JDSKIDSTEER What cost would i be able to hope to pay for the interests?

This appeared to be exorbitant to me and looking at costs found on the web affirmed my sentiments. Does the cost increment/contrast appear to be over the edge and when do you trade off the "little problem" for a bundle more $$?

Much obliged,

cindie

I was given quotes around and under $5000 Canadian over the most recent 6 months for an arrangement of Widex 115's with remote and fittings. Continuously shop no less than 3 better places for cost and administration. You should recognize what is happening in your general vicinity regardless of the possibility that you need to go into a downtown area. In the event that you live in the States or Canada i need to state the cost being asked of you is WAY TO HIGH.

sanmyn This is a followup to the post I made in February: I have one Widex Passion 110 in my left ear. The correct ear is past offer assistance.

I have had the Passion now for 8 months without any issues. I utilize a shut tulip medium size and the guide is so agreeable I overlook I have it on.

My one protestation is spilling batteries. I live in Thailand and they are possbily influenced by the warmth and moistness. A few batteries keep going for 4-5 days however most begin releasing an orange substance into the shell inside 2-3 days. I have attempted the Widex Battery, the Duracell and the Eveready. All break about the same.

The Passion has extraordinarily enhanced my life. Presently i can hold discussion in a boisterous or calm condition and hear TV quite well.

I will be in San Francisco in December and expect to have the guide professionally balanced and possibly experiment with some different brands for an extra.

I tried the Dot 20 however was not permitted to attempt it for more than a brief timeframe in the vender's office.

My cost for the Passion 110 was about $1,800. I attempted yet ruled against the remote.

Has onyone had involvement with the Dot 20? I would love to get notification from you.

She tried my listening ability with alot of various tones with the amplifiers on. Ran some other test and afterward as we talked, particularly her voice as she was attempting to get her voice up to the pinnacle. The individual tone 100 up were bobbing here and there and she talked. She at that point took that information and modified my Unitron 16's. She sent both guides with me, and I am right now wearing the Passion's. The enthusiasm can't be balanced on the guide, yet everything must be done through a remote control. You can have up to 3 projects and volume.

She needed me to attempt the Passion's as they have around 25 of these out and are getting only incredible reactions and the primary concern she is hearing is that they (clients) are showing signs of improvement lucidity, sound more normal and smoother. You are not assume to require a phone program, accordingly no t-loop.

The interests are giving me diverse sounds - I like this. I am getting some extra lucidity as well. The things I don't care for about the Passion is the 10 battery and no t-loop. They are little, and the shading can be changed in the workplace as she accomplished for me. I picked a copper shading, however the hot pink and lime green were pretty as well. We didn't talk about cost, however I belive this is alot more costly if my memory serves me.

I have attempted an assortment of portable hearing assistants since this all began...with first HIS, what a joke contrasted with my present one, I attempted the delta 6000's and the Vigo Pro. Couldn't get the lucidity, input issues amended.

Current audiologist I have attempted the Audeo V (which we have totally precluded now), Next 16 (major contender), and now the Passion.j

Expectation this aides somone considering one of these Aids.

May I know why you discount Audeo V totally? which adaptation of Passion are u attempting?

i am picking between Audeo V and Passion 115 as well. by and by did not discover excessively contrast with the exception of that Passion sound is more charming. be that as it may, Passion is a great deal more EX

Pammy Sue Have worn it for around 5 weeks and cherish it. Am wearing the "open-ear tip", washing the eartip week after week. Am pondering about the "NanoCare waxguard" and how regularly it ought to be supplanted. It looks clear, however could there be wax develop which I'm not seeing? How regularly would others say others are discovering they have to change that "waxguard?"

Cedric03 The issue with custom molds is that it shuts the ear. My high and low tones are flawless, so with a "shut" framework i can't be helpen, it must be open. I speculate the wire is too short, friday i will attempt a bigger one, trusting that will offer assistance!

lovespaper I was informed that they could make custom ear molds to supplant the tip on any earpiece. When I went to my audi. she could attempt around 4 unique tips until the point when I found the one that was generally agreeable. I had gigantic tingling from them in my left ear.

Good fortunes.

