kbrick01 I am utilizing the Widex MDex Bluetooth connector with both my iPhone and after that with my work area telephone, an Avaya 9600. It woks immaculately with both, aside from that the iPhone removes if there is any development of the MDex. I have attempted Apple and AT& T, however they are not useful, and I can't locate a specialized CS number for Widex. I am likewise attempting to utilize a BT "dongle" on my Toshiba tablet to attempt the MDex on the Avaya 1x Softphone, however can't discover drivers for it that my portable PC says it needs. Any recommendations for that or the BT issue with the iPhone? Thx!

smc Something that might be useful for any individual who experiences difficulty hearing telephone discussions. I as of late purchased Panasonic cordless telephones for my home that have bluetooth capacities trusting I could snare my m-dex for my reasonable 440's to it and have house calls come specifically to my portable amplifiers. I discovered I could bluetooth my cellphone (Motorola atrix) to the panasonics and afterward bluetooth the m-dex to my mobile phone and it worked quite well. At the point when my home telephone rang it experienced my PDA too and I at that point could get the call and chat utilizing the m-dex. In any case, I couldn't do what I truly needed to do which was to snare the m-dex straightforwardly to the panasonics and it just worked through my mobile phone.

iblaineman Is 7K a decent cost for the Widex Clear 440s?

iblaineman I attempted the TV connection and it's truly pleasant. to awful the bluetoost doesn't sound the as great. So far I just attempted it with my PC and music. I concur with some others that the strap is to long and you free association.

smc Seanchaun,

I didn't utilize your guides, yet I used the Phonak Smart 9's which are the highest point of the line. For me (I have a level hearing misfortune) the clears or the interests are greatly improved in clamor, with the clears being superior to the interests.

seanchuan hi, I have direct high recurrence hearing misfortune. I'm presently wearing a phonak exeliar expressions, which is fundamentally great with the exception of in a boisterous domain. So my audi prescribed widex energy 440s which cases to be working superior to phonak exeliar expressions in boisterous condition. It would appear that loads of people here prescribe widex clear 440. I'm pondering any of you has had an opportunity to contrast widex clear 440 and phonak exeliar expressions?

smc I have now utilized the unmistakable 440's for over seven days. 1) Absolutely extraordinary in commotion. I work in an acoustically difficult condition and for me the enthusiasm 440's I was utilizing were the best of 3 first class marks I tried(agil professionals and phonak keen 9's) The clears are vastly improved than the interests. While I could hear somebody talking specifically to me, I used to experience difficulty hearing discussions between individuals that were going on 4-6 feet away. Presently I am by all accounts ready to hear them much better at this point. I likewise hear the overhead paging speakers much better. I went to a remarkably uproarious eatery the previous evening and could hear everything said at the table. 2) The bluetooth phone association functions admirably however seems to deplete the M-dex's battery rather rapidly. After a couple of calls the battery went to half quality. 3) I can hear TV's vastly improved with these than the interests. 4) In my auto I can hear music much clearer and at bring down sound settings than with the interests. 5) Regular phone is an issue, as with the interests, it is difficult to get the recipient up near the guide and it doesn't appear to be greatly improved than listening straightforwardly to the beneficiary with my ear. 6) The sound directional capacity works, yet just pitifully and appears to just give a negligible advantage. 7) Unfortunately one of the guides accompanied a faulty beneficiary with bring down volumes in one ear, that I didn't understand until the following day. That was effortlessly settled by my audi, however somewhat of a bother requiring a unique visit.

So in conclusion I feel the clears speak to a huge change over the interests, and I am unquestionably hearing better with them and it is more similar to common sound than any listening device I have utilized some time recently. (In the event that makers can continue enhancing listening devices as they did here, the up and coming era of helps in a couple of years ought to be astounding)

Olemax If you will educate your Audi concerning the issues with noisy commotions, he/she can make some straightforward program changes in accordance with redress this. I had minor indications and my Audi made the amendments on my first followup.

Additionally: The range from the M Dex control capacities is genuinely great, around 3 ft. The Range for sound from the control to the HAs is exceptionally constrained, around 10 inches, and subject to impedance, for example, when one's head or body obstructs the immediate way of the flag.

EnglishDispenser >> After care at that cost may not be what you anticipate

Suppose that you need to pay £30 per aftercare visit.

It will take a LOT of visits to refute the £3000 sparing you have made!

Why give the gadget £2000+ for visits you will never utilize?

iblaineman Oh I see however the handling is the same. I have stopped a touch of sound section I think about whether it is the programming/preparing or would the combinations would fit better.

