Rexton Quintra 2c, Costco's newest??

2013-09-12 15:45:00 in Digital Hearing Aids by  MinnBobber
Hi,

anybody have any data with respect to the new Rexton Quintra 2c at Costco? Costco "aide" (not the primary fitter) said

it just arrived in seven days back. Marginally greater body than Rexton Charismo 2c. Agent catches on help.

Promo with free pocket remote control until January.

I went into see the new Kirkland Signature 5.0 Helper thought the Rextons (Charismo and Quintra) and

the Bernafon Acrivas would be better execution.

I do 15-20 hours of open air dons seven days (pickleball, biking) and need music lucidity. So dampness resistance,

wind commotion concealment , normal sound are most critical to me. Home discussions, television watching, motion picture

theater utilize are enormous components.

Fitting appt one week from now

almahix Anybody have any encounters to share about the rexton smaller than normal blu rcu? I am having a horrible time hearing on the telephone and this Bluetooth gadget sets with the quintra and a PDA. They offer for about $400. I'm examining getting one yet thought I would look for remarks. Thx.

almahix Got my new quintras a few hours back. I like hearing every one of the things I couldn't care for the microwave beep, the feline murmuring, and the dishwasher running. Television sounds somewhat tinny yet I might have the capacity to determine that. Just grievance is they are somewhat irritated in my ear. Ideally I will get accustomed to it. My early introduction is exceptionally positive.

Somewhere in the range of 5 weeks after the fact, I can state that I am as yet content with these rextons. The main imagine that isn't incredible is utilizing the phone. I do charitable effort on the telephone, and my old headsets don't sound great. I can't comprehend what individuals say. I have to locate a workable arrangement. Any thoughts?

I think the manual says they take either 4 or 6 hrs to charge. The individual at Costco said they will most recent 1 year before I need to supplant them. I have not come up short on juice on them, even on long wearing days. I may need to have the tubing broadened in light of the fact that when I look in the mirror I now and again observe the highest point of the portable amplifier topping over my ear, I expect the audiologist can give me another length tubing if necessary.

Primary concern, they look like guardians. - Updated -

What was the value distinction between the Quintras the Phonaks and the Alta Pros?

Are Quintras just Siemens rebranded? I am unconscious of any other individual with an echarger?

In any case, 3 and half weeks to be fitted is not that long. From my past involvement with the audiologist in the commercial center a month to a month and a half is about typical. However, that was for custom assembled helps and not BTE helps.

A debt of gratitude is in order for clarifying that. I figure I rushed to condemn. I'll be quiet!

almahix Had costco exam yesterday. Terrible low and hey freq and trouble comprehend discourse, particularly ladies. Wore Quintra around store and enjoyed them. The costco HA staff were all charming, careful, and learned. The time for testing, cost and guarantee were satisfactory. I conversed with companion who wears phonaks and she thought my portrayal of the quintra was fascinating and she addressed a few inquiries. Backpedaled and requested them today with remote and charger. Just complant is that it took 2 months to be seen, and now, I should hold up 3 1/2 weeks to be fitted. That is recently off-base! Anyway, the remarks here are amazingly useful. I will report back in the wake of fitting and wearing.

fezo I'm new to listening devices and begun with Oticon Altas which I gave an entire 75 day tryout. Wouldn't proceed onward cost and I wasn't excited with the guides or the audiologist. Handed them over and finished upon the Quintras at Costco. Couldn't be more joyful. A greatly improved guide, are toe, more coherent controls and a large portion of the cost. What's not to like?

bumbrlik I have not experienced. You might need to backpedal to Costco and have them refit the Quintras.

RandomParadox Just lifted mine up today. There are a few sounds that has this odd multiplying impact (reverb or reverberate?) like my own particular voice, or a high pitch commotion.

I demoed the ks5s quickly and it didn't have this issue.

any other individual has this issue?

llagerva My rechargeable 312 batteries just last around 14 hours so when for prime time TV they are coming up short on control. I think about whether I should simply utilize the normal batteries as they are entirely cheap at Costco.

mirkee I have dicided to keep mine. I think they are confortable and work genuine well for me. Mine utilization the 312 size batteries and they are bounty little for me. Batteries last me over seven days, since I change them out Sunday nites whether they require it or not. Modest. I feel this is the correct size for me. Littler HAs feel like they may tumble off. I believe I could improve in discourse acknowledgment however I have not backpedaled for my second change. I have to make a rundown of any weaknesses, which are not very many. I'm upbeat. Would purchase once more. I have had them for around 5 months.

bumbrlik I have been utilizing Quintra 2c for 70 days now. I like them a considerable measure, they are on a par with Siemens Micon Pure 7 and cost about half. In any case, given that I am still inside the 90 days Costco time for testing, I am wanting to demo the Phonak Brio in the following couple of weeks.

Momjko Can you give a report on your Quintra HA? My mother is preparing to get substitution helps and I'm interested about those.

Flys2ty I have worn the Quintras for 2 weeks thus far have not discovered any purpose behind alterations, I can hear discussions in boisterous conditions and discourse is heard well from individuals talking behind me. The three projects are auto, commotion, and TV. I discover the auto program functions admirably as a rule. I will utilize TV for a couple of shows however is by and large not required. The auto p;program must work in noisy spots since I don't see any distinction when changing to that program. I initially would purchase the KS5 however a few remarks posted said the sound wasn't to their preferring. I figured the extra cost for first class helps was justified, despite all the trouble and would not like to roll out an improvement.

digitalohmygod My audiogram is about this:

250 500 1K 2K 4K 8K

50 60 55 65 70

Left and right ears have about a similar misfortune

I think my ear waterway is little.

It relies on upon your listening ability misfortune and the span of your ear waterways. Would you be able to post your audiogram esteems? Maybe the twofold vaults weren't a solid match and you had loads of spillage. You can get a more tightly seal with custom earmolds.

I'm in the west Puget sound zone over the water from Seattle.

I happened to fly into the Costco in Santa Clarita (a little NE of Burbank) a month or so prior and they really have an out and out audiologist (AuD) on staff. This was directly after I had my first fitting and I required a change yet she didn't have whenever accessible. In case you're close there you may give her a shot.

Much obliged once more.

They spare to a server so in the event that you are in a similar range they ought to have the capacity to get to it. In any case, they can get the present setup from your listening devices at any rate.

Contingent upon the brand (not certain who has what) there is a vault called a tulip arch. It has two folds that cover somewhat. It is somewhat greater than a standard arch and complies with the extent of your trench. I had that and cherished it. It has better input control however is not impeding, and they are extremely agreeable. I couldn't tell I was wearing anything.

I have heard the point of confinement for open fit was around 25 to 40 misfortune at 500 Hz, and it relies on upon how much enhancement you require in the high tones. I utilized the tulips with my listening ability test comes about underneath. My listening ability is a little more awful now so I've gone to a custom shape. It is agreeable additionally (yet the tulips are better) and the form has a select-a-vent thing where it is vented with a vast gap and they give you embeds that fit in the huge gap and have distinctive size gaps. I attempted the distinctive supplements until the point that I found the biggest one that would not give me an excess of criticism.

The twofold vaults are accessible in two sizes: 8/10 and 10/12mm. On the off chance that these sizes don't fit, at that point you need to get custom molds with fitting vents. Also, ensure the link length is right; it ought to be flush against your ear when the recipient is embedded.

BakaNeko Well I've had my Quintra helps for around a month and a half at this point. I presently can't seem to get them dialed in well. Each time I go in the master appears to bobble with the product. For reasons unknown she can't roll out little improvements without totally resetting the guides, and she perpetually can't get things set the way they were some time recently. Each time I go in it resembles I'm beginning once again from the very first moment. When she even figured out how to kill the commotion decrease include.

