Adjusting the America Hears FreedomAD aids

2008-10-25 19:47:00 in Digital Hearing Aids by  GrampaDennis
Gale made the proposal in another string that we should begin a string particularly to share encounters and guidance for programming the America Hears FreedomAD arrangement helps with their Virtual Office programming.

Here it is!

To help get things I'll re-post several goodies soon that I have effectively posted in another string. It would appear that I have organization arriving now, so it might be somewhat later.

A word of wisdom. Being a tinkerer, I went directly past the wizard into tweaking when I initially got these, yet now I attempt the wizard first. I think the thing the vast majority miss is that they move all bends on the double (the default). Invest some energy perusing the portrayals of what each bend is. When you are tweaking, it is very likely try not to be moving all together, when you have an exhaustive comprehension of what maxgain, solace and MOL implies you will improve tuning. What's more, for this situation, you would prefer not to move the entire MOL, simply the higher frequencies.

Awesome for one on one.

In any case, not very fruitful setting up for hearing one individual talk in a group. Eatery sort issue. Heaps of noicse out of sight, can't make out what individual before me is stating.

Any proposals?

Will make more endeavors this prior week tossing on towel and calling AH to set them up for me.

Any assistance is welcome.

ctmsnr - Thanks for your reaction about the low battery cautioning. (I haven't checked this gathering for some time.) I'm happy to see that I am by all account not the only one who has not been getting the 5 beep cautioning. Did the repair settle the issue? Were there whatever other issues, and would they say they were settled?

EnglishDispenser I likewise have heard the single beep once in a while and never realized what it was. It generally occured after a sharp sudden sound, so it bode well it is some sort of criticism alteration, however I ask why they did this?

In VERY peaceful conditions some amplifiers can increase the pick up to VERY abnormal states.

In such a circumstance a slight commotion can trigger a blasted of input.

I (attempt to) settle this by decreasing the pick up for 'Delicate Sounds' if a control is accessible in the fitting programming.

Gale Best of fortunes Joe. Today it is difficult yet I expect in a couple of years straightforward changing programming will be the standard for every portable amplifier. Hello pioneering trails is difficult however it can be fun and help those tagging along a similar way later.

floridajoe I might want to Thank Gayle, GrampaDennis and others for their endeavors to help those of us simply getting into or considering utilizing fitting programming. I have dowloaded HearingPlanet's product and furthermore the Unifit Standalone. I lke the looks of both yet appear to favor the Unifit looks. Yet, I have not ben ready to discover a connection to the interface to associate the guides, and so on. The NOAH Hi-Pro is about $1,000 so that is impossible. It likewise appears that the projects don't accomodate all guides sold by Hearing Planet. I attempted various connections on their site and got the "page not found" on them all. Would someone be able to guide me to discover the equipment interface for the fitting programming?? I'm even inspired by purchasing an utilized one in the event that somebody who might be listening has one available to be purchased.

Much obliged!!

Alicja Just to tell you that I returned AH CICs, on the grounds that Widex Mind were vastly improved for me. Still, was VERY awed by AH client benefit.

Gale At first I missed the 5 beeps some how however now I get them. I get a solitary beep from like a boisterous commotion like a hammering entryway, and so forth and I think it is more typical when the battery gets weaker.

Things are progressing pretty well with my LOF America Hears helps.

ctmsnr Dennis,

It's been for a moment since your post, however I have been attempting LOF helps for two months and have just gotten the 5 beep low battery succession once! I as well, am getting a solitary beep now and then when a battery is going to go however some of the time not. They simply go dead or are dead when I remove them from the jug in the morning.

I returned one guide to AH a week ago and they put in "another circuit" and I will be lifting it up from Fedex tomorrow. Additionally, I will restore the other guide tomorrow for comparative repair. I would like to hear the 5 beep grouping after repairs.

I have had single beeps single beeps happen certainly before a battery is gone (days). I don't know anything about how the 5 beep succession associates to battery control. Yet, by not getting the grouping in the most dire outcome imaginable one may be proceeding to utilize the battery when it is past an ideal power limit

Davidb Just an alert that cutting the ink cartridge to fit a magnet in a pen represents a danger of a defective pen and ink-recolored shirt take. I understand now that the Pilot G-2 05 pen that I changed had been utilized sufficiently long that the ink supply had sufficiently depleted to enable me to securely abbreviate the cartridge. Be that as it may, when I acquired extra pens, I found the cartridges too loaded with ink to securely permit cutting off 7/8 inch. Luckily I found the refill cartridges for Pilot Dr. Hold, Center of Gravity pens are one inch shorter than the G-2 cartridges and work satsifactorily with the 7/8 inch magnet embedded in the top area of the G-2 pen. I now have an arrangement of six practical attractive G-2 pens that I partition amongst home and office, so I generally have a magnet helpful on the off chance that I have to change HA programs.

No, he's not looking at utilizing a magnet to put a guide into telecoil mode. The America Hears SIEs don't have a manual catch on the guide to choose which of up to 4 program recollections you need. You touch the magnet (or memory wand as they call their magnet) to the highest point of your ear close to the guide to switch program modes. With each touch of the wand to the ear, it cycles from mode to mode, and beeps from 1 to 4 times to flag which mode has been chosen.

I utilized a dispensable Pilot G-2 05 clear plastic pen. Basically unscrewed the pen, expelled the ink cartridge, cut 7/8 in off the finish of the cartridge, supplanted the top toward the finish of the cartridge, embedded a magnet in the pen body, at that point embedded the abbreviated cartridge and screwed the pen back together.

The reasonable plastic pen is pleasant on the grounds that the battery is unmistakable, however it's not something others would take note.

Davidb Regarding magnets in pens for use in changing AH SIE programs, or other HA that utilization a magnet wand to choose programs, I bought a pack of eight rectangular magnets (1/4 in square, 7/8 in long) for $2.50 at Home Depot and discovered they fit effortlessly in a ball point pen.

I like to have a normal like that, so I'm not continually pondering "When did I last change the batteries?" I couldn't care less if the batteries would most recent 10 days, I'll change them once every week, when I need to! In any case, I'm sufficiently interested that I likely will run an arrangement of the Renatas until the point that they run out, just to perceive to what extent they will go.

