    You may not need any other programs. The basic idea is to see if the automatic program can "solve" your hearing problems. If there are any special situations that still bother you, then adding programs that may be somewhat better in that situation is a reasonable thing to try, but so is just using the automatic program.

    There's a little more to it then that, especially for music. There's actually 3 music program possibilities: one for listening to live music (extended highs, directional mic) playing music (extended highs, omni mic (so you can hear fellow musicians) and listening to recorded music

    I am a firm believer in the KISS principle. It is easy to over complicate hearing aid "features" offered in the complicated features lists manufacturers promote/make-up. Too many drink their kool-aid.

    Ironically, the price of the Silk 3s on Buyhear is about the same as in the clinic, except without the full professional services.

    I did read through the threads linked to above before posting, thanks. I've now spent more time figuring out how to use Connexx 8, and finally found what I was looking for. I then found this thread http://www.hearingaidforums.com/show...nature-7/page3 which includes the list of programs. I now feel much better prepared for my appointment later today!

    I've read through this and several other threads. I currently have a pair of KS7 hearing aids and I'm considering the Smart Connect. I'm curious about how the phone pairing experience and clarity results you may have encountered before I buy the device. Any updates?

    Put the easytek into pairing mode and search for easytek from your phone.

    The clarity on both ends is good. Suggest you set the phone program to turn the mics way down. The easytek make your phone use really hands free.