Cedric03 Hi, i am trying the enthusiasm 110's for around 2 weeks now. Prior to these i tried the Resound be, and the resonate Dot, however both of these made an inner clamor, that was outlandish for me to stand. So now i'm attempting the enthusiasm 110 in both ears. I'm content with the gadgets, however i have an issue with the ear tips. In my correct ear there is no genuine issue, the tip turns out about twice consistently, particularly while i'm eating, however i can live with that. The issue is my left ear. That one is somewhat littler, and the littler open tips are to little, en drop out constantly. The greater ones are to enormous, and harmed my ear. Presently I have the littler ones, and they put a grapple, yet now the sound is not comparable to it was, on the grounds that the tip is not sufficiently profound. I truly need to purchase the interests, yet not when they hurt or drop out. Does anybody know how to take care of this issue?

sanmyn I live in Thailand and am limited by just two hearing focuses in my town south of Bangkok. I can purchase either Widex or Resound and have attempted both. I am another HA client with almost no hearing in my correct ear and restricted in my left. So I just need one guide. I attempted both the Dot 20 and the Passion 115 however was permitted just a one week trial on the Passion. I could just attempt the Dot while in the business office.

So I purchased the Passion 115. I have had it now for two months. I utilize the shut arch little size as was recommended by the young woman vender. There is no audiologist in the town. It appears to work fine however I have no correlation. It has unquestionably enhanced my life now having the capacity to hear discussions. I didn't purchase the remote, as subsequent to attempting it I felt it not worth the cost.

Both the Dot 20 and the Passion 115 were shut in value, the Passion being slightly more. So far I am content with the Widex Passion.

The PA-110 has 2 accessible listening programs:

- ace or "programmed mode" as you call it in addition to one other from beneath:

- TV mode (supports the high frequencies, improves discourse)

- Music mode (gives a lift to the low frequencies, kills clamor diminishment)

- Acclimatization mode (on the off chance that you are another client that needs less pick up)

- or another ace mode (where changes are made by your preferring).

The PA-115 has 3 accessible projects:

- ace in addition to two of the accompanying:

- TV mode

- Music mode

- Acclimatization mode

- Comfort mode

- Audibility extender (I trust that is the thing that it is called. It basically moves high recurrence sounds down into a recurrence go that the client can hear on the off chance that they have almost no hearing in the high frequencies)

- or once more, another ace mode that can be changed to be not the same as the primary ace program

Note that you require a remote control to change these projects, generally the listening device stays in the ace, completely programmed mode.

Expectation this makes a difference.

I am another comer of this gathering.

For PA110, it has 2 accessible projects; in the event that they are

Also, one TV mode, so it is add up to 3 programs.

Additionally, in the event that it is all the same in PA Series like 115.

Refresh: Well, in the wake of encountering the PA-115 in a loud situation, I have chosen that the additional cost WAS justified, despite all the trouble. There was a major hop in cost (~70%) ...which is nauseating on such a variety of levels...but there is an execution help that I believe is justified, despite all the trouble given the measure of time I'm in uproarious situations.

world89 Wow..I didn't know the value cited to you was not for a 115. That cost is unquestionably approach to high. It was $1,400 too high for the 115. You'll unquestionably have the capacity to show signs of improvement cost.

Good fortunes!

lovespaper Thank you for the guidance. You both sound like you are extremely astute and knowledgable and experienced. I will look around a bit and see what I think of. I will likewise attempt to consult with her; who knows? She may take the plunge.

Much appreciated once more.

At that cost, you ought to in any event be getting the PA-115s (15 channels and three projects) with a remote tossed in too. And still, at the end of the day, I think you are paying an excessive amount of. I think it will be justified regardless of your while to look around... in any case, possibly that is the going rate in your general vicinity.

Concerning regardless of whether the additional $ is justified, despite all the trouble... the extra advantage likely does not surpass the extra cost.

Going from PA-105 to PA-110 gives you 10 channels versus 5, and in addition an extra program. The additional program just issues in the event that you have a remote since that is the main way you will have the capacity to switch programs (for instance for sitting in front of the TV, tuning in to music, and so forth.).

On the off chance that your misfortune is generally level, the extra channels will likely not make a big deal about a distinction. In any case, on the off chance that you have a precarious incline, at that point the better changes that the PA-110 (or PA-115 so far as that is concerned) will permit, may enhance things for you.