I got 10 days out of my first combine of the Renata batteries. Much better! Presently, I ought to have the capacity to change these on a week after week plan and never keep running down. On the off chance that I overlook and run a day over, no issue!.

Being the modest old Yankee that I am, I thought of another probability. I could run the "better" Renata batteries in my correct guide (the one that appears to utilize more power), and the "consistent" ICellTech batteries in my left guide. This should give me seven days' running each time. I have just about a crate of the ICellTech's cleared out. At the present time, I'm on the second match of Renata's, yet I may change to that arrangement.

KayakerNC Seems like I've seen attractive pens in most HA workplaces. Simply request the attractive battery changers/holders.

That is a wonderful connection.

Davidb Thanks for the information & connect, Dafor. I'll investigate what estimate magnets will carry out the employment. I attempted one little fridge magnet that did not work but rather another little one changed the SIE program great. A pleasant thought.

Davidb Eureka! My most recent methodology for SIE wand-toting is to embed the wand inside a pen. While most ballpoints are a bit excessively thin for this, I got a moving ball pen at a trinket shop today, elegantly finished in a turtle theme, and supplanted the ink cartridge with the wand. Really I abbreviated the cartridge - cutting it with a razor cut so the pen still composes, however this appears somewhat dangerous as it could cost me a shirt if the cartridge spills ink. I'll presumably expel the debased cartridge and append a name with my name, telephone number, & please return note to attempt to keep somebody from hurling it out in the event that I happen to leave the non-working pen some place. Presently I'll have the capacity to smoothly touch a pen to my sanctuary to change the SIE program, at the same time giving off an impression of being occupied with genuine consideration in regards to whatever discussion I've been lost because of foundation clamor or breezy winds.

Possibly AH will acknowledge this and offer a catch on a more up to date show.

I have utilized the wand and the catch on the guide itself with no inconvenience to change programs BUT simply did not see enough distinction to move from #1 after I got acclimated to the guides.

mrschwarz The wand is not the most ideal approach to change programs as I would like to think. In all likelihood, I'll lose it and be stuck in mem 1.

Perhaps AH will acknowledge this and offer a catch on a more current model.

Davidb I as well, similar to Jay, Gale & Grampa, likely won't convey the wand since program 1 appears to be fine in the circumstances I've attempted up until this point. Be that as it may, the SEI doesn't have the catch program change choice, and I'd get a kick out of the chance to locate a helpful approach to take it along to experiment with different projects. I could simply keep it in a pocket, however I think I could without much of a stretch lose it that way. I've discovered that the magnet prevents my watch from more than 1/4 inch away, so simply keeping it in a pocket wouldn't really keep it from meddling with different gadgets. I think about whether the magnet could meddle in any capacity with the portable amplifier PC chip if conveyed in a similar pocket. Presumably not or somebody likely would have seen that. Additionally, I attempted some aluminum thwart protection yet the magnet stops the watch at 1/4 inch even through layers of thwart. At work I had a go at section the wand to my belt on one of those retractible string ID identification holders. That appeared to work OK until the point that I strolled through an entryway and the magnet destroyed onto the metal door jamb uncoiling the line as I went through. I assume I could start wearing an accessory with the wand as a pendant, however that kind of thrashings the possibility of a discretely concealed HA. So for the time being, I'll convey it in a pocket, at that point may choose I don't generally require more than one program and simply leave the wand at home. I would like to stress that so far the HA is extraordinary, opening up discourse enough however not foundation clamor - extremely compelling.

willaim Thanks Gale.

That connection worked.

The product looks simply like the one my Audi utilized.

I probably spent a hour going over that site looking.

GrampaDennis I attempted the wand. It works. Like a few others here, I find that Memory Program 1 serves my requirements and it's more try to change to other memory programs than it's worth. Maybe, in the event that I invested a considerable measure of energy in certain unique circumstances, I would feel contrastingly about it.

I regularly convey a mobile phone and a Palm Pilot. I likewise have a GPS route unit that I play with (Thank you, Santa). I likewise convey a USB memory stick on my keychain. Magnets in nearness are bad for all these electronic toys. My attractive wand remains in the favor case I got from AH, and does not go with me. The few times that I have gone for the other memory programs while all over the place, I have utilized the catch on the guides. The catch is somewhat precarious, however it works.

I couldn't discover the battery for one of the guides for the situation when I got the chance to work, and simply in the wake of taking the tab off another battery did I see the first battery adhered to the finish of the attractive wand.

I found my watch was 25 minutes moderate. I at last made sense of that what obviously happened is that the attractive wand more likely than not halted the watch when I set them alongside each other in the plastic pack as I cycled to work. It appears it might be ideal to keep the wand in a different spot, however I haven't yet chosen where. I assume it may stick attractively on my belt clasp however that may have it's own particular arrangement of inconveniences. Any thoughts?

Welcome to the club and I anticipate that you will proceed will be upbeat. I had been unaided for quite a while in light of the fact that I didn't care for the ITE help that was fitted years back so the initial 2-3 weeks was a bear on occasion for me however that is past.

The wand thing has made some sticky cases for me too. Really I abandon it at home and have discovered remaining on #1 the greater part of the time functions admirably. I do have volume controls (LOF variant of the BTE) so I have my guides set so when simply turned on (setting of 1) I hear OK yet in the event that I require more volume in a very place like the films or church I can simply knock them up a bit. The console can get uproarious if the volume is up a bit.

Again good luck.

jay_man2 Davidb, I have 3 of those wands, and keep one in the kitchen, one in the sanctum, and one in a cupholder in my auto. Other than exchanging through the projects a couple of times, I've still never utilized anything besides program 1, so I don't convey a wand with me for simply the reasons you depict.

I imagined that on the off chance that I at any point did, I'd utilize some aluminum thwart to make a pocket to keep it in, to shield it from influencing different things on or close me. You could even fix the delicate pocket that accompanied the guides and keep it in that to bear.