My latest tweaking has brought about exceptionally tinny sounds and continuous input in my left ear. On two separate events she has really needed to call her help office to answer inquiries regarding highlights I saw in the product that she didn't think about. What's more, she is the SENIOR Specialist at this area. The others have just been grinding away a brief timeframe and seem to have been prepared by her (one was preparing with her when she did my underlying fitting.)

Get it's an ideal opportunity to go to another Costco. Do different stores approach my records or do I need to ask for they be exchanged? I'll loathe surrendering the comfort (it's just 5 minutes to my nearest store however around 45 to the closest other store) yet now I've essentially lost trust in the nearby store.BakaNeko 500

bumbrlik Just to give an account of my Rexton Quintra 2c encounter – I have been trying awesome HAs throughout the most recent 6 months - Widex Dream 440, Siemens Micon Pure 7, Phonak Audeo Q90. I was disinterested with the Widex, the other two were respectable – superior to anything what I have now (Phonak Audeo Smart IX) yet not certain if the overhaul is worth $5,000. I too believe that the Phonak programming has hard time to choose which program to pick.

In the wake of perusing many posts on this discussion, I chose to attempt Costco’s Rexton Quintra 2c, lifted them up a week ago. 90 days merchandise exchange, whats not to like. I need to state that so far they appear to be identical to the Siemens and the Phonak, worse but rather not more awful either, and they cost half of the cost of the other three. Despite everything I have to push test them in uproarious conditions however in the event that I needed to pick today, I would run with the Quintra. I am additionally going to test Phonak Naida + Roger pen (that may help in eateries), will provide details regarding them in up to 14 days.

You portray the issue that numerous on this board had with phonak helps. I really abandoned the audeo keen guide (pre-flavor help) for this correct reason. I really abandoned a savia help a while back as well, which could have been soundflow related. Stereozoom achieved a considerable measure of new clients lastly an audi on the board verified that the soundflow issue was really that those programming the guides were not running the criticism supervisor program. I am as yet not certain on the off chance that it must be pursued earlier or programming the guide however I think individuals demonstrated that it's the primary thing that must be run every last time the guide is customized. imo to take no chances it should pursue earlier and programming the guide. All it is an objective symbol on the default programming screen that should be tapped on. I had so much inconvenience persuading new clients to advise their audi. So later on when I choose to experiment with another phonak I will make sure to request that my audi run the input director prior and then afterward programming. Not 100% beyond any doubt if this will work but rather I remember trialing the audeo shrewd and there were times when that guide performed enchantment that no different guides could do.

Digitalohmygod, putting a number on that sort of examination is simply subjective and would shift from individual to individual. That being stated, and just looking at the Quintra and Alta (not an outright scale), I would state that the Quintra is a 6 and the Alta Pro a 8. The primary contrast, and it's a major one, is discourse in clamor. The Alta Pro is greatly improved at concentrating on singular speakers in an auto or in a loud bar or gathering.

Mind you I like the Quintra's open, roomy sound. The Alta Pro appears somewhat limited in examination. This is evident when utilizing the Alta Pro's music program which is great and sounds considerably wealthier than the discourse in commotion program. Obviously this is inescapable due to the pressure required to separate discourse frequencies from the foundation clamor.

Will attempt the Widex Dream 440's this coming week and also the Hansaton Antaro (which is a more affordable variant of the Siemen's Pure Micon 7i. I'll refresh in my other string. Such a large number of listening devices, so little time... 8-)

oticon and widex appears to share some fm adornments. this reveals to me that they may share a mess more than that. imo in the event that you need to have a more applicable examination with the oticon helps, at that point contrast it and a phonak. in the event that discourse in clamor is your fundamental issue, at that point you should investigate phonak's gaming changing binaural stereozoom innovation. seeing that you require a power help, the nadia q is presumably the way you need to go. be that as it may, you require a top of the line adaptation of the guide to understand that stereozoom include.

ajwhite Definitely the Alta Pro's. The huge contrast between the two is the binaural preparing and spatial commotion administration and also a programmed learning mode. There is more information here:http://www.oticon.com/~asset/cache.a...=14&format=web

I found the Quintra's great with the standard computed setting with no tweaking. Where it tumbled down for me, as I've stated, is with discourse in clamor.

I differ firmly with you about simple being better. The simple sound might be a bit smoother, however there was no real way to control the approaching sounds to wipe out undesirable foundation commotion. Your mind needed to do it all. Nothing amiss with that. In the event that you lean toward simple sound perhaps that is the thing that you should investigate. I think there are strings here managing simple listening devices solely. You might need to peruse them. Surely a fundamental simple HA would be substantially less expensive.

digitalohmygod Hello ajwhite,

I need to ensure that you are utilizing Alta Pro, not Alta. What is the distinction between the two Altas? I know there is a value differnce of nearly $1K.

For me, if the enormous contrast between Alta Pro and Quintra is hearing discourse in clamor, at that point I think this not the greatest issue for me since I utilize portable amplifiers for the most part at work, a tranquil place. Things being what they are, if hearing at commotion is not a worry, do you think Quintra is adequate for discourse acknowledgment in calm place?

Goodness, I have to refresh my last visit to Costco. The lady still not printed the settings for me upon my solicitations. Additionally, she just revealed to me she expanded some high recurrence in the music mode and included some lower recurrence in the ordinary in addition to mode.

After I went to my office and addressed a few people, I found the typical in addition to mode was not as clear as before for conversing with white individuals, however a tad bit better for asian (still not incredible). The music mode was a tad bit better for everyone yet at the same time not great. For hell's sake, she didn't recognize what she was doing and continued blocking me by utilizing her back. I know another chief is originating from coming Monday and I will solicit to see the supervisor rather from her. She is making my life hopeless.

Additionally, I am not 100% concur that the present innovation is better than anyone might have expected. What I think the better piece of the present innovation is blue tooth and some different components, similar to criticism yakkity yak. The most vital thing is sound nature of hearing clear discourse. I don't mean hearing winged animals singing or additional unmistakable music, just discourse. The new innovation makes sound that is sharp, in some cases excessively unforgiving, making it impossible to hear the words obviously. Something else is the computerized sound is weaker than simple, yes simple, the antiquated innovation, regarding power. In this manner, the advanced portable hearing assistants require control recipient keeping in mind the end goal to adjust for the lower control disservice and infrequently it make exceptionally cruel sound, such as piercing my eardrum, damn it!! Additionally, the new advanced listening device is great damn more costly than programmable simple amplifier (like a half and half, the energy of simple and the adaptability of computerized). Anyway, the entire world has gone to advanced and won't backpedal. Perhaps I have gone too far. Presently back to Quintra, I will backpedal to Costco one week from now to see the new director and request tweaking.

ajwhite Here's my audiogram which I at long last had sufficient energy to do.

ajwhite Doc Jake, yes, you are right. In any case, in any event the present new innovation is new poo. 8-)

Doc Jake remember old innovation was new innovation at one time. what you believe is world class today will be poop contrasted with innovation quite a while from now.

digitalohmygod Hello,

How enormous is the distinction of hearing discourse when utilizing Oticon Alta versus Quintra as far as discourse acknowledgment? Say scale 1 to 10, what is the size of Alta and Quintra?

Much appreciated

ajwhite My proposal is to just request that the fitter quit hindering your view. She is working for you and you are paying great cash for her to do it. So be amenable however firm. I've been purchasing HA's for a long time and if the fitter won't let me know all that they are doing, I ask for another fitter or leave.