Did I see a distinction? Yes...but a moderately minimal change. Be that as it may, considering I will keep these 4 or 5 years...I persuaded myself that I would wind up thinking twice about it on the off chance that I turned out poorly the PA-115's. I'll choose without a doubt toward the finish of the trial.

Good fortunes, and let us comprehend what you choose.

world89 I can just say how I for one approach the topic of amplifiers and their cost, however you should remember that in spite of the fact that I am not coming in mixture, I can manage the cost of the most costly listening devices out there IF I am cautious with my cash. I spare cash between listening devices so I can bear the cost of the following pair.

For me having the capacity to hear serenely is one of my most astounding needs in life. It influences me regular throughout the day aside from when I am distant from everyone else. So I assume there are two parts to this: that I can hear and that I can hear serenely. The first is simple, however it sounds like the second one is the thing that you are battling with the present moment. For me there would be little civil argument in my mind that I would pay the additional cash for the more open to listening devices. My true serenity is undermined amid the day on the off chance that I am being irritated or tormented by my portable hearing assistants, I wind up noticeably crabby and irate, and in this manner I am additionally none to charming to be around.

I trust that makes a difference

lovespaper Good counsel to all. Things being what they are, is it worth $2,200 to wipe out those small, irritating sounds like street clamor, the air blowing through the vents in the auto and at home.....? I figure that is simply something I will by and by need to choose. Any understanding would be valued.

world89 From botches I have made in picking audiologists I have presumed that it is best to pick an audiologist who has no less than 8 years of experience (if not more), has a lot of involvement with the specific portable amplifiers you are purchasing from them, has enough experience fitting individuals with your specific kind of hearing misfortune, and is not very glad to call the listening device organization's accessible if the need arises audiologist for programing guidance when important. Lamentably there are some audiologists who will just lie in the event that you put forth these inquiries, as I discovered, to get your business. In any case, I don't think about your specific inquiry.

I trust that makes a difference.

lovespaper She is simply giving the typical 2 year guarantee. My other inquiry is do you surmise that audiologists that work in a Dr.s office approach their finding or do you think somebody who just improves suited?

Much appreciated!

world89 lovespaper,

The cost appears to be about $1,400 too high, however I assume it relies on upon how long of protection, and so on, you audiologist is giving that.

Best, World89

lovespaper I am a first time client of portable amplifiers. I saw an audiologist who suggested the Widex Passion 105's.

Does the cost increment/distinction appear to be over the edge and when do you bargain the "little problem" for a pack more $$?

Much appreciated,

cindie

world89 I am happy to peruse that you have had a decent involvement with the Pures. It is conceivable that the issue may have been more with my past audiologist who fitted me with them. Maybe he didn't program them accurately. Or, then again maybe they simply don't work for my kind of hearing misfortune.

jbobp I have Pure 500s and have only great to say in regards to them. I haven’t worn Siemens HAs previously, however I totally differ that Siemens essentially added “bells and whistles” to build the cost.

For me the sound is regular, my input issues were effectively dispensed with, and I adore the Tek.

As I comprehend the listening device fitting procedure what works for individual doesn’t dependably work for another, so it the Pures worked for you then you are on the ball.

As I expressed in the past I loved my Dots, however I adore the Pures.

world89 I truly have no good thing to say in regards to anything made by Siemen subsequent to attempting the Pure700s (I didn't attempt alternate guides you specified), nonetheless you should remember that I have an uncommon sort of hearing misfortune that is turn around incline (I hear high frequencies well and low frequencies severely).

With the Pure700s the sound was unnatural, awful directionality, the blue tooth sent terrible quality sound to my portable amplifiers, I couldn't comprehend discourse until the point that the volume was deplorably loud...well I figure I would need to concede they were incredible with discourse in clamor. Be that as it may, obviously they don't have an expanded band width which is fundamental for common sound, which is somewhat unusual in light of the fact that they have something like 17 channels. I think there are vastly improved listening devices out there. My assessment of Siemenn is that they basically included a bundle of fancy odds and ends (TEK and bluetooth), without thinking about quality, so they could charge a great deal of cash for them. I simply acknowledged I most likely stable sort of intense , yet they were torment for me.

thanks2 Did you attempt the Siemens Pure or the Motion?