I went to my neighborhood Audi and she revealed to me I ought to get a Resound spot 20 set.

They cost to much. $4500

I am presently taking a gander at an arrangement of Freedom SIE helps.

William check whether this old connection is as yet dynamic.

willaim I'm new here and have been perusing this string and getting alot of data.

For that I wish to thank all of you!

My significant other has been after me to get a portable amplifier for a long time.

Well I'm going to take to dive soon.

I went to my neighborhood Audi and she disclosed to me I ought to get a Resound speck 20 set.

They cost to much. $4500

I am currently taking a gander at an arrangement of Freedom SIE helps.

Would you be able to disclose to me where to download the demo programming?

That is my last stop before I simply ahead and arrange them.

Much appreciated

Gale Dennis that is intriguing about the weaking battery comes about. I can begin to educate particularly in the left ear regarding 2 days before the battery beeps that I require more volume. I concur changing a day or two early can be superior to anything running out at the wrong time.

I saw AH is currently offering the changing programming free as a winter exceptional. I should connect my again to check whether I would incline toward some other setting.

It regards hear you are doing admirably with yours.

I never have gotten the 5 beep battery cautioning with both of my Freedom LOF helps. In the event that it's a deformity, I don't think of it as' not kidding enough to manage without the guides while I send them back. I do find that the conduct of my correct guide changes a bit when the battery gets low. In light of a sudden or uproarious commotion, I get a solitary beep as the clamor decrease kicks in. At that point, just when the battery gets low, there is by all accounts a delay before the guide comes back to typical. At the point when the battery is truly low, it just stop.

When I initially got the portable amplifiers, I accomplished something like you portrayed to level the battery life. Really, I had transformed one rashly, at that point put the old one back into even up on the opposite side.

I as of late requested a portion of the Swiss-made Renata batteries from localbattery.com. They should be longer enduring than the Korean ICellTech batteries that were sent from AH. My expectation is that I will reliably get seven days out of the Renata's, even on the correct side. On the off chance that I do, I will transform them once per week on Sunday morning. I want to have a normal like that, so I'm not continually pondering "When did I last change the batteries?" I couldn't care less if the batteries would most recent 10 days, I'll change them once every week, when I need to! Be that as it may, I'm sufficiently interested that I likely will run an arrangement of the Renatas until the point when they run out, just to perceive to what extent they will go.

Because of the way that I changed the left guide in the meantime, I haven't yet heard the low battery cautioning on that side.

I don't know whether the distinction is because of a generation change since the manual is composed, or because of a setting that was made at the processing plant. I didn't discover a place in Virtual Office to change the quantity of beeps for the low battery cautioning.

It's not by any means a major ordeal. Be that as it may, I got confounded the main day I heard the single beep going off. I was expecting 5 beeps for low battery. I ran the battery down level, at that point thought "That beep probably been the battery cautioning." When I ran the second battery down, the "single beep" cautioning was affirmed.

What number of beeps do you get when your battery keeps running down?

Each of my batteries kicked the bucket 4 hours separated today.

Alicja Thanks Howie,

To what extent have you had them? I've perused elsewhere that HA equipment is not the best quality and the individual needed to return helps for repair commonly. Additionally, have you utilized the product to change unique settings?

GrampaDennis,

Your recommendation on the most proficient method to utilize AH programming will enable me to play with it. Much appreciated!

Alicja Hello everybody,

Simply enrolled to this gathering and I'm happy I've discovered this string. Today I've sent my audiogram to AH. Right now am trying Widex Mind CIC that is very little of change over my 7 years of age SensoPlus CIC. Did some exploration on AH and chosen to try it out. You've posted an extraordinary data on the product. Will tell you on my experience w/AH. Btw, has any of you or somebody you know acquired CIC from AH?

I found, last night, that I had a touch of wax in part connecting the tube to my correct ear. After I expelled the tube from the guide, and the tip from the tube, I tenderly blew through the tube with my mouth (from the guide end), while "angling" in the ear end of the tube with the dark instrument given in my pack. It took two or three tries before I was fulfilled that I had it clear. This had an extremely detectable effect in the clamor.

I'm somewhat humiliated to concede that I accept in any event some of this wax blockage was in the tube when I had last balanced the guides. Today around evening time, I experienced the changes once more. I think I now have them where I ought to have inspired them to last time. My underlying TV listening test went fine. I'll attempt some music in a bit.

Here's a tip: Check the tubes for wax development before every modification! Additionally, check the tubes once per day. Blowing them out once per week, or at whatever point they require it, sounds like a smart thought, as well.

Gale JKallears this is some of my encounters programming the America Hears helps and a considerable lot of them originated from the early information from Dennis and others.

I recommend you do the Loudness Balance test just regardless of the possibility that you feel your audiogram was not point on when you were tried. I had an indistinguishable issues with testing individual from you it appears.

Work with the Loudness Balancing programming highlight at first since it helped me and is extremely easy to run. Following half a month of modifying the guides I at that point did the majority of the modifications conceivable under the Fine Tune include tab with DISREGARD to the audiogram other than utilizing it as a beginning stage.

Doing this got me over the altering "mound" and I have advanced starting there. After about a month I was not in any case mindful of wearing the guides generally. Music was something I never appreciated on the grounds that I couldn't get the words however that is not true anymore.

Since I had not been remedied for a considerable length of time there was a "genuine" time of getting to be use to hearing sounds and particularly the ones I would not like to listen. Good luck and post as regularly

GrampaDennis,

I played with around 5 various types of batteries and they all appear to last a similar measure of time. The PowerOnes endured as long as the ones I got on ebay from a vender named bidybid. I have CIC's so perhaps they remain hotter in my ears, so I haven't seen any distinction in warm or chilly climate. Howie

GrampaDennis Wow! I've had my AH LOF's for somewhat more than 5 weeks now! I had a few sessions with the Virtual Office programming in the primary couple of weeks, yet left the changes alone from 10/30 until today. As others have noted, I needed the guides to be somewhat more grounded in the wake of getting used to them for this measure of time.