I've abandoned the Quintra's. They essentially don't make an adequate showing with regards to in boisterous situations. Mind you I'm extremely fastidious and specific. There is no reason I ought to need to work so difficult to introduce and extrapolate sounds in my mind to fill in the holes left by not as much as proficient listening devices.

The Quintra's are double center (what Rexton calls 2c innovation) and they are a major change over earlier computerized helps on account of their extra speed and memory. Nonetheless, the new Oticon Alta line is quad center and has much more speed and memory. Really, significantly more. This takes into consideration progressively and better control of the approaching sign to reproduce typical hearing. Furthermore, fortunately the Alta's work exceptionally well for me. What's more, I'm very much aware not every person can manage the cost of the most recent innovation. This is exceptionally miserable and a manufactured circumstance actually.(Rant!)The devastating of listening devices to legitimize offering at a lower cost, is to me a noteworthy sin. There is no reason, other than advertising, that those with bring down wages ought to be denied of the most recent innovation in view of valuing recipes. A large portion of the genuine cost of the raising guides isn't in the equipment. It's in the examination and the showcasing and circulation. I get exceptionally furious each time I think about this. On the off chance that you don't think your guides are injured, mosey on down to your Oticon merchant and attempt a couple of Alta Pros. I discover them nothing not as much as extraordinary. Sadly they offer for $6,000 and in the event that you are tenacious, can get them for somewhat under $5,000. That is as yet a pocketful of progress contrasted with $2,600 for the "new" Quintra's. More regrettable, a tremendous piece of those in require can't bear the cost of the Quintra's. I've demoed 8 or 9 unique guides from all the real producer's in the course of the most recent half a month, and trust me the most recent innovation is a genuine achievement. An ocean change. An outlook change. Utilize whatever banality you like, however surprisingly in my life, I never again battle to listen. Are these guides culminate? Damnation no! Be that as it may, they no longer awkward. The more established innovation was positively an assistance. In any case, an answer? Damnation no..(End Rant!)

digitalohmygod Hello ajwhite,

I have been utilizing Epog for a long time now. It took me one year to get the correct settings and get used to Oticon sound. Be that as it may, I need diverse settings for various individuals. Make it basic. Program one (no pressure at high frequecy band, there are 3 principle recurrence groups) for local English speaking Caucasian. Program two (with some pressure at high recurrence band) for Asian (with some highlight).

I am experimenting with Quintra for just about 2 weeks now. Program one (ordinary in addition to a few increases) useful for local speaking Caucasian, yet contorted for a few Asians. Program 2 (music mode) useful for Asians however not clear for ladies particularly in boisterous place. Program 3 (ordinary) clear however not sufficiently boisterous for Caucasian.

I will see the professional in Costco tomorrow, would you be able to give me some proposal to advise the techician how to alter the Quintra.

Incidentally, the professional in that Costco is irregular. She doesn't need me to take a gander at how she do the alteration by utilizing her back to square me from seeing her working. She additionally did not have any desire to print the settings of the 3 programs even I asked. Any proposals?

Revision: The sound issues were because of a snow storm the day I demo'd utilizing a mobile phone. The Oticon's were fine whenever I utilized them and the sound was entirely great. Sorry about that.

cwoernle Thanks for sharing.

cwoernle Thanks for the educational and empowering post.

ajwhite I'm as of now demoing the quintras. I'm utilizing the power collector in trench display. It's initial yet however so far they appear to be fine however they require additionally dialing in, both by the audi and my cerebrum.

I'm posting since I've been wearing HA's for a long time now. So i've had a ton of involvement with audi's and fitters and ent's. I've discovered Costco no preferable and no more regrettable over the private distributors (counting ENT's and audioloogy divisions of huge healing centers).

Everything comes down to your individual fitter. Period.

I'm as of now likewise demoing the Oticon Alta's. A fine guide for sure, with what I consider as great a discourse quality as one could anticipate. Where it tumbles down is the compacted feel of discourse in clamor. Not terrible personality you, and clarity is high. Which for most would be the main thing of significance. btw, execution with a telephone is vile. Not so much the sound but rather with no telecoil, it experiences serious difficulties up the voices. I'd purchase the blue tooth. I quickly attempted it in the audi's office and it was pleasant.

I discovered Starkey's somewhat "messy" for my tastes. A lot of variety from circumstance to circumstance, an a specific general detachment. Similar to a midrange stereo speaker, versus an extremely costly speaker. I liked the sound mark versus the oticons, a more full stable.

The Bernafon Accriva 9's were fascinating. Very surprising than anything I've listened. As though they were making a decent attempt to copy characteristic sound yet simply didn't have the speed or oomph to complete it. Mind you my misfortune is in the extreme range. I'll post my audiogram when I get an opportunity to search for it.

Throughout the years my most loved guides have been Sonic Innovations. Exceptionally common, however to the detriment of discourse confinement. Since my listening ability has become continuously more terrible, I'm not entirely certain they have the power I require. I go Tuesday for a Flip 80 fitting, so we'll see.

I've demoed the last era of Phonaks. Disgusting. For me. The projects simply aren't splendid and fall all finished themselves attempting to acclimate to the sound condition with none truly assuming responsibility.

My experience is in science so I'm very much aware of the considerable number of bargains that should be made on account of equipment and programming restrictions.

For those of you with little involvement with HA's and fitting. Take as much time as is needed. Try not to be reluctant to make your container insane. It's hours for them, it'll be years of wearing for you. Furthermore, they get paid to work. (intriguing idea that).

So locate the correct container, take as much time as necessary. Enable your mind to change, tweak, calibrate once more. Furthermore, be set up to trade off. The critical step is realizing which bargains work for you.

I have a considerable measure of understanding, despite everything I get baffled so hold tight.

Gracious, yes. The quintra's appear to be a fine guide. Fast preparing, sensibly clear with a decent open sound. Too soon to remark more. I'll repost after I get some additional time with every one of these guides added to my repertoire.

mirkee I am a Costco fan the distance around. I look for some items there, HAs included on account of cost as well as in light of value, client administration and support. I am exceptionally content with the hearing office at costco and have been a client for a long time. I have dependably had the best administration and support there.

Not associated whatever...

I purchased the Rexton Quintras, in addition to other things, since they were littler. Having had them for some time now, I don't know they are any more noticeable or agreeable than my old Rexton Rivos or besides the new KS5's at Costco. I think past a specific size littler simply does not make a difference much, for me, in any event.

elijahlovejoy Willy,

We see what we need to see. I see the fulfilled Costco customers, and gain from you who see the despondent ones.

I think there are fine costco fitters, and there are others. Doubtlessly.

That is valid for outside HIS and Audis, as well. imho

I like Costco for quality, astonishing merchandise exchange, solid help, and OFTEN great individuals.

Not generally, obviously.

my sentiment is that you regularly pay A LOT for a portable amplifier, and don't generally get an incentive for cash. At primary road shops, with Audis joined to ENT docs, and at Costco. So I don't know that you get what you pay for.

Some of the time, you get significantly less. Furthermore, perhaps infrequently you get more?

I see such a large number of various terms being utilized for the administering individual in every one of these posts. I think I have been off-base to utilize the term audi or audiologist freely.

The apportioning individual at my CostCo fitting had this title on his business card:

"Senior Hearing Specialist" yet I don't generally recognize what that implies as far as state licensure or preparing. So I googled the term and discovered this definition being given by CostCo to employing purposes:https://wfa.kronostm.com/index.jsp?L..._ID=9698529692

So regardless I don't know for beyond any doubt what that implies as far as a state permit, yet it gave me a clearer thought of what CostCo requires as far as experience, and so forth.