Iblaineman,

As per the Widex site the combinations can be utilized for more significant hearing misfortune than the other RITE clears. They additionally utilize a 312 battery as opposed to the 10 measure the clears utilize and give off an impression of being marginally bigger. The combination has a telecoil inherent and as per the manual has a program catch on it. here are the connections: http://www.widex.com/en/newsroom/2011/combination/http://www.widex.com/WebFiles/9%2051...01%20%2001.pdf

iblaineman What is the contrast between the reasonable 440s and the unmistakable 440 combination?

smc Just got my Widex clear 440 RIC's today supplanting my Widex enthusiasm 440's. Here are my perceptions. The reasonable guides are an indistinguishable shape and size from the interests. The sound is by all accounts somewhat preferable with the clears over the interests and both at any rate to my observation, create genuinely practical sound multiplication. I am hearing more foundation clamors with the clears that I couldn't hear with the passions(air conditioners, fans and so forth.) however it doesn't seem to meddle with hearing voices. I truly couldn't hear the TV in my home at ordinary volumes with the interests and needed to dependably utilize earphones. With the clears I can sit facilitate away and at volumes my family ordinarily utilizes really hear the TV beautiful well.(although to be straightforward the earphones still solid better). The interests were great in clamor yet the clears might be better. I went out today around evening time to an exceptionally boisterous eatery, and it appeared that I could really hear superior to my significant other (who has ears like a feline) yet required a couple of things rehashed to her because of the clamor levels. The M-dex (2 crawls by 4 inches) is greater than the enthusiasm remote however has more capacities. I was a little frustrated it didn't accompany a cowhide defensive cover like the energy remote which could likewise be cut to a belt or jeans stash for simple get to. The M-dex comes with a connection so you can wear it around your neck on the off chance that you wish. The bluetooth was genuinely simple to interface with my mobile phone. Pushing a catch on the m-dex exchanges the call to the guides which worked pleasantly. The M-dex has a mouthpiece on it when you talk. Individuals I addressed from my auto said my voice from the m-dex receiver sitting close to my apparatus move sounded clearer than the manufacturing plant introduced Bluetooth mouthpiece in my auto did. Instead of a few posts I have perused, I could change settings utilizing the M-dex at a careful distance and it didn't should be correct near the guides themselves. Different settings-I can hear voices preferable with these over the interests when utilizing the solace setting, which is an incredible setting for loud avenues. The Zen setting is obviously not accessible yet in the US. The directionally work works to some degree however it is as yet indistinct how valuable it will truly be. The TV setting is as irritating with the clears as with the interests creating exceptionally tinny piercing clamors. Utilizing the forward directional setting when sitting in front of the TV may be a superior decision for a great many people. The Music setting is like the interests which I trust builds bass and decreases commotion concealment. At long last there is a telephone setting that expands sound in one ear and decreases it in the other. An entirely decent first day, however the enormous test comes at work. I will report in half a month on the off chance that I have any new remarks or perceptions to make in the wake of utilizing them longer.

iblaineman I took a stab at blending the m-dex in windows 7 yet simply get an exlcamation and seems as though it needs drivers.

garydhooper Using both Bluetooth and earphone link associations with the MDEX I get sound in both ears. I can't affirm however in the event that it is stereo however - could be a similar mono sent to every ear.

iblaineman is the M-dex in stereo? I attempted Bluetooth and link associated however I don't get stereo?

iblaineman I am attempting a couple of clear 440s and it appears like noisy clamors trouble the guides like cruisers and transports and even the entryway shutting toll on the tram cause mutilation regardless of the possibility that I cut back the volume to low levels I hear it. It nearly seems like a speaker is broken however it's not since I changed speakers and helps. I have attempted these and invest a truly short energy with dexterous geniuses both offer better hearing outcomes then my Oticon delta yet I think it needs to do with volume all the more at that point preparing.

Sadly, there doesn't give off an impression of being an approach to turn the beeping off in the M-DEX each time bluetooth associates or separates - its settings alternatives are exceptionally restricted.

By and by I feel that the remote availability of these guides is an awesome component however is truly limited by the unbelievably short range from the M-DEX/TV-DEX recipient to the guides themselves. Notwithstanding wearing the beneficiary high up on my chest I can lose network on one or both ears when I dismiss my head. (Perhaps the association is being obstructed by my head.) I found that it wears the recipient behind my head as opposed to in-front yet that isn't generally commonsense or agreeable.

On the off chance that the range from collector to helps was only somewhat more/more dependable then the remote components on these guides would be awesome.

I began trialing the c4-m clear band demonstrate a couple of days back. With respect to a customary, corded telephone, in the event that you put the MDEX into the telecoil mode, you can put the headset recipient straightforwardly onto the MDEX remote, and it pipes the telephone into both guides. I trust the amplifier in the remote at that point grabs your voice. It appeared somewhat irregular to use at to start with, however I really think that its significantly less demanding to chat on a landline telephone thusly, instead of putting the telephone to my ear. It's disillusioning that I can't hear also holding the telephone to my ear. I am supplanting an arrangement of Passion 115's, and I could hear well on a landline (yet not a cell phone) with them.

