Thread: Siemens EasyTek issues

  1. Default Siemens EasyTek issues

    I've been having an interesting go-round with my audi lately, and I would like to know if anyone is having similar issues. I say that Siemens EasyTek technology isn't up to the task, he is determined to get to the root of the problem.

    The situation goes like this:

    Every day I call my wife and chat with her on the way home from work. As I approach a stop sign, I look both ways for traffic. When I turn my head to the left, the right hearing aid switches to program 1 and beeps once. As I turn my head back, the aid switches back to the Bluetooth program, program 4, and beeps 4 times. As I complete the head turn all the way to the right, the left aid switches to program 1, with one beep. The as I look forward again, it switches back to program 4.

    Once I arrive home, I begin the process of gathering my things from their various places within my car, and exiting the vehicle. This apparently produces a lot of head movement because the aids are beeping incessantly. It's gotten to the point that as I pull in the driveway, I tell my wife "I'm home," and hang up.

    The drive home is when this problem is most prominent, and I normally don't talk to anyone else when driving. Most other phone calls are made sitting in my easy chair, so I am typically sitting rather still, but I have noticed it happening on occasion. Once I was discussing my yard with someone, and as I looked around the yard, it was extremely bothersome.

    So my audi gave me a different set of aids to try, and the same thing happened. Today he replaced my EasyTek, but I think he forgets that this is my third EasyTek. He tried to blame my phone at one point, but this is my second phone since getting the aids. He says he will definitely fix this, I say it can't be fixed.

    He claims none of his other customers deal with this issue, so I wanted to get a feel for how many people on this forum experience these sorts of problems.

    You aren't the only one who has described the problem. One of them humorously said that it must be his fat head blocking the signal. The device works using magnetic resonance rather than radio waves and is well aged technology that's behind the current offerings from others.

    Well, that would actually be a step backwards, since then I would have no hands free solution at all. I think I'll choose the annoyance over that.

    Thanks for your input though.

    I've frequently blamed my thick skull.

    The magnetic resonance information is useful, I'll keep that in mind.

    I was hoping to get feedback from others experiencing the same thing.

    I've pretty much decided that when my insurance comes due again I'm switching brands.