I will state that my Senior Hearing Specialist certainly appeared to be, exceptionally proficient and capable in running and perusing the test, and in altering both the demo HAs and the ones I was fitted with when I left the store for the trial. I was exceptionally satisfied and inspired both with him and with the entire experience.

Is this term a show-stopper in the calling, or only a worker title made by CostCo. In the event that I alluded to him in future posts as a "SHS" would anybody know what I implied?

In the event that I get an opportunity to look at the authentications on the divider at the season of my booked change, possibly I will get greater clearness on his state affirmation. Be that as it may, as I would like to think so far he is very able.

Much thanks to you, rasmus. I'm attempting to make sense of if that is something to be thankful for me or not.

I don't know whether the individual to the side being omnidirectional is something worth being thankful for in that circumstance. Gotta think and attempt distinctive things.

Will stay with the Quintras for some time longer since I've just had them two weeks. Such a large amount of this is by all accounts hypothetical and subjective. I think giving it a shot "live" is the best test, which I am doing with the Quintras. Regardless I need to make a rundown of things I need to talk about with the fitter at Costco tomorrow. He appears to be equipped and willing to offer assistance. I'm fortunate that I have 4 Costcos inside 20 minutes of my home.

mirkee I am watching these posts with intrigue. I am the other person and groberts and I have been conveying. I have precisely the same with the Quintras as he does. Discourse is worse and I get some spurrious sounds. My figure is that the Revos we both had already were not awful by any means. I anticipated that would be wowed by new innovation however it is not happening. In all actuality, I am just 12 days into the procedure and will go for my first change in two days.

two months in and still not upbeat.. it's an ideal opportunity to pull the fitting and proceed onward.

mirkee Actually...I speculated on the "minitek", since you spelled it "mnitek" or something comparable. Got Mnitek Mortgage however very little more. I have now looked into Minitek which I figure is a Seimens item. It's difficult to filter through all the BS on some of their special material. I figure one of the components is that you can put the Minitek some place and it goes about as a superior amplifier and nearer to the source (expecting you put it there). Putting it on a speaker's platform sounds marvelous for somebody with awful hearing who truly needs to hear everything a speaker says. It additionally streams music and TV substance to HA's?

I can't make sense of BT, even by running a web look. Possibly somebody less cafinated can edify me? Sorry Doc...couldn't help it.

What is Tek and Minitek? What is BT?

Wish I had a rundown of all the accessible program and what they do. Somebody posted a short rundown without depictions prior however I wish I had more. My first change is Wednesday, which makes it two weeks after beginning setup. I have worn HAs for a long time.-

Doc Jake I consider some you have unlikely desires.. 99 out of 100 HAs will input on the off chance that you lay your head/ear against a firm surface. 99 out of 100 HAs will sound too uproarious ideal out of the crate for first time clients. (they have a volume control) IMO having all the distinctive projects stacked on a rexton is more inconvenience at that point it's worth. get your auto/ordinary program dialed in first.

on the off chance that you have the tek/mnitek have them push the low end sounds up a little and cut the highs down a bit.

I set 99 out of 100 folks with prog1/typical, prog2 BT (not discretionary), prog3 tek/mintek, 4 discourse concentrate (generally utilized as a part of an auto to hear next to/behind w/o turning your head). I have put whatever they ask for in prog5 however most say that prog1 handles the circumstance too. I set one on-board change to do volume and the other program control. unless something is absolutely crooked wear the guides no less than half a month prior to beginning to "tune" them. on the off chance that they are too boisterous just tun them down. I speculate most will begin moving the volume go down after some time.

jay_man2 Phil, running the "hardware" commotion was aligning the input administration in the guides.

PhiVer Hi Folks,

I grabbed my Quintras last thursday so have just had them for a couple of days so I think its a bit too soon to make an educated conclusion/audit.

Yet, I can hear discussions much clearer, flying creature commotions, and so on.

I am getting some criticism when I say lay back on the love seat sideways and go to rest my head/ear on my measured hand "Shriek" LOL yet I'm accepting I will condition myself not to do it.

Some reaction re Programs, remembering I have the Bluetooth transmitter.

1. Programmed

2. BT Phone.

3. Commotion/Party (3 mics, this switches off the 2 side mics and just the inside {I spelt it effectively, you folks spell it wrong} one remains on, you hear where your head is pointing)

4. BT Transmitter (the gadget you can interface with television/stereo/Reciever and stream to portable amplifiers)

5. Outside (Reduced wind commotion. However to attempt on the pushbike)

6. Music.

They are all somewhat extraordinary for instance while driving home I played boisterous music in music mode at that point turned stereo off and thought I had some new rattles in my auto, changed to Automatic and the rattles vanished.

Volume control on the bluetooth? I think you can push here and there around 8 times (16 add up to). 3 beeps at the upper and lower levels and a tune when you hit your set/standard position.

My inquiry/s are the way that the HA set them up.

Portable amplifiers in ears with isolated receivers.

At that point through PC she ran a commotion program, similar to an apparatus sound......What is this?

At that point set me up with cones and some holding wires yet they appear to be sliding out a bit. Will talk about this in a little more than seven days when I backpedal for a tune.

As a rule she appears to mind, so most of the way there with that I presume.

Salud,

Phil.

mirkee I have had my Quintras for 10 days now. Not by any means upbeat, albeit perhaps that will be normal at this early date. I decided on the Quintras at Costco rather than the Kirklands in light of the fact that the fitter revealed to me that he would be wise to discourse acknowledgment with them and they sounded less mechanical or metallic.

I have two projects up until this point. Three really, on the off chance that you number the way that I thought the auto program was too noisy so I had him put in another program which is simply auto turned down two scores. So I have auto, auto +2 and commotion. Auto is still too uproarious however I think I'll get accustomed to it or simply turn it down.

I thought I would encounter to a greater degree a wow figure with these, what with all the discussion about more current innovation and so forth. Truth be told, I recollect my Revos being better at discourse acknowledgment. I unquestionably have less criticism with the Quintras, in spite of the fact that input was negligible with the Revos and just when I scratched my ear or rested my head too profoundly in a couch pad or comparative circumstance. I would prefer not to backpedal to my Revos right now since I would prefer not to befuddle my mind significantly more. I figure I have to give the Quintras additional time. I found that a few sounds are complemented excessively. I wear a name identification and a blaze drive around my neck which make an uproarious clunking commotion with the Quitras. Flushing the drudged transmits some high shrieking notes. A lot of street clamor when driving with the pooch in the auto and the windows down. I am a secondary teacher and I think that its harder to isolate discourse when more than one individual is talking. The beep from the microwave that tells me when cooking is done is presently a progression of twittering sounds rather than a beep. Same is valid with the sound of my auto scratch dandy that tells me the auto is bolted. When viewing a motion picture on TV with my quality 5 channel framework (all JBL, some old school) I experience considerable difficulties discourse once in a while. This happens progressively when there is a delicate entry and something like winged animals out of sight. The sound of the feathered creatures meddles with discourse acknowledgment. I know the motion picture is altered to accentuate the flying creatures as of now yet this was not an issue with my Revos. I know I have just had them 10 days and I require extra tweaking and I'll keep you refreshed as I go.

Wearing these, I ponder whether I may have been exceptional off with the Kirklands which have had such great surveys here. I'll give the Quintras additional time, yet the prospect of the Kirklands still bugs me. This portable hearing assistant thing is a serious subjective process! I'll likely go for my first change ahead of schedule one week from now, most likely on 12/11, which will make it an entire two weeks since unique fitting.

