yourself instead of them having to spend the time and do it for you remotely.

    The only issue I see is whether they really have enough supply of these devices to sell at cost to their customer or not.

    I think that you are correct about them saving money in the long run by selling me the Expresslink - so far I have not asked them to make any adjustments to my OPN 1 hearing aids and have done it all myself so they haven't had to spend any time or ship me anything to accomplish it.

    There is a bit of a learning curve to using the Genie 2 software, however. I think I have figured out most of it but since I have no training as an audiologist I'm sure that there are some things that I am missing when it comes to programming my aids. On the other hand, I am very happy with the OPNs so the programming seems to be doing the trick for me.

    I ended up with a pretty sweet deal. BuyHear sent me a minipro, flexstrips, cs44 cables, and a USB adapter (from 2.0 to 3.0) for $175 instead of the ExpressLink3.0. I called up to make sure there wasn't a mistake and I was told that minipro is more versatile and they had some extras so they sent me that instead. Seems like I made our pretty darn good. I already got connected on my laptop to Genie2 and can program my aids. I will update the firmware shortly when the server is back up. I kept getting an error that the firmware update was not available. The BuyHear guys said the same thing happened to them a couple of times, but the FW update had no issues upon trying at a later date.

    You think getting a counterfeit programming device is a pretty sweet deal? That's crazy. If you look in the Genie 2 documentation, the only programming devices supported are:

    > HI-PRO Classic
    > HI-PRO USB
    > HI-PRO 2
    > NOAHlink
    > EXPRESSlink3
    > FittingLINK 3.0

    Good luck getting your hearing aids fixed if you brick them.

    Wow, mini Pro + cs44 cables and flexstrips for $175 is a good price. The mini Pro alone is currently priced at $208.

    Plus you can use the mini Pro to program other manufacturer's hearing aids instead of being limited to Oticon-manufactured-only hearing aids.

    I started a new thread for >>How to program the Oticon Opn<< in the DIY section.

    Thanks, I was able to get everything connected by reviewing the diagram in your post.

    Please don't spread FUD here; the Mini-Pro is functionally identical to a HI-PRO USB. I realize that ignorance doesn't prevent people from posting here, but I don't understand why you'd bother.

    Is this in response to cszoom1's comment about the Mini-Pro being a counterfeit device?

    I think maybe you missed the major war going on a little while back in the programming section of the forum about what works, what's legit, what's not, and who cares?, etc...