Today around evening time, I experienced the Loudness Balance method utilizing the Advanced tab. Along these lines does not give you as much provoking, and gives you a chance to skip around and test diverse blends without being driven through a straight arrangement of occasions. I think the Advanced screen is the better technique for me now. I found the settings I had in my correct ear were not too all around adjusted. Some portion of this might be expected to the "Wizard" settings I had connected after the Loudness Balance last time. I likewise found that I had the 3 bring down recurrence runs essentially bring down in volume than the higher extents. I sorted the majority of this out and persuaded what appeared to be a superior clamor adjust over the recurrence ranges.

Going into the Wizard, I found that the entryway hammer sound appeared to be unnaturally boisterous. I connected the revision to both guides, utilized the Program Aids catch, tried once more, and connected an extra rectification. I likewise connected a redress for the TV or Radio discourse being "empty or reverberating." Everything else appeared to be OK.

I tested a bit with the commotion and recurrence of the beeps for the notices. I never have heard the low battery cautioning in both of my guides! I have found with PC programming and other innovative gadgetry, a profoundly logical method called "shaking the handle" (change a setting to something else, at that point change it back once more) here and there produces comes about. By changing the settings, I may have goaded the low battery motion into working. I'll keep look for what happens when my present arrangement of batteries gets old.

After the session, I tuned in to the TV for a couple of minutes at the volume my significant other had set. It appeared to be vastly improved. As I write this post, I am tuning in to spilling jazz over my PC. Sounds great! I am certainly satisfied that I picked a portable amplifier framework that gives me a chance to do my own particular changes!

On the drawback, I do expect a couple of more events of input "twitters" in my correct ear, with the guides turned up a bit from where I have had them. I can live with the incidental peep if the setting is to such an extent that I hear better by and large.

Do you parents find that your batteries don't keep going as long in cool climate? I am as yet utilizing out of my first box of the ICellTech batteries transported with the guides.

hhuck See that, AmericaHears fulfilled 2 individuals this time.

jay_man2 Yesterday I got another Apple Macbook Pro, and effectively introduced the present form of Virtual Office on Windows XP Professional running under Parallels 4.0 on the Mac. When I made sense of how to utilize Parallels and Windows in a virtual machine it was quite simple to load and refresh Virtual Office, enlist, and associate my portable amplifiers.

The greatest inquiry I had was the means by which interfacing the programming box would work. When you associate something to a USB port on the Mac with Parallels running, it inquires as to whether you need to interface that gadget to the Mac or the virtual machine. Truly perfect.

Also, my sibling's cheerful as well, since he's currently the glad proprietor of a delicately utilized Compaq tablet that used to simply be utilized to run the AH programming.

Buster, I ran with the CIC's a result of my workplace. I work with formatively handicapped and am included with many practices every day.

Gale Buster I didn't care for the in the ear help I had in light of the fact that it was to hard for me to get in and particularly OUT.

With my America Hears LOF my ears are not "stopped" and they are less demanding for me to deal with. Altering them at MY PC when I need to modify any settings was imperative to me. So was sparing $3200 on a comparative arrangement of Starkey helps and $3400 on a Beltone set.

But on the other hand I'm quite recently inquisitive.

Gale David I was simply on the edge for the SIE so Susan recommended the LOF and I am satisfied with them and it has been 4 weeks.

Normally I don't alter my volume however simply click them one (1) yet in a very place with a delicate speaker speaking I can turn them up. The driver side entryway on the RV can have air clamor so I simply click off the left guide for more solace until the point when I get out.

With a now and again switch I can kill my guides and place them in the conveying pocket as opposed to having the battery entryways open. The SIE show is cool without a doubt however my misfortune was quite recently excessively awesome, making it impossible to push them that hard.

jay_man2 I trust you're as content with the SIE's as I am, Davidb. Anticipating your future posts.

Davidb I talked with an AmericaHears audiologist today who prescribed the SIE over LOF for my listening ability misfortune. She said I won't generally require volume control and furthermore that very few telephones coordinate with a telecoil. My figure is that I'd be happy with either show, yet the additional progression of setting the volume on both sides each time I turn on the HA appears to be trivial on the off chance that I won't be requiring the additional abundancy. In view of her recommendation and additionally supportive remarks by Jay above, I think I'll run with the SIE as a superior fit for my circumstance.

I truly have valued all the data on this site, and I'm certain I'll be inquiring in once the HA arrives and I'm figuring out how to utilize the product to tweak the HA.

jay_man2 I had a volume control on my AH in-the-ear half-shells, and never at any point transformed it. It turned out to be to a greater extent a diversion, verifying the volume dial was in the position I needed it in.

I had a telecoil in my Widex Diva ITC helps, and it was basically pointless, not due to the t-loop, but rather on account of the telephones, which don't put sufficiently out attractive reverberation to make the t-curl advantageous.

I was initially intrigued by the LOF in view of the simple support of the empty tube and longer battery life, despite the fact that my misfortune profile fit for the SIE. Judy at AH thought I was a solid match for the SIE, and I lifted them up on October 29. Up until now, so great. I think the little size and solace behind the ear more than compensates for the tiny bit of additional upkeep to keep the wax monitors gotten out, and the 5 day battery life hasn't been a major ordeal. I've generally possessed the capacity to carefully supplant batteries, and haven't had a "basic disappointment" in very nearly 7 years of wearing guides.

Davidb In late December, I plan to arrange a LOF from AmericaHears.com, however regardless I think about whether their SIE model may be a superior decision. I've observed this string to be exceptionally useful and would welcome any extra counsel/remarks. My purposes behind favoring the LOF incorporate simplicity of cleaning the empty tube and less probability of stopping up/harming the speaker, volume control (the connection with respect to volume recommended that for my high recurrence misfortune vol control may not be fundamental, but rather despite everything I think I'd like the adaptability to help the vol if experiencing issues hearing in a few circumstances), longer battery life (so badly designed to need to evacuate a guide and change a battery amid a meeting), and phone curl (I'm not sure how the loop functions but rather think it might be a worthwile highlight). The SIE may have clearer sound - conceivable reverberation in LOF tube however I haven't heard any client gripe of such solid bending. The littler size of the SIE additionally might be an or more, however I likewise am not mindful of any disappointment with estimate among LOF wearers.