When I attempt to increment or diminishing volume on the Quintras by means of remote I think nothing happens. I get no beep or other flag through my HA to tell me that volume is going up or down. Simply after I push the + or - a few times do I get a beep, and still, at the end of the day, not constantly. Is the remote broken or do different clients get no flag showing volume up or down? Finally, I have that extra manager/security tubing that wraps inside my ear on these. I never had that on my Revos and never lost a portable amplifier. The finish of the tube bangs into within my ear shell and it is somewhat anoying. Any musings?

Sorry to learn so wordy. I'll continue posting all through the procedure.

llagerva I am anticipating any answer as I have a similar circumstance. Certain foundation commotions cause to television to be suppressed.

With respect to the change in my listening ability, I have been battling, yet think I have to get a few frequencies balanced. They may be set just TOO noisy. furthermore, that is increasing all that I listen, so in any condition other than calm spots where there is one voice or TV, I feel tested. I solidly trust they will be awesome once I get them dialed in. They are littler and more agreeable than my previous 6 year old Rexton Revo's. I will likewise attempt to get a duplicate of my audiogram or take a photograph of the recurrence bend on the PC screen at the costco sound focus. My next arrangement is this Wednesday.

I have three projects, Auto, Noise and Music. None are truly very different or superior to the next. My HIS as Costco said it is perfect to get the Auto mode appropriately changed in accordance with the point where that works for me 90% - 100% of the time. Yet, regardless it bodes well to have two or three projects that have clamor wiping out or perhaps more engaged/directional settings. What do different clients think?

What number of projects are practical and bode well?

I might beyond any doubt want to hear a few reactions to this post. I am experiencing a comparable circumstance. Discourse acknowledgment in person is great yet discourse on TV is so-so. In the event that there are a considerable measure of superfluous sounds, similar to flying creatures or shrieking apparatus on a TV film, the discourse gets muted or secured by those higher sounds. I presume the fledgling sounds, for instance, are lessened amid sound altering of the motion picture to tell you they are in a charming setting. I likewise consider what number of projects the run of the mill individual has and what they are. Likewise, is there a site where I can discover what every one of these projects do out of the container? The Rexton site is very little offer assistance.

Much obliged once more

rasmus_braun Both gadgets are fit for fitting your misfortune. I would propose attempting the KS5 first since it's lower taken a toll and contains binaural components that aren't accessible in the Quintra. The KS5 is $1900/combine, and the Quintra is $2700/match.

iarooster The "new" remote is similarly as straightforward. Program switch, volume up/down, off/on, and "home" (come back to the default program/volume).

mirkee I requested my Quintra HAs yesterday. I have the old remote from my 6 yr. old Rexton Revos. I would not call it futile but rather it was straightforward. ON/OFF, UP/DOWN volume, 3 programs. I have conveyed it for a long time and just utilized it on more than one occasion. I was persuaded that the new remote is more detailed. I'll report back when I get it. The truth of the matter is that with every one of these fancy odds and ends, I have my HA set to where I need it and after that never utilize the remote. The photo of the remote on the Rexton site is of the old remote. I trust the updated one is better and possibly you were demonstrated the old one.

My primary inspiration was 1. Better discourse acknowledgment (trusting this is valid). 2. Littler that my old ones and the Kirkland 5's, yet not as little as the Charismos, which I thought would effortlessly drop out. Qintras felt right. 3. Longer battery life than the other two, per contribution on this discussion (once more, trusting this ends up being valid). In case I'm despondent I'll attempt the K5s and live with the bigger frame calculate. In any case, I'm trusting it will be a change over my old Rextons. I've been content with my old HAs and ought to most likely have kept them a while longer. I needed another match for the new innovation and on the grounds that I'll resign in the following couple of years and lose my protection so I needed to act now. Also, I didn't come to America to have second rate stuff.

Bszamd I looked at the Quintras and the pocket remote. They were agreeable. The pocket remote was futile - I'm certain they couldn't give them away- - so they're giving them away. Exceptionally interesting. Why the makers can't think of helpful gear?

iarooster I'm going in tomorrow for a tweaking and am searching for counsel on what to tell the fitter/how to clarify my"problem." all in all, I'm very fulfilled, despite the fact that I don't hear much distinction in the different projects. I have programmed, clamor, music, and outside. I can differentiate amongst auto and music, as a few notes/tones/instruments trip the input concealment. In any case, generally, very little contrast that I can listen.

My one issue is that in programmed, the uproar and tinniness of my own voice appears to fluctuate a lot. Now and then - and it is by all accounts in noisier conditions, or in the wake of tuning in to music in auto mode (I don't try to switch them for my 10 minute drive to work, for instance)- - my voice sounds quite common and at a typical level. Yet, regularly at the workplace, where it's sensibly tranquil, or at home where it's certainly peaceful, my voice is terribly noisy and tinny. It resembles the guides have turned up the pick up in the calm (or pulled it down in the music), and they're not straightening out rapidly.

Likewise, can the uproarious be made gentler and the delicate made louder by an incredible degree? At work in the bigger meeting rooms, it can be difficult to hear even with the guides (in spite of the fact that it's better than anyone might have expected). Just wrenching up the volume helps however it makes my voice additional uproarious.

Much appreciated!

elijahlovejoy Which Costco?

Name of fitter or audi or HIS?

Good fortunes! Awesome that you discovered this gathering.

Just bought my first portable amplifiers yesterday - the Costco Quintras. I get them 10/1 and after that the fun starts. 2 helps, charger and controller for $2,700. Likewise, the audiologist at Costco was magnificent to manage. I will report my perceptions after 10/1.

In a prior post I said that I'd follow up on a report in the matter of what the free audiologist prescribed. She prescribed the Phonak Audeo Q, inconspicuously pushing the Q70 and Q50. By and large, a less noteworthy visit than my stop at Costco. The workplace was more pleasant, however the hearing test was contracted, and I didn't get the chance to experiment with a couple of the Audeo resembles I did the Quintras. Indeed, she didn't have me attempt on a guide so I could feel what it resembled. Maybe the guide she was demonstrating me was a nonfunctional sham, however despite everything it could have been put in my ear.

Inclining firmly on backpedaling to Costco to experiment with the Kirklands...

groberts hey Gang, I've been wearing my Quintra's for 10 days. I got 8 days of battery life before supplanting. Exceptionally content with that.

With respect to the change in my listening ability, I have been battling, yet think I have to get a few frequencies balanced. They may be set basically TOO uproarious. what's more, that is enlarging all that I listen, so in any condition other than calm spots where there is one voice or TV, I feel tested. I immovably trust they will be awesome once I get them dialed in. They are littler and more agreeable than my previous 6 year old Rexton Revo's. I will likewise attempt to get a duplicate of my audiogram or take a photograph of the recurrence bend on the PC screen at the costco sound focus. My next arrangement is this Wednesday.

I have three projects, Auto, Noise and Music. None are truly very different or superior to the next. My HIS as Costco said it is perfect to get the Auto mode appropriately acclimated to the point where that works for me 90% - 100% of the time. In any case, regardless it bodes well to have two or three projects that have commotion crossing out or possibly more engaged/directional settings. What do different clients think?

What number of projects are practical and bode well?

llagerva So far my Quintras are functioning admirably. I have had them for somewhat less than two months and have been back for two modifications. I just have one program, TV, as the programmed setting appears to deal with generally circumstances. Still have a little issue with a few voices on BBC appears, however it is OK more often than not. However since this is my first wander into HAs I am not sure what I ought to anticipate. I wear them from 7 a.m. to 11:30 p.m. every day and just expel them for showering or when playing tennis or shooting trap and wearing dirts. I am exceptionally content with Costco and the individual that I manage. Her state of mind is "call me on the off chance that you need assistance or a change" and she will require some serious energy with me. Up until now, so great. I trust that I settled on the correct choice. Additionally, I have not yet discovered a purpose behind purchasing any Bluetooth gadget.