In the event that so what did you think.

I did a trial on both...

Troublesome exchange offs.

Must settle on a choice in a couple of days.

world89 I flew once again from India on Friday and rested for right around a strong day I show Asian societies and religions, yet work in India.

I had a few changes in accordance with the Widex, and they are working truly well at this point. I am truly astounded. I truly like these portable hearing assistants, and the programing is so essential. I answered to you in another string that I will discover how they are programed and hit you up about that.

Likewise with me. I backpedal to my audiologist next Wednesday and will ask that we attempt the open fit vaults, lessen the lows and if essential increment the highs. A remarkable inverse of what they think I ought to have yet ideally they will tune in as what I have now (custom form, albeit open vent, with increment to "ordinary" in the lows) does not work. On my last visit I cleared out the artcile for the audiologist to peruse - ideally he has!

HA-User - a debt of gratitude is in order for the audit of the Widex Passion.

Much appreciated

I have an invert slant. I utilize the open ear-tips. Attempted the shut ear-tip which was prescribed by the audiologist (keeping in mind the end goal to get the lows up to the objective level), yet I very much want open (since I have "typical" hearing in the highs).

Hello Barbara,

You and I have a similar kind of turn around slant hearing misfortune. Numerous audiologists don't program our portable amplifiers effectively and that is the reason they don't work. Regularly they add to much pick up in the low frequencies to get them to "typical" range, however that doesn't function admirably for a large portion of us.

The accompanying connection is to an article about our kind of hearing misfortune and how our listening ability should be redressed. On the off chance that you needed you could offer it to your audiologist on the off chance that you are as yet having issues. http://www.hearinglosshelp.com/artic...eslopelong.htm

The Widex Passions are working entirely well for me up until now.

HA-User Okay, here is my survey of the Passion PA-110 (sorry...it's long)Specs

- 10 Channels

- 10 kHz Bandwidth

- 2 accessible projects

- Adaptive directional mic framework

- Volume control through remote as it were

- Program change through remote onlyPersonal Configuration

- Open ear-tip

- Monaural fitting (one ear as it were)

- No remote (so volume control or program change not accessible)

- Reverse slopeDiscreteness

- Invisible from the front

- Mostly imperceptible from the side (would need to look *very* near observe the minor wire driving into the trench (frequently darkened by hair).

- Somewhat undetectable from the back and 5-and 7-o'clock position (i.e. behind and to one side or left), contingent upon hair length and ear shape.

- This gadget is *extremely* little; pictures don't do it equity, you have to see it face to face

- Claims to be the littlest beneficiary in-waterway style available.

- My "life partner" hasn't seen I’ve been wearing it yet!Physical Comfort

- I don't feel the BTE sitting on my ear at all since it is so little and light.

- Took a few endeavors to get the right ear-tip and grapple estimate. At first without grapple, the tip worked out yet with the stay, it remains set up and is greatly agreeable to wear. Battery Life

- Rated at 125 hours (which is “best in class” for a gadget utilizing a size 10 battery)

- I've been getting around 110-115 hours (8 x 14hr days)...not very what the datasheet claims, however that is still great and I'm satisfied.Handling

- Easy to position the primary lodging behind the ear and embed ear-tip in channel.

- It utilizes a size 10 battery (the littlest size), so it's additionally testing to supplant, however that is the same with any portable amplifier that uses a size 10 battery. On the off chance that you have fingertip aptitude challenges, at that point this most likely isn’t for you.Initial tuning (utilizing Widex Sensogram suggested settings)

- The one thing that struck be instantly was that the suggested settings were great. Widex has a technique (called a Sensogram) that measures how the portable amplifier is performing while in your ear and makes changes in like manner. The first occasion when I got portable hearing assistants (another brand), they sounded fine in the allocator's office, however terrible out in "this present reality". The Passion was usable and agreeable appropriate from the get-go. Without a doubt, there were a couple of things that I chose I needed changed following half a month and subsequent to encountering distinctive sound conditions, however my underlying impression was “wow, this sounds great”.Use in calm condition

- The Passion performs extremely well in a calm situation. On the other hand, it should.

- Ambient sounds are listened, however not diverting.

- No issues with discussions; understanding individuals is positively less demanding than unaided.