I saw an inquiry concerning the requirement for a guarantee on another string however haven't possessed the capacity to find that remark once more. It surely is conceivable to lose or harm a HA. I've absentmindedly begun to shower and furthermore once hopped in a pool overlooking I was wearing my channel helps (luckily they generally survived the splashing). I lost one HA around ten years back (secured by a misfortune guarantee) and lost a case containing two HA this year (no guarantee). The 3-year $199 AmericaHears assurance arrange covers one claim for misfortune or harm of one HA (not the tubes, and so on.) with $200 deductible. It's decent to have a guarantee in case of misfortune or harm and $199 appears to be sensible, yet finished the longterm I question on the off chance that I'd spare cash with one, even given my dreary reputation.

I see that our companions here have taken great care of you. I have several different things going on the present moment, thus have not been as dynamic on this gathering for as far back as few days.

I may not yet have conceded this to the people on the board, yet I too am a specialist (Civil). I am likewise very PC educated, having spent the significant piece of my vocation working with them (to a great extent CADD programming backing, testing and advancement). I get a kick out of the chance to consider myself very logical. Indeed, even with each one of those impediment, I discover the AH Virtual Office programming very simple to utilize.

Really, I discover the blend of having the product and programming connect available to me AND a large portion of the cost of the majority of the opposition to be a win-win circumstance. Notwithstanding that, you get a 60 day time for testing, amid which you can get a full discount on the off chance that you choose to restore the guides.

With the greater part of that stated, I have nothing against whatever other brand of listening devices. For a few people, the in-person consideration of a decent audiologist is certainly justified regardless of the additional cost.

I note from one of your later posts that you have begun the procedure with America Hears. Good fortunes in your move to amplifiers. Tell us how you make out.

jay_man2 I'm wearing AH SIE's presently, and have worn in the ear half-shells before. I concur with the remark on the sound quality. I favor this stage with ADRO over the Widex Diva ITC's and GN ReSound Pulse open fit BTE's I've worn previously.

What's more, with the AH helps, I didn't need to roll out any improvements out of the container. With the half-shells I requested a music program subsequent to getting them, and had a refreshed audiogram later on. Both circumstances a telephone call to the 800 number, and inside several hours I was downloading the new settings from AH and re-programming the guides.

On the off chance that your the tinkering sort and need to self program, AH might be your exclusive course.

In the event that you play around with the product before the guides arrive you'll at any rate get the vibe for it. You may not have to modify them out of the container yet in the event that you do and mess it up, you simply reload the setting that accompanied them and begin once again.

NVBob Sure could utilize some solid counsel from those without the personal stake in offering me their HAs.

I have additionally attempted the tulip vaults, and the two littlest open arches; a few days prior I attempted the littlest arches and the tulip arches, and changed projects to check the uproar of the beeps. I found that, not surprisingly, the beeps sound somewhat louder with the tulip arches.

Since I'm utilized to the tulip vaults from my past open fit guides, and don't discover them blocking, I'll stay with them. Tulip vaults are suggested for my low recurrence misfortune, so it's all great.

By and large, I have a tendency to concur with opposing the update unless there is something settled or included that I think would be advantageous.

It would be decent in the event that they (AH) sent their customers an email enlightening them regarding refreshes and what they incorporate and afterward we could choose in the event that we needed to refresh or not.

Refresh: Just got an email from Susan, one of AH's audi's and she says that 2.07 is the most recent form and she doesn't know why Virtual Office is instructing me to refresh once more?

Gale 2.05 is the thing that my CD peruses.

hhuck Quick question. What adaptation of the product is everybody utilizing. I have variant 2.07 and as a propensity I generally snap to refresh the product. When I do it says there is a refresh, I download it and it won't introduce anything. Possibly only a glitch. I generally had issues running the product on Vista so made my portable workstation a double boot with XP.

BTW this is an awesome string and THANKS GrampaDennis for every one of your endeavors.

renderit I utilize open fits and am new to this, however I wear glasses also. It has been no issue. Here is a gotcha however. With the "customary" combine I have that I wear at home (glass focal points, great firm sanctuaries) I can take them off and put them on freely utilizing the sanctuary to push down toward the rear of the HA's. The combine I wear "out" are the hyper costly rimless sort with thin titanium outlines. I need to physically stick the over-ear bit of the sanctuary as they generally need to slide around the outside of the guide. Somewhat of a torment, however not anything to horrible. With those glasses on I think the HA's are more "imperceptible" than with the others as the unit fits better with the more slender sanctuaries.

cypresstx Gale and jay man2 a debt of gratitude is in order for hitting me up so soon. I welcome it.

It has not been for my situation. I hear them rub the guides when I go on and off. They are light and little so they simply move over a bit. The tubes are off the beaten path.

In the event that you don't hear something Monday I would call them after lunch. I discovered they concentrate on their present business before new prospects. They didn't call me as fast as I needed in the wake of faxing over the audiogram so I called yet they have been there for me in an auspicious way since. My email has been caught in their SPAM channel framework a period or two.

The most critical thing is to ear well and the following thing is an incentive in see. Good luck and up date us on your experience.

jay_man2 I wear the SIEs and wear glasses for driving and perusing - no issue. My GN ReSound Pulse helps that I wore before the SIEs were comparative in size to the LOFs - again no issue.

You simply need to utilize the typical care in putting on and removing the glasses to limit knocking the guides at those circumstances. Something else, no issues, with assortment of edge styles and sanctuary shapes.

So to what extent we going to give this person a chance to stick around.

Gale I don't think the volume control setting will make it utilize more power on the off chance that you are doing it with the product. I have mine set so they simply tap on and are right at the setting of 1.

Dennis doing it your way ought not utilize more power and is the "right" route in that the Virtual Office programming sets them at 2.5 when you are in test mode. Because of joint inflammation I like them set on 1 since it is hard for me to achieve the correct guide with it in my ear and simply heading off to the stop of the off position is quite recently less demanding for me.

It appears to expel the batteries physically could prompt breakage. Opening the entryway gives them a chance to dry out in my brain.