NateS Phil:

Shockingly they don't offer the "demo" administration of attempting before you set out your 'well deserved', yet have the Costco 90 day unconditional promise.

Try not to feel denied about that, Phil. That is truly they way it worked for me here in the States and I expect in all CostCos.

The main free "demo" I got was to spend a hour or so strolling around the store shopping while at the same time wearing the inhouse demo which was briefly customized in view of my Audiogram. When I returned back to the hearing dept. what's more, said "yes I need to begin my 90 day trial!" I marked papers charging everything to our AmEx Visa, chose my shading decision, and the request was put.

In view of the revealed understanding of others, I am sure of a full discount should they not work out inside 90 days, but rather I had to prepay in full when the request was put. Obviously, I'm getting a charge out of them so much I can't envision returning them now, yet that is an alternate issue.

All the best, Nate

I believe you are alright groberts you appeared to stop mid sentence.....

I am 51 and have upper end misfortune from playing in groups and going to shows. I am an apparatus Salesman and in the course of the most recent couple of years it has been getting consistently more hard to appropriately carry out my occupation which includes a great deal of tuning in to enable the customer to settle on a decent decision.

Around 3 months back 3 of my children flown out to your shores to record a collection and we had a supper before they cleared out and I missed the vast majority of the discussion and it was quite troubling as you have 2 decisions 1. "Smile&nod" (Classic sig) your head as though you comprehend what they are stating or 2. persistently end the discussion stream with 'Grieved, missed that'...It was a great opportunity to quit hesitating!

In the wake of perusing and looking into and following a great deal of considerations and sentiments on here I have requested a couple of Rexton Quintras with the Bluetooth for A$3K from the Costco in Melbourne.

Lamentably they don't offer the "demo" administration of attempting before you set out your 'well deserved', yet at the same time have the Costco 90 day unconditional promise. I'm speculating that the main time I will be utilizing this is if the Audiologist does not set them up extremely well and doesn't work with me, yet starting interchanges have been alright.

I need to hold up around 3 weeks to get them, we don't have a swag of Costcos in Australia yet, in reality an entire 3 stores (Melbourne, Sydney & Canberra) with 3 all the more opening soon.

I will be making a rundown of things to check when they are getting setup, however wont be excessively requesting as I need Audiologist on-side.

In any case, for the time being thank you to all on here who ceaselessly make positive and commonsense remarks for and against and the regard that is appeared by all on others remarks.

Extraordinary on account of llagerva, iarooster, groberts, ziploc, nates, doubledown, palmfish and minnbobber for beginning the string. Sounds like I have gotten a honor and am doing my much obliged, in any case this string settled on my choice for me.

Thinking about how you went Beninden in getting your combine sorted?

Will even now take after string yet wont get them until early December so until then just "nod&smile"

Much obliged once more,

Phil.

groberts At some point, it appears like the enchantment of a decent fitting is dialing in the correct frequencies and altering any of the other sound settings that wipe out commotion or weaken and so on (don't have the foggiest idea about every one of the elements) But that is gotta be the contrast between great fitting and terrible fitting. It must take a mix of experience changing in accordance with different degrees of hearing misfortune and in addition knowing the product and eq settings. Simply speculating here.

How would you know who's great at that? Is an audiologist any superior to a Senior Hearing Specialist? God just knows. I

I trust the term Senior Hearing Specialist is a Costco position. He/she would be the supervisor of the portable hearing assistant focus in the store. The term HIS is a permitting term which shows fruition of a certify 2-year program (the likeness a RN). An Audiologist is a specialist despite the fact that I think Ive seen reference to some of them having "just" a Masters Degree.http://www.spokanefalls.edu/techprof/HIS/Home.aspx

palmfish When I went to Costco for my first appt, the HIS took my audiogram and did every one of the settings in the PC and customized a "demo match" for me to attempt in the store. I certainly got the tinny treble sounds that demonstrated I was getting the lift in high freqs I require. Like you, when I took the HAs off after the demo, I had the elevated feeling of suppressed hearing that you encountered.

On the day I came back to lift them up, the HIS had as of now customized my HA's and set up the extras preceding my appt so they were prepared to go. He just strolled me through everything, we did the REM, and I was ready. They sounded precisely as I recollect the demo combine sounding already and I couldnt be more satisfied.

I disclosed to all of you that since I think it is a case of how Costco should legitimately treat a client and guarantee that the HA's are appropriately fit. In the wake of perusing your post, I trust your HIS did not fit you appropriately. I would talk with the director and clarify what happened and make a request to work with another more encountered HIS - or maybe the supervisor him/herself (My HIS was the administrator).

I am exceptionally satisfied with the polished methodology and aptitude of my HIS at Costco and the level of administration and nature of HA. For hell's sake, another HIS that I havent even worked with knows me and welcomes me by name each time I have been there. I am exceptionally happy I went to Costco and I would prescribe them to anybody.

Beninden Hi all,

I have another match of Quintra's that I got the previous evening. I've been sneaking here for a bit, and simply joined on the grounds that I at last needed to post. I'm 44 years of age and have upper end hearing misfortune in both ears. It's in all likelihood due to an excessive number of noisy shows and no ear insurance when I was youthful and stupid. Fourteen days prior I went to an ENT who did a full hearing test. He alluded me to an audi that sold Starkey's I attempted the Starkey Xino's and she spent around 45 minutes altering them including my own voice and murmur and snaps. It was stunning. When I took them off, the change was significant. I had ear covers on. She at that point continue to give me the $$$ at around 6K.

I booked a counsel at Costco and chosen to run with the Quntra's. Estimate was a worry and I needed BT availability.

I lifted them up the previous evening and as I sit hear at the beginning of today, I'm hopeless. I don't think these were balanced effectively by any means. Despite the fact that this is a protest, I anticipate strolling back in today to cure the circumstance and might want some direction on what to request/ask similar to changes.

My appt was at 5pm. The initial 20 minutes were spent by the HIS (not an audi) opening up the bundles and demoing things like how to utilize the battery analyzer, demonstrating to me the direction manual and so on. She at that point at last got around to getting them on me. Stacked the primary program and asked me how they sounded. I made the basic remarks that my voice was too boisterous, and tinny and that I heard murmur and clicking. She balanced by squeezing a catch called "possess voice" on the product program. I said that helped a bit, yet I clarified that the Starkey woman had done modifications by means of the realistic equalizer. The HIS said she could do that as well. She at that point seemed to mishandle in the product, not knowing where this range was. After she found it and began making modifications, I revealed to her they were just being done on one side. She said no, that wasn't the situation. I indicated out and asked her make an acclimation to one side (red) and watch that the left channels did not move. She at that point recognized I was correct and attempted to settle it, however she never backpedaled to default to begin again.

Now, she took a gander at the clock and I asked how much longer I had. It was 5:40 and she said she got a kick out of the chance to start to pack up around 5:45. With that, I felt surged and said I would attempt this setting for some time. By then the HIS asked me which programs I needed, despite the fact that she didn't plainly disclose them to me. She downloaded everything and unplugged it. Now, she gave me the remote and said the projects were on it to change. They weren't. I demonstrated her that it was in setup mode. She at that point needed to attach everything back and begin once again with the download.

After I exited, I did some perusing and understood two or three things.

1. The remote catches are totally modify capable. At the present time my is set to the default home and quiet as an afterthought.

2. It shows up the switches on the earpieces are modify capable too. ie. volume/control/program scroll. I don't know what mine are doing.