- No “circuit noise” is seen (not at all like my past hearing aids)Speech in boisterous condition

- Much simpler to hear side traveler and back travelers while driving. Street and auto commotions are not very diverting. The sound of the marker is a great deal more discernible.

- In eatery, can absolutely hear voices significantly more obviously. An undesirable impact is that I can likewise hear discussions from different tables and I would have anticipated that the amplifier would be significantly more “directional” in this listening situation (where just the voices specifically in front would be listened), however then there is a tradeoff to that also (e.g. on the off chance that you are sitting at a round table, or hearing somebody adjacent to you). I think this will simply take some acclimatization on my part. Primary concern is I incline toward hearing the discussions while I could scarcely make out anything when unaided. Music

- My early introduction (with tuning in to music in the auto) was that the Passion was taking care of it genuinely well (wasn’t extraordinary, yet wasn’t terrible either). I heard odds and ends in melodies that I hadn’t heard some time recently.

- The basic analysis was tuning in to “The Three Tenors” on my home sound framework. The outcomes were not very great. Same for tuning in to a live soprano vocalist. Once the vocalist hit the highs, it was exceptionally offensive.

- The Passion PA-110 model offers two projects: the default “fully automatic” program and one which could be set to a “music program” that switches off clamor diminishment/discourse increase, sets the directional mics to omnidiretional (i.e. to catch sound from all headings) and changes the input crossing out mode to non-versatile. It additionally gives a low recurrence support (more bass). Since I don’t have a remote, there’s no reason for empowering a music program (since I wouldn’t have the capacity to change to it). I may get a remote to test the music program to check whether it would enhance the music encounter (in spite of the fact that I’m not too excited about bearing a remote. A “on-board” program catch would be favored. Volume

- Since I don’t have a remote, I should depend on the programmed volume control of the gadget. I need to state that I am extremely inspired. There has just been one event where I believed I could have utilized more volume. Claim voice

- No objections here. Yes there was a tad bit of change in accordance with hearing my increased voice, yet it wasn’t repulsive. Note this is an open, non-blocking help and I’m just wearing one guide, so it might be distinctive if utilizing shut or custom ear tips. Uproarious “impulse” clamors

- I haven’t encountered any circumstances where boisterous, sudden clamors have been startling or seen to be too uproarious and uncomfortable.Wind

- Have been in some exceptionally breezy circumstances and the Passion brings about the ideal result. Criticism/Whistling

- If I container my hand totally finished my ear, there is criticism (which is not out of the ordinary).

- In regular utilize, I have not experienced input notwithstanding when wearing a hood.Use with phone

- On a few events, when I raised a telephone to my ear, there was some underlying input, yet the criticism canceller kicked in and wiped out the criticism immediately.

- Have not had any issues utilizing a land-line telephone or cell phone. Use with TV

- A “TV program” can be added to the Passion that enhances the settings for TV tuning in. I trust the lows are decreased and highs underscored more. Since I don’t have a remote to change programs, I basically balanced the sound settings on my TV and that appears to function admirably. Use with earphones

- “Open-ear” style earphones that sit daintily finished your ears work fine (they are the ones that typically have a wipe covering the earpiece).

- Large, “closed-back” earphones that totally encase your ears make input and can't be utilized (in my experience).

- “Ear-bud” style earphones would not fit in your waterway since the beneficiary ear-tip is in there… so not usable.Durability

- Cannot rate this. It appears to be sufficiently tough, yet the truth will surface eventually if this gadget will last 3-4 years and on the off chance that it can be repaired should it be required.Modifications I’d get a kick out of the chance to see

- Onboard program button...but then that would make it bigger, which would be undesirable. In the event that they could make sense of an approach to empower program changes without making a bigger device…that would be amazing.

- Matte dark mouthpiece network rather than sparkly platinum. The gleaming surface reflects light and may get someone’s attention. The gadget is little and undetectable, so why have a surface that may pull in consideration from a specific point? Esteem: Is advantage more prominent than cost

- With my experience up until this point, I trust the advantage exceeds the cost of this gadget. Main concern is I can unquestionably hear superior to being unaided. Does it enhance my life? Yes.