It would appear that you are doing two things another way than I have been. Either, or both, could be figures your more drawn out keeps running on batteries. I have my guides balanced with the goal that I run them in the vicinity of 2.5 and 3 on the volume scale. (I shot for mid-scale, 2.5, in doing my volume setup, yet find that 3 works somewhat better for TV, and so forth ) I have been somewhat lethargic and have not taken the batteries out when I put the guides in the drying jug around evening time. I have been opening the entryways, yet the batteries have been running in the container with the guides.

Some place, in a gathering talk on battery life, I think I read that somebody thought it shouldn't have a major effect to release the batteries in the drying container. In any case, that guidance might not be right.

At www.localbattery.com (the promotion at the highest point of this present gathering's pages), I think the cost for the brand of batteries that AH provided was around 32 pennies in a 60 pack. My memory may not be right - It's been a while since I looked. At that value, the shorter life may not be that tremendous an arrangement. Nonetheless, I think I'll have a go at taking the following set out during the evening, to perceive what the distinction is.

GrampaDennis I was going to intentionally rundown my batteries this previous end of the week, to check whether I could hear the notice beeps. Be that as it may, before we cleared out on Sunday morning for a two day visit with our child, and his family, in New Hampshire, I chose to put in new batteries so I wouldn't need to trouble with them on the trek.

Perhaps next time, I'll get them keep running down the distance before I change them. Maybe it's my creative energy, yet I think my correct guide gets somewhat weaker when the battery is low.

Gale After presenting on let renderit know it took me two or three weeks with my America Hears BTE LOF portable hearing assistants I understood the information had a place in this tread Dennis set up to help America Hears clients.

Today is day 13 with my AH BTE LOF helps. Sunday night I reinvented some other time lastly cutting the sounds I would prefer not to hear yet my comprehension is making strides.

Since the HUGE distinction between my ears it has made programming them harder to "listen" the same in every ear. The pleasant part is I don't need to raise the volume yet simply tap the on (which is a setting of 1 on the dial) to hear well, my voice now sounds ordinary, swimming up a paper pack sounds like it ought to as opposed to pulverizing a metal can, the A/C blower sounds typical, and so on.

I can hear remove discussions plainly yet not have any desire to hurl my guides a long time before the finish of the day. While I to think my altering them so well is the key reason I expect the cerebrum has done a great deal to get this going.

This last time I simply gave careful consideration to the audiogram and customized every recurrence by seem like with a realistic equalizer (nine sliders for my situation) and that is functioning admirably now a couple of days after the fact.

I am beginning to think audiograms can be extremely deceptive in light of the fact that they are subjective tests that at that point turn into the gospel for the audiologist when programming. The corner I was tried in had a HUGE 60 Hz buzz because of the lighting in it being brilliant globules or that is my figure.

Entertaining thing. Since twelve my correct hearing appeared to be poor and as I was writing this I understood my correct battery had kicked the bucket. I heard some unexplained beeps however just idea it was a PC UPS.

So far I have not overlooked and gone out without my guides as I do with my phone here and there. They are beginning to appear as though they are a piece of me since I hear and see so much better. What ever the brand it is by all accounts a stuggle to adjust yet I am certain a similar thing occurs with dentures, and so on. I now there is NO backpedaling to being unaided for me

This is intriguing. I am very sure that I without a doubt ran the battery level one time on my correct guide. I could never again make it criticism by measuring my hand to it. In the wake of supplanting the battery, measuring my hand would prompt criticism as some time recently. Had been hearing the "single beep now and again" a few times that day, yet took the guide out (with the battery entryway opened) for quite a while amid the day as I was chipping away at a heap of wood with a cutting tool. I never heard the 5 beeps. It may be conceivable that the battery went down through the voltage level where the beeps ought to have happened while I had the guide out of my ear.

The second time, I accepted (maybe wrongly) that the battery was level since I was hearing that solitary beep. Without going into the full clarification of why, I'll include that this time I was on a battery that had been halfway utilized some time recently. The battery in the left guide, while not yet dead or kicking the bucket, had been in for near seven days. Now, I chose to put crisp new batteries in both guides. That was this past Sunday.

I don't know whether the distinction is because of a creation change since the manual is composed, or because of a setting that was made at the production line. I didn't discover a place in Virtual Office to change the quantity of beeps for the low battery cautioning.

It's not by any stretch of the imagination a major ordeal. Notwithstanding, I got befuddled the main day I heard the single beep going off. I was expecting 5 beeps for low battery. I ran the battery down level, at that point thought "That beep more likely than not been the battery cautioning." When I ran the second battery down, the "single beep" cautioning was affirmed.

Gale Today was the fourth day (third day to wear them as I cut throughout the day yesterday) with my new America Hears FreedomAD LOF listening devices. At chapel today I ended up stressing the hear now and again so this evening I put the Loudness Balance shipping esteems back in and it was fine today and a short time later we when to Los Portales to eat and I was fine. I can hear the infants well at this point.

I might want to include an extra program for t-loop as it were.

I ensured they associated up to the product and my PC OK, yet did not make any changes. The main change on the HA's I made was to turn up the volumn on the correct one to offset the two together.

fragmentum GrampaDennis,

Much obliged to you for making this string and your posts. I got my FreedomAD LOF HA's today however presently can't seem to open the case! I can hardly wait to give them a shot. I have had the trial form of the product for a couple of months and just as of late refreshed it from AH's servers.

This is the second match of HA's I have had. The main trial set was from Lloyds Hearing Aids http://www.lloydhearingaid.com/

I attempted the modest Analog iHear 1-Channel Stock (non-custom) Instrument

For Mild to Moderately Severe Hearing Losses. I didn't care for them by any means, and they were NOT what was initially prescribed to me when I had my listening ability tried, so I was not going the correct way in the first place! Presently I trust I AM going the correct way.

I will post with my involvement with these here also.