Generally critically. Their is no wow understanding. I know they are working, yet their is practically zero contrast aside from a position of great authority end sounds, for example, twist in my auto window. There is positively no sentiment ear covers when I take them off.

I'm backpedaling over today, to voice my failure and get some determination. The HIS I had is off today, so perhaps it will be better.

I know these are incredible portable hearing assistants. I know it will require me some investment to modify, yet my hurried and bobbled involvement on pickup was a dismal begin. On the off chance that anybody has any proposals on specifics I could demand of the HIS (we don't have audi's at mine) when making beginning changes, I would value it. The woman the previous evening, unquestionably did not appear to be comfortable with programming.

The projects she gave me were:

Programmed

Commotion/Party

Center 360

Outside

Much obliged ahead of time.

Exceptionally accommodating. Much obliged. Yes, I am another client here. Not an Audi. Be that as it may, I don't have an audiogram. Could Costco give that to me? I backpedal for a FU in two or three weeks. Be that as it may, feel like I may need to backpedal sooner. Will see. Until further notice, I will take a stab at turning these down a couple of snaps. They appear be picked up intensely. When I hack or sniffle, OMG is it ever boisterous in my mind. what's more, Conversation doesn't appear to be any simpler to listen. Perhaps they are too uproarious?

Additionally on account of everybody about Hearing Planet. The person I conversed with couldn't have been more pleasant, yet I likewise get the reasonable feeling they are basically an outsourcing referral mediator organization to private audiologists. furthermore, they would prefer not to make the referral in case I'm not going to "purchase" from the nearby Audiologist. The Hearing Planet rep (Rick) said one nearby audiologist is the best in the nation. Yet, actions speak louder than words. What's more, I truly would prefer not to pay more for HA's very little preferred or discernible better over the Rexton Quintras which appear to be exceedingly respected. Will utilize my 90 day trial and attempt to get these dialed into my enjoying. (what's more, better hearing)

A debt of gratitude is in order for the information and sorry to learn about your experience.

I needed to include to new clients that that I could never prescribe hearingplanet for another client. They are truly best for the individuals who have the apparatuses to program their own particular guides. Long time clients who never had issues with having their guides set at the default settings and don't expect a considerable measure of personalization are potentially another possibility for the administration.

From what I read about the administration is that hearingplanet is only an outsourcing organization that doles out the undertaking of fitting and modifying helps to nearby audiologists who will submit to their terms. I read some place that these nearby audiologists get next to no for every customer so they truly can't stand to invest a ton of energy in them.

New clients truly need to do their examination and lead telephone interviews for any potential autonomous audi. recognizing what brands (should dependably be more than 1) they offer is one major sign of how equipped they are.

I made my first buy of portable amplifiers five years prior through Hearing Planet, and they were extremely decent. In any case, the primary audiologist they sent me too was dreadful. He had an exceptionally amazing very much outfitted office, however he was discourteous ridiculous. For instance:

1) When I disclosed to him that I was uncertain regardless of whether to press the catch for sounds that were so low I didn't know I would hear them under ordinary regular conditions, he basically yelled "Simply press the catch or don't press the catch!;

2) Whenever I got some information about the portable amplifiers after the test, his answer was constantly: "I recently addressed that." I needed to over and again advise him that an inquiry is not replied until the point that the patient/client comprehends the appropriate response;

3) It took me four endeavors to attempt to get a reasonable clarification of the distinction to my potential hearing change between the Audeo V and the IX and I was as yet not by any means beyond any doubt I knew the appropriate response when I cleared out his office so I just picked the more costly model;

4) He appeared to be unconscious of paid-for administrations which I thought were incorporated into the cost, including boundless office visits amid the publicized 45-day time for testing for calibrating. He said he would confine those to what HE felt was "sensible" as though I was forlorn and would set aside opportunity to go see him only for entertainment only;

5) He declined to recognize the other post-trial promoted administrations, repair and misfortune arrangement;

6) He made a few remarks to my better half, and about my age, which both she and I got a handle on were of place and unseemly and made her vibe awkward, and afterward he revealed to her that if these portable amplifiers did not work out, that she "could simply get a more youthful beau."

7) He revealed to me his future administration to me may rely on upon regardless of whether I purchased a specific dryer from him, and when I asked the amount it would add to the cost, he answered: "That will rely on upon what number of dollars I can press out of you!"

I am NOT making this up!

When I revealed this experience to HearingPlanet and declined to backpedal to him, they sent me to a moment, exceptionally decent audiologist who continued to give me an a great deal more intensive hearing test, addressed every one of my inquiries, was extremely proficient and consoling and I made the buy.

Be that as it may, I just realized as of late that I simply passed up a major opportunity for the "remote" model of Audeos by maybe a month, however perhaps no one thought about them at the time. This denied me of having the capacity to secure and utilize the spilling gear Phonak now offers for Audeos. Perhaps it was a pure oversight. I don't have the foggiest idea.

Furthermore, they cost me three times what the Costco KS5s I am trialing fetched. Obviously, I understand that innovation enhances and costs for advancement descends, so this may not be a reasonable examination.

All the best, Nate

I will get a significant chance to perceive how they function in a domain with a great deal of boisterous foundation clamor ....right away!

What number of various projects or settings would it be a good idea for me to need to browse?

llagerva I acquired my Quintras about a month back and got the charger as a piece of the bundle. I don't hope to need to trade any batteries for quite a while. I was given nearly 312s to go up against trips when I would prefer not to trick with the charger. I charge them consistently and all is a go in the morning.

I've just been through one set with my new Quintras, however it was more than eight days of 12-14 hours for each day.

groberts I put in my request for a couple of Rexton Quintra 2c's yesterday at Costco. My HAS really trusts the innovation gives predominant sound quality, forms quicker and in this way sounds better. Also, is better ready to recognize and isolate foundation commotion from engaged, confined discourse. This was my own involvement in the concise demo I did. With the 90 day trial/merchandise exchange, I chose I needed to begin here as opposed to object with Kirkland Signature 5.0's that just did not detach the foundation clamor from discourse so well. (Again concise demo, yet my has a LOT of understanding and I purchased my first combine of HA's from him 6 years prior) I trust he is great at what he does and that he doesn't sugar coat anything.

My new Quintra 2c's strength be in Thursday for fitting!! ...what's more, there is a unique I was told ...so I gain the Remote Power for nothing. Cool. ...in spite of the fact that its entirely huge and cumbersome. Try not to envision I will be bearing it with me. My HAS said I can make every one of the changes on the HA's themselves ..yet the Remote gives me a visual approach to alter settings.

rasmus_braun ziploc, you may be intrigued to realize that a variant of the Strata practically turned into the new Kirkland Signature 5.0 Premium Hearing Aids, however Rexton lost the agreement to ReSound.

whatsthat I ceased by last Tuesday, and my arrangement was set for Friday. Tomorrow, seven days after I initially ceased by, I will have an arrangement to get my Rexton Finesse 2c listening devices.

None of the distinctions are even remotely noteworthy as I would see it, with the exception of the tinnitus highlight. For most purposes, the gadgets will perform indistinguishably.

The Rexton Strata 18 is not the same as the Siemens Pure 7mi. A few components have been decreased or taken out in the Strata. For instance, Strata has 36 channels/18 pick up handles/5 equalizer settings while Pure has 48/20/6. Strata is additionally missing the tinnitus masker.

The Costco HA is essentially a rebranded ReSound Verso 9. It is a top of the line HA with every one of the components you would expect - auto directional mics, selectable listening modes, clamor concealment, binaural modes, e2e, bluetooth capacity, iPhone application control, TV connecting, and so on.