- obviously, in a perfect world the cost ought to be half of what it is…but debating whether gadgets include the full esteem that they order is another talk

- This model was 60% the cost of the top of the line PA-115 gadget (that has 15 channels and an additional program). As I would like to think, I don't trust that the additional advantage (assuming any) of the top of the line gadget legitimizes the fundamentally higher cost. Notwithstanding, I haven’t attempted the top of the line gadget, so I can't state without a doubt. General Rating

- Very Satisfied. There's a couple of things in a perfect world that would be distinctive, yet as with any item, there's tradeoffs. Would I prescribe this item to a companion? Yes.

Expectation this helps other people that might be thinking about this listening device.

world89 I saw a few people writing in with invert incline hearing misfortune and it sounds like the interests work for it. Is this so? Assuming this is the case, do you have shut molds or the open ones? I am as of now giving them a shot and I have RS misfortune as well.

Much appreciated

xbulder delta 8000, is old tecnology - so either enthusiasm or speck 30 would be a ton better. While Im not a Widex fan, I would state i would favor energy over the spot, as i would lean toward a HI with an a broadened bandwith. I accept there is additionally a mind instrument which appears to be far better.

jerseyguy I simply requested a couple of Widex Passion’s today. I had been thinking about the ReSound Dot 30 or the Oticon delta 8000. In any case, my audiologist unequivocally prescribed the Passion, she said they work better in a nosey domain. This is my first time wearing a HA and might want to know how the other HA think about.

Likewise the Passion’s are costing me $5800.00, is that a reasonable cost? They are a considerable measure, yet I contemplate the going rate.

Khenkels Sorry for the delay...but yes you can. I do this constantly.

Woland My audiologist has prescribed the Passion and it's urging to peruse the great reports here. I'm getting my guide in two weeks, and I have an inquiry that she couldn't reply. Is it conceivable to utilize normal earphones with this portable amplifier if the measures of the earphones go over the whole unit? Has anybody attempted this?

I've had an in-the-ear help in the past and have delighted in having the capacity to utilize general earphones.

Khenkels Hi Irene:

I am sad that you are having this issue. Be persevering and have them call Widex. My Audi gets on the telephone with them on the off chance that she is having an issue!

I have not had this issue.

irene I've been utilizing Passion for the most recent week. I truly like them, yet I have one truly irritating issue. It appears when the volume of my voice or sound around me gets high, I will distinguish a tick/snap sound. It happens a couple time in a sentence. It is by all accounts related with the volume. The audiologist and Widex client bolster have never known about this.

Any other person have this? Any arrangements?

Khenkels For those that wouldl get a kick out of the chance to know:

I got the remote to the Widex Passion today. Exceptionally noticeable and easy to understand. You can have up to 5 programs - I just have 3, or more volume that goes from 1 - 13 in levels. It accompanies a little dark case that can be cut to your belt or it has a little silver ring that you can cut on your tote. I can see where you could put it on a cord and hang it from your neck if needed.

Despite everything I like the interests...

It is difficult to trust that following 41/2 months, the right (I trust) HA has been found.

My all the best for everybody out there; be steady and have persistence. My best exhortation is to locate an educated Audi!

Khenkels I did not scrutinize the cost - but rather realized that the Passion's were alot more costly than my installment for the Audeo V's. My Audi (we talk about alot through email) just disclosed to me that they were having an extraordinary and the Passions were simply $200.00 more than my Audeo V's. THAT is GREAT!!

Khenkels I needed to perceive how those that have been wearing the Widex Passion's for some time are doing with them. Do regardless you like them? Had any issues? Would despite everything you buy them today given the decision and data you have now?

I am enjoying these seemingly insignificant details. The clearness and the diverse sounds I am hearing is better than average. Today, I heard things where others didn't. Amazing! I imagine that is a first.

Khenkels Went to my Audiologist (third visit), and she astounded me when I strolled in and she said she had another guide for me to attempt - Widex Passion. This HA is stunning to watch the programming. She tried my listening ability with alot of various tones with the portable amplifiers on. Ran some other test and after that as we talked, particularly her voice as she was attempting to get her voice up to the pinnacle. The individual tone 100 up were ricocheting here and there and she talked. She at that point took that information and customized my Unitron 16's. She sent both guides with me, and I am as of now wearing the Passion's. The energy can't be balanced on the guide, however everything must be done through a remote control. You can have up to 3 projects and volume.