Fragmentum

(Later that same day...) I at last got an opportunity to put my HA's on (had them dispatched to my work address...) and I am inspired with what they are enabling me to listen. I work in a transportation/accepting territory alone, yet arranged amongst shop and front client counter zone. I am getting a great deal of sounds from benefit that I didn't hear some time recently, and a portion of the louder sounds are, obviously, significantly more so now, yet not as uncommfortable as with the first 1 channel simple units I attempted at first from Lloyds Hearing Aids. I have been utilizing channel 1 generally yet will attempt the other three channels later on. In this way, my first response is 'exceptionally great', however I know some tweaking will be required for my particular hearing needs and sound-related waterway shape.

In the event that your guides, as our America Hears models do, enable you to get the volumes set up effectively in any case, why might a misfortune in the "volume frequencies" require a volume control?

I would concur that a remote would be a helpful technique for changing the volume. In any case, I don't forsee the requirement for visit volume changes - for my situation, with my portable amplifiers. Perhaps there are people who require it, or if nothing else think they do.

I utilize mine occasionally in the event that I need to help the volume up a bit, or tone it down a bit. One circumstance is the point at which my better half and I are sitting in front of the TV. I'm attempting to locate the level at which I am happy with tuning in, and the volume is set where she enjoys it. On our TV's scale, she enjoys 8 or 9. Before listening devices, I preferred it at 12 to 16. After Monday's modifying session (where I got the majority of my issues settled), regardless I discovered I needed to turn the guides up a bit (3+) to hear and in addition I enjoyed at the TV's 8 or 9 setting.

Today, I did another session with Virtual Office. I helped the left 2 ticks and the general volume of both sides 1 click. Taking a gander at the Fitting Reports from the last two sessions, it creates the impression that these volume changes are straight, and 1 "click" = 1 db. I have been tuning in to jazz over my PC speakers toward the beginning of today while paying bills, and so on. I likewise attempted the TV quickly. I think I am presently at the point where mid-scale (in the vicinity of 2 and 3) on the physical volume controls is the place I need to be for the TV and music. Coincidentally, I have a decent match of M-Audio speakers on my PC. Most PC speakers are poop. Great speakers will make the Virtual Office alterations go smoother.

In my testing, I find that I need my guides to be set at a volume that is spot on the edge of being discernible to my left side (better) ear. This is the place I hear the rock crunch marginally more than "ordinary" when I stroll on it, where I hear paper stirring, or other low volume sounds, somewhat more than "typical," and so on. When I had the guides (particularly the left one) set lower, I continued thinking about whether it was truly doing anything. In the interim, the level I have focused in on is insufficient for the clattery sounds to be troublesome.

I'll be leaving shortly to go do a few errands. I'll discover how this present volume level functions for driving, and tuning in to the radio.

I speculate that, after I overcome this experimentation organize, I'll most likely leave the physical volume controls set at mid-scale, and occasionally, if at any time, touch them.

Miss Gale,

Reason me for ringing in on your inquiry.

Here is a fascinating short article on volume control needs. http://www.hear-tech.net/remotecontrol.html

GrampaDennis KayakerNC -

I'm satisfied to hear that your change session worked out so well.

For my situation, regardless i'm utilizing the physical volume control to try different things with tweaking the guides up or down a bit, without backpedaling to Virtual Office. Nonetheless, I'm going to the point where I like them and am probably not going to try and be doing that more. At this moment, I have the little wheels set on 3. Whenever I'm in Virtual Office, I may help the left up a single tick and the general volume up a single tick. That ought to get me where my favored level will be focused in the vicinity of 2 and 3 on the wheel, which is halfway of its travel.

I haven't discovered much use for loud circumstance in Memory 2 either. I may attempt it in the Red Robin Restaurant at some point. I like their sustenance, yet that place is disgustingly uproarious (even without my portable amplifiers). I heard some place that the chain really plans their eateries to be that way!

You have to go for the agreeable level here!

Much appreciated GrampaDennis,

My first arrangement of batteries are presently history, and I rearranged my solace/volume levels to more agreeable level as you recommended. Much better.

For my situation, the volume control on the guides don't appear to be required (your mileage may change) as the solace levels continue everything in line.

I have stayed generally in program one, as should be obvious much contrast in the vicinity of one and two (loud conditions). Clearly it is an unpretentious change, dissimilar to the music program.

I am getting a charge out of the experience, and now, I think my LOF's are managers.

I wound up talking with Judy yesterday and requested an arrangement of SIE's. When I talked with her today at 3:30 pm eastern, their Internet get to was down. She revealed to me mine would likely ship today in the event that they'd gotten Internet access back (to do the Fedex names, and so on.) by 5 pm today, however surely they'd deliver tomorrow.

GrampaDennis Here are several notes that I recollected after my last post:

While re-trying the Loudness Balance for my correct ear, the volume change on one of the tones appeared to be "trapped" on an abnormal state. The down bolt would not transform it. I at that point tapped the Restore Defaults and Apply catch. This cleared the issue, and I could rerun the technique for the correct guide. I have no clue why this happened, yet the answer for it was simple.

When I chatted with Susan at AH, I specified that I was experiencing difficulty getting a remark to "stick" in the Note field of the Files list. She said that there is a glitch in the product. The work-around is to tap the mouse elsewhere on that screen subsequent to entering the remark. That strengths the product to spare the remark. I had a go at tapping on another document, of course on the record that I remarked. After I completed, and left the program, I revived it. Beyond any doubt enough, my remark was till there! Because of the way that I utilize the Program Instruments catch on each screen before I abandon it, I produce a considerable measure of records. It's decent to have the capacity to remark the "great" one from the session (despite the fact that it ought to be the last one in the arrangement at that date and surmised time).

Susan additionally said I didn't need to hit the Program Instruments catch before leaving each segment. I'll likely keep on doing so. In my times of PC utilize, I have built up a propensity for sparing my record each time I accomplish something great or fruitful. As a long-lasting CADD bolster administrator for Maine DOT, I've seen a great deal of people lose a half day of work, or more, since they couldn't be tried to spare. At the point when the power went off, or the PC bolted up for reasons unknown, they were unfortunately stuck between a rock and a hard place!

renderit Great review. Keep them coming. Presently I am envious I went poorly course. Today I start the dissatisfaction.