I don't know anything about the Pure Micon 7, yet I took a gander at the Siemens site and see it has a few components that the Costco Signature 5 doesn't. In particular, the Costco HA doesn't have a recargeable battery or tinnitus concealing element.

You ought to do some examination on the elements that are vital to you and look at them. I just barely began finding out about HA's myself since I've never worn them. I've quite recently spent the previous couple of weeks perusing and perusing and making inquiries and perusing some more...

Costco's Kirkland Signature 5.0's are: Resound, Costco's "Rexton" Quintra 2C are basically Siemens Strata 2C and so forth. ..Costco is more affordable, offers 90 days chance free/merchandise exchange, 3 years repair and substitution, normally extremely qualified Hearing Aid experts. I can't perceive any reason why NOT to utilize Costco.

Costco HA's are made by significant producers. The Signature 4's were rebranded Siemens and the Signature 5 is a rebranded ReSound.

Individuals get them since you are getting a $2000+ HA for $900.

I concur! I attempted both the Sig 5.0's and the Rexton Quintra 2C's in an assortment of circumstances while in the store. (I have had Bernafon for as long as 4 years and they have been only issues, particularly with dampness. I have had the Bernafon's back for benefit about like clockwork. No more Bernafon's for me.) I attempted a target examination between the Sig 5.0's and the Rexton Quintra. I got into circumstances where there were numerous discussions going, uproarious foundation commotions, singular discussions, tuning in from front to back and side to side also. As much as I needed to pick the Sig 5.0's a direct result of the $700 value distinction, I just couldn't legitimize it. I switched between the two guides no less than about six times in those diverse circumstances and the Rexton's were greatly improved for me. They sounded crisper, more common, extensively less demanding to decode voices and were more agreeable. I requested a couple of them and they will be in this Friday. I am anticipating getting them, and resigning my Bernafon. I will give an extra refresh after I have worn the Rexton's for fourteen days.

llagerva Rechargeable, Bluetooth and conceivably measure. Have not acquired Bluetooth unit but rather it is there on the off chance that I need it. Likewise, I felt alright with the proposal that I was given considering my way of life. Since this is my first wander into HAs I was flying visually impaired and needed to depend on research and suggestions.

Exceptionally reassuring about the Quintra 2C. Why did you pick them over the Kirkland Signature 5.0 or different models? The Quintra 2C's are not the least expensive.

Gee. Still, the Quintra 2C sounded better to me at smothering foundation clamor like trucks in Costco while opening up discourse. Superior to the Kirkland signature 5.0 model.

llagerva Had them for 4 days and in spite of the fact that I have a couple of issues I am upbeat. Since these are my first HAs I don't know precisely what's in store. She just set up one program and the sound is too boisterous and some high tones are sounding "tinny". I diminish the volume on the HAs to it's most reduced and a portion of the issue leaves. I just come back from a substantial gathering in a major tent where there were numerous discussions, kids shouting and open air clamors. I could really bear on a discussion superior to anything I have for quite a long time. Advance. I am recording my perceptions for half a month and will come back to have them balanced and programs set up of different conditions. Up until now, so great. Will report back later.

Did you get the Quintras this week? How goes it?

iarooster In a prior post I specified that I'd follow up on a report in the matter of what the free audiologist prescribed. She suggested the Phonak Audeo Q, quietly pushing the Q70 and Q50. By and large, a less noteworthy visit than my stop at Costco. The workplace was more pleasant, yet the hearing test was condensed, and I didn't get the chance to experiment with a couple of the Audeo resembles I did the Quintras. Truth be told, she didn't have me attempt on a guide so I could feel what it resembled. Maybe the guide she was indicating me was a nonfunctional sham, however despite everything it could have been set in my ear.

Inclining firmly on backpedaling to Costco to experiment with the Kirklands...

All things considered, I right now wear Bernafon (past era) and love the music program. After my arrangement today, both audis prescribed the KS5 for me. The huge reason they said was that the Resound programming had more setup/tweaking potential over the current Bernafon programming. With my more particular solicitations, they think it is less demanding to suit on the KS5's. Here in Canada, they are not anticipated that would touch base for one more week, so I figure I will hold up and give them a turn first. Different strings here sound promising in view of introductory reactions from genuine clients in the US.

Smile&Nod Well I'm about discourse acknowledgment/clearness so on the off chance that either is better for that I trust somebody can give some info.

Obviously, I have no chance to get of knowing whether that is valid. She specified that they don't take a shot at commission at Costco, which I don't question. In any case, having worked in a major box store myself 25 years prior, I realize that since you're not on commission doesn't imply that you don't have a personal stake in pushing certain items. Despite everything I have Nikon and Minolta coats hanging in the storeroom from the "focuses" we'd get from offering their rigging. Items may likewise be "spiffed" or convey a money related reward to the businessperson. When I moved into sound, notwithstanding the mantra "no highs, no lows, must be Bose" some sales representatives would dependably demo Bose speakers on the grounds that each model conveyed a heavy spiff.

Anyway, figure I'd invert the inquiry - why pick the Kirkland 5's over the Quintra? (Other than the undeniable value contrast?)

I'm considering unequivocally backpedaling and experimenting with the Kirkland's after I see what the autonomous audiologist suggests on Thursday. I'll update you as often as possible.

Smile&Nod Why did you all get these over the Signature 5s?

iarooster Aha, so the distinction may be in how bustling our separate Costco's are, and not my container lying about the conveyance time to the stores. For correlation, I called the center of the evening Wednesday and got an arrangement for 4:30 on Friday. Perhaps you'll need to move to Iowa.

llagerva Wow! 72 hours is extraordinary. It assumed control two weeks to get my first arrangement at our Costco. They should be, extremely occupied and offering a ton of HAs. Since I get mine on the first I will be keen on contrasting my first perceptions and yours.

I made an appearance at the neighborhood Costco to look at listening devices. This is the primary stop in my mission; I have a meeting with a free audiologist on Thursday, and suspected that a visit to Costco would give me something to contrast it with (other than when I went with my mom to Beltone years back).

With my misfortune (30dB @ 1k dropping to 80dB @ 8k) and hearing needs (change, gatherings, music) the gadget recommended the Quintras. She modified a couple and I wore them around the store, and looked at music in the auto. I was enjoyably shocked to find that music didn't sound excessively brilliant with the lift in the top of the line, voices sounded regular (other than my own) and more unmistakable. At the point when the guides were expelled, it appeared that a cover had been tossed over the world.

Anyway, the data I got that should I choose to arrange the Quintras, they'd have returned to the store in around 72 hours. That doesn't fit with the two week lead time in llagerva's post. Was my allocator lying or ignorant? Much appreciated.

rasmus_braun The greatest distinction is remote help. The Quintra can utilize Bluetooth streamers and the remote control unit. It additionally has synchronized volume and program changes. The case is bigger in light of the fact that it utilizes a 312 battery. It supports rechargeable batteries.

MinnBobber Thanks,

I am thinking about the Bernafon Acrivas and the Rexton Charismo - and now the Rexton Quintra/Strata.

How is it not the same as the Charismo?

I see it is somewhat greater size. I trust it may have a battery charger choice accessible.

Anything important on the execution that may aggravate it a superior or decision for me?

Much appreciated

the Bernafon Acrivas would be better execution.

I do 15-20 hours of outside games seven days (pickleball, biking) and need music lucidity. So dampness resistance,

wind commotion concealment , normal sound are most essential to me. Home discussions, television watching, motion picture

Fitting appt one week from now

The Quintra is the Costco select form of the Rexton Strata. It's essentially an indistinguishable thing from the Strata 2c 18.