She needed me to attempt the Passion's as they have around 25 of these out and are getting only incredible reactions and the primary concern she is hearing is that they (clients) are showing signs of improvement clearness, sound more regular and smoother. You are not assume to require a phone program, in this manner no t-loop.

The interests are giving me distinctive sounds - I like this. I am getting some extra clearness as well. The things I don't care for about the Passion is the 10 battery and no t-loop. They are little, and the shading can be changed in the workplace as she accomplished for me. I picked a copper shading, however the hot pink and lime green were pretty as well. We didn't talk about cost, yet I belive this is alot more costly if my memory serves me.

I have attempted an assortment of portable amplifiers since this all began...with first HIS, what a joke contrasted with my present one, I attempted the delta 6000's and the Vigo Pro. Couldn't get the clearness, input issues adjusted.

Current audiologist I have attempted the Audeo V (which we have totally precluded now), Next 16 (major contender), and now the Passion.j

Expectation this aides somone considering one of these Aids.

DaveD Got the new forms yesterday thus far so great. No sharp edges on these.

DaveD Well, I now have had the custom ear molds for seven days. THEY HURT! In the wake of slicing into both ears because of being so thin I am backpedaling to my Audi tomorrow. The remote was fun at first yet I generally backpedal to the first program. I will return it tomorrow as the cost is $300 with no genuine preferred standpoint. I have backpedaled to the Diva's until the point when I check whether the ear pieces can be settled. This might be the finish of the street.

Mine was turning out at first yet is quite recently tight now with the bigger vault and three wire (I think) rather than two. Good fortunes. George

DaveD Went back for a modification yesterday and chosen to have molds made for custom recipient's as the standard ones continue turning out. Still exceptionally inspired! I do like the remote as well.

seg615 I wor Widex cic for a long time. These are VERY little, recipient in ear dispenses with impediment, don't know you have them. I tired Starkey 1200 open fit and Sieman and voice rec much more terrible on both. The tubes did not stay put in ear, and were bad in loud circumstances. This is fresh out of the plastic new innovation, littlest guides on mkt and completely programmed. I didn't purchase remote as my audi and Widex rep felt it was unecessary and I feel they were right.

I am not a specialist, simply recognize what works for me, and these are the best I have attempted.

xbulder passion HAS TO BE a superior instrument... It is another instrument

discharged @ the EUHA 2007 (end of year)

The extensive bandwith in itself is a major in addition to!

dannyb I'm inquisitive to know whether anybody has attempted both the Delta and the Passion to think about?

Danny.

xbulder delta is a fairly old instrument (3 years) so the more up to date instruments

either enthusiasm or Dot have more components at the cost..

Only inquisitive as my time for testing is nearing the end; have you been utilizing HA in the past and what other HA did you consider? Why the Passion over say the Dot or Delta? Much obliged, George

seg615 Been utilizing them for about month. Can't generally discover any blame with them. Awesome in uproarious circumstances and additionally calm on one.

GeorgeJ Hi Laura, When I initially arrived home with it and strolled over the rock garage I was overwhelmed by the striking crunch. I discover I hear parts that I already missed.

I developed my hair a bit in expectation of needing to cover the HA so I regularly drive my hair back finished behind the ears. I get the shrieking criticism frequently when I do this and additionally the SCRAPING of my fingers over the receivers (beyond any doubt know it is working). Else I overlook it is there. The previous evening I took it out and thought I'd lost it for a few minutes. Pulled the pads off the couch, enrolled my young men to look, at that point found I'd overlooked and returned it in - Doh!

Cheers, George

Minniemarshmallow I at last got my Widex Passion today. Initial introduction? The shrieking drives me insane. I tuck my hair behind my ear and each time my hand approaches the guide, there is a repulsive shrieking sound. Is that ordinary? Will the HIS modify that??

Aside from that, with regards to comfort, it's amazing. Difficult to advise it's there! In any case, my ear waterway is tiny to the point that even the littlest vault can scarcely go in.

Also, I can HEAR!! A wide range of sounds!!!