GrampaDennis I could have likewise titled this post "More Lessons Learned." Hopefully, my experience will make it less demanding for others to get great outcomes with America Hears ADRO helps.

I had been encountering a few issues with my correct HA (weaker ear). The sound of TV, and so on was somewhat finished regulated (marginally distorted or reverberate impact). The guide "peeped" or "tweeted" off and on again, once in a while activated by clamors, and some of the time for no obvious reason. While driving, the street clamor or potentially twist commotion in my correct guide appeared to be significantly louder than I thought it should. Being a first-time HA client, I was not exactly beyond any doubt what was "ordinary" and what's in store. I knew my Hearing was much more regrettable on the privilege. I thought about the amount of my concern was because of that, not the HA (or its settings). I had made a couple of notes, and was wanting to call America Hears about it. Prior today, I read a post from JCHunter, in another string on this discussion, that contained a connection to preparing materials from Dynamic Hearing, the Australian organization that gives the ADRO innovation utilized by AH. I very prescribe an audit of the downloadable PowerPoint introduction and recordings, which can be found at the accompanying link:http://www.dynamichearing.com.au/pro...materials.html

When I called Susan, my audiologist at America Hears, I had a quite smart thought what was happening. We talked about the issues and she affirmed my doubts. The trilling and tweeting was input beginning, at that point being cut off by the FBC (FeedBack Control include). This input, and the bending was caused by the way that I had coincidentally set the levels too high through the Loudness Balance strategy (More on this underneath). Susan suggested that I utilize the Traffic Sound inquiry in the Adjustment Wizard to trim my street commotion issue after I had modified the Loudness Balance. Coincidentally, she was extremely useful and wonderful on the telephone. Try not to waver to call for help, in the event that you even speculate you may require it.

When you begin the Loudness Balance strategy, you are incited - "With the Blue or Red bolt Up or Down catch alter the level until the point that it is at a level that is agreeable to you, where you could tune in to the flag for quite a while without supposing it too noisy or too delicate." The first occasion when you do this sets a reference volume level, at 1.5K, that you at that point use for correlation with set tones at different frequencies to a similar din. This first tumult level is especially imperative. I had some way or another misconstrued and set it to a level that I could endure, not a level that was agreeable. You have to go for the agreeable level here!

The following piece of the Loudness Balance strategy is likewise somewhat dubious. It took me a couple of tries before I truly got the hang of setting tones of various frequencies to a similar tumult level. Perhaps regardless i'm not getting it consummate, but rather my fourth attempt is MUCH better than anyone might have expected. Practice helps here! Likewise, take a gander at the diagrams while doing this. There is a line speaking to values anticipated from your audiogram. On the off chance that your "deliberate" qualities are straying by a vast sum from the anticipated esteems, that is a sign that you may be treating it terribly.

I will most likely compose more about the Adjustment Wizard in a later post, however here's a tip. You are given an inquiry concerning a specific sort of sound and made a request to show whether it is Too Loud, Loud however OK, Comfortable, Comfortable yet somewhat delicate, or Too Soft. On the off chance that there's something troubling you by any means, answer Too Loud (or Too Soft) and click Apply Left and Apply Right. The midway answer gets you no amendment.

After the present session (early this evening), my correct guide has not tweeted at me even once! Likewise, the sound from the TV, music, and discourse is clearer. I drove my pickup on around a 10 mile round trek, and the street clamor has returned to a sensible level. I can tune in to the radio at a generally low volume and still hear it plainly while driving. When I turn the radio up to a direct volume, I can truly appreciate the music! I am a considerably more joyful camper at this point!

My the FreedomAD LOF helps certainly did not come to me "prepared to use" out of the container. It might be on account of my correct ear is somewhat harder than some to change for. Likewise, in taking in the changing procedure, I made a few sections of the circumstance more regrettable for myself at first. Presently, I trust I am destined for success. In the event that you are having issues, don't be reluctant to utilize the product (your inital setup can be effectively reestablished), and don't dither to talk about the circumstance with the decent people at America Hears.

GrampaDennis This forenoon, I went through the entire change prepare again in the Virtual Office programming. I had two or three particular things I needed to settle, however I likewise thought another attempt at the Loudness Balance method may be beneficial.

This time, I discovered that you should hit Program Instruments toward the culmination of each Control Tab segment. I think I endeavored to roll out improvements that didn't get "spared" in my prior session.

My goof was in setting the general volume level of the left guide. That is my better ear, and I set it so low that I was truly hearing with my ear alone, not with the guide.

I was in a rush in the wake of completing this session since I had guaranteed my significant other I would gather the boxed bedside stands she had quite recently purchased for the visitor room. In doing that task, i was working alone in a calm room. I didn't see that my left guide wasn't doing anything until some other time in the day. I changed the battery initially, yet that didn't offer assistance. I reasoned that I should have it set up too low, yet was excessively bustling tending my 5 year old grandson to have another session.

After dinner, while the child was viewing a motion picture, I snared and settled the volume of the left guide. It was no major ordeal.

This little experience indicates out that you have work precisely and be quiet. Attempt to arrange things to such an extent that you have a decent open door for testing and affirmation after a session, ideally with time to backpedal in if fundamental. Try not to alter your guides instantly before going off to accomplish something that will have you tied up for some time.

Another remark on changing volume levels. The product and correspondence needs a little time between when you hit the up or down bolt and when you hear the distinction. In my first session, I "advanced beyond the product" a bit, and had it "bolted up" for a couple of moments. On the off chance that you roll out the improvement gradually, watch what's occurring on the screen, and tune in to what the sound is doing, you will soon get the mood that works best. You can't simply more than once tap on the up or down bolts like a jackhammer.

GrampaDennis I different strings and discussions, I've seen remarks that the Virtual Office programming did not introduce as well as work accurately in Windows Vista.

I found that the CD dispatched with my guides was Version 02.05, a later form than I had downloaded. One intriguing thing I found in the readme.txt document is that they say the program is currently good with Windows Vista. Despite everything I utilize XP on both of my PC's, so I can't vouch for how it functions with Vista.