DaveD I likewise got the bigger arches yesterday and it is helping them remain set up. The remote is programed to the correct guides you have so it is not changed by different remotes. I have just utilized it for one day and I don't theink I will utilize it once a day. I will take it to the films and theater and also wherever I expect an abnormal state of foundation commotion. I will post again afer a couple of days of utilization.

GeorgeJ I was inquired as to whether I needed the remote yet did not need one additionally thing to whine with so I declined. I'd be intrigued to know how you end up utilizing it on an everyday premise. Likewise on the off chance that somebody with a similar HA makes a modification and you are beside them can change their settings also?

I'm utilizing the ear tip open arches (exceptionally negligible) and in the wake of getting the bigger size (and in addition a more drawn out wire, #3) it stays pleasantly set up. Still inspired. - George

DaveD Got the remote today. Three discretionary settings and volume control. All settings should be possible together or L & R. Batteries are enduring 5 days at 15 hours for each day. Lucidity in various commotion circumstances and directional awarness recognize these frame all the others I have utilized. I have a couple of days left of the trial and I am as yet awed!

DaveD Anyone utilizing the remote? Remarks?

DaveD Day five and I am exceptionally awed. I am on a two week trial yet they look like attendants to me.

GeorgeJ My last test showed the accompanying:

250 - right 15 remaining 20

500 - right 20 remaining 25

750 - right 20 remaining 30

1000 - right 15 remaining 30

1500 - right 10 remaining 30

2000 - right 10 remaining 25

3000 - right 20 remaining 40

4000 - right 50 remaining 60

6000 - right 50 remaining 50

8000 - right 40 remaining 55

audiogal George, would you be able to please post the hearing edges for your correct ear? Much obliged

GeorgeJ I neglected to include, I have kept it in normally 15+ hrs every day and changed the battery every Monday morning so the claim of 125 hours appears to be sensible. This was an issue contrasting it and the Oticon Delta as I would not like to wind up without control. George

GeorgeJ Two weeks and I stay glad. I have an open fit and at first they flew out continually. Went to longer wire and bigger vault thingy and they remain in truly well. Intermittently I will touch the wire to push it in however generally alright.

As a first time client I have no gauge for correlation. That said I am satisfied with enhanced comprehension at an uproarious supper gathering, clearness and scope of music, and so on. I figure the inquiry will be the point at which I get one for the correct ear (which is alright with the exception of hf). - George

seg615 Dave,

I have had dig for three weeks. Additionally require the stay with the open fit ear tip. They appear to show signs of improvement every week, batteries most recent 7 days with no issue 10-14 hrs dailiy. I additionally wear glasses with no obvious issue I can't fiond a negative aboput them Was wearing cic for a long time and these overwhelm them in boisterous circumstances, motion pictures and music.

DaveD Day three with the Passion's:

Better directional mindfulness

Sound reaction appears to be quicker

Diva batteries endured two days, I am on day three with these (I was advised to expect 5-7 Days)

I thought situating would be an issue at to begin with, however after the initial two tries it’s a non issue

Discretionary grapple is a need for me

I wear glasses full time and it is not an issue

Stay tuned!

DaveD I am getting two of them tomorrow. I utilize the Diva in both ears now. I will post my assessment soon.

I at last went in for tests, and helps at my families support, so this was not a move I was excited about. Likewise two things to waste time with is simply double the bother. That said I envision that these units are about in the same class as they get. The lucidity is incredible, the battery rating is longer than the opposition, number of channels for tuning to my case and so forth. I don't think I would be as content with items accessible a year prior.

I cleared out it with the audi that I would utilize the one for some time and if two appeared all together not far off I would think of it as at that point. - George

xbulder generally you should..

what was your audi recomendation...

GeorgeJ I am a first time ha client so I have no reference point. I have direct misfortune in left ear no matter how you look at it and hf misfortune in both ears. I am beginning attempting the Passion in left ear just, and it has an eminent effect for me as far as what I hear in discussions, music, and so on. It feels and sounds exceptionally normal. Following more than two days I barely see it is there, in spite of the fact that in the event that I evacuate it I am immediately helped to remember what I miss. Sort of makes me think about whether I ought to consider the correct ear to make up the hf. - George

xbulder it ought to be a decent instrument..

alhouth the perceptibility extender is something it had not been positively

survey by any stretch of the imagination.