I'm finding that following a couple of days, I'm modifying admirably to the distinction in sound handling. Regardless i'm feeling like foundation clamor can overpower nearer sounds, and in boisterous situations, I am losing discourse as it sounds like it's "cut-out" or cutting off. I have a follow up one week from now, so ideally this can be balanced. I'm utilizing custom ear shells with these thin-tube models, as I've never had much accomplishment with the bland vaults.

I'm interested to hear what others' criticism is on these!

I'm searching for the catch !

£6,000 is a high cost to pay for these guides. I got mine from a decent audiologist in focal London for £4,000 for the combine and that incorporated the remote, TV-DEX and M-DEX.

Olemax I picked the Clear 440 depends on 1) research of heaps of makes and models for highlights, and as much dependability information (less dissensions) as I could mine.

2) recommedation of my Audiologist. These have highlights that best meet my way of life, including the remote control, Bluetooth, and miniaturized scale estimate.

Presently these work incredibly well with the Bluetooth, not all that well with standard telephone beneficiary, as I would see it. The endorsed strategy for utilizing a general telephone is to hold the beneficiary over the ear (HA) at a slight point, so that the telephone is perceptibly connected to the HA.

For persistent use with a standard, corded (work area) telephone, I would propose getting a work area set with a Bluetooth transmitter, or one with an outside speaker jack that associates with the M-Dex (remote). The wired set would not deplete the M-Dex battery so rapidly, but rather it constrains your range, and the rope could be an obstacle to exercises.

One other disadvantage is that the range from the remote to the HA's is extremely constrained, around 10" +/ - , so you need to utilize the neck cord to keep it in extend. I would expect a change in this with the people to come.

Best Regards,

Olemax

sbianco Can you disclose to me any more about the Clear's 440 and how you chose, I'm torn between the Orticon Agil Pro's and the Clear FS. How would they truly function with the bluetooth? Is it worth the cash? Shouldn't something be said about a conventional corded telephone? I work in a very office condition and keen on anything you need to state. Much obliged

Additionally what the innovation age of the Clears contrasted with the Agil. Since I purchase HA each 3-4 years might want to have the most recent innovation

Olemax I am currently in a couple of Clear 440's (RIC) with M-Dex Remote, with around 3 weeks utilize. Love-em, however a few issues. aces extraordinary clearness , programmed changes act as publicized, directional projects (center front, raise, left, right) work exceptionally well. Clamor pay works exceptionally well. Bluetooth include works exceptionally well while on a call. Can kill the receivers if in a boisterous range, permitting just the telephone to come through. Music exchanges to the HA's through Bluetooth from telephone with uncommon sound quality. cons-Bluetooth (BT) work does not have some adjusting.

The main arrangement recognized so far is to kill BT, or kill the M-Dex, aside from when chatting on the cell.

Generally, a truly pleasant setup with awesome sound, contrasted with my past Widex Passions, which are a ridiculously decent arrangement of HA's.

Greetings Trevor,

A portion of the sites (not all) will pass your points of interest to a distributor in their system and they may not apportion Widex hence change pitch you to something else. After care at that cost may not be what you expect but rather not the greater part of the sites work that way. Why not contact Widex UK to check whether they can give you a rundown of independents in your general vicinity that apportion Clear.

Soonerman42 Burnabybill it might be ideal in the event that you will post your listening ability misfortune numbers/comes about.

burnabybill I just began a trial of the Widex Clear 330. It incorporates the Zen program for veiling tinnitus and furthermore connects with the DEX remote gadgets. This is my fourth portable amplifier and by a long shot the BEST. Indeed, even following one day I can tell that it is great. BEST normal sounding discourse of any I have ever worn. Yahoo to Widex!!

Lynn Hi,

I had a couple of Widex Senso Divas from 2005. Hearing weakened and the Sensos' couldn't be changed in accordance with give me great hearing. I began the way toward taking a gander at overhauls in Dec. of a year ago.

I am trialing a couple of Widex Clear 440 Fusion's (5 days now). I had an arrangement of Mind 440s and am doing the examination.

Combinations have custom hard tip earmolds, RIC.

I like them and truly like the remote adjust to mobile phone. haven'y set up the landline yet expect comparable incredible outcomes. I generally battled with the cellphone so this is a genuine in addition to.

I preferred the Comfort program for tuning in to radio while driving.

I am having some issue with charging M-Dex battery (act out is dead) and TV - dex not yet working (no association) but rather anticipate that these developing agonies will be redressed with following visit.

I didn't attempt some other brand of HAs.

Good fortunes to you.

Lynn

Rick_H My Audiologist simply sent me a leaflet on the Widex Clear 440 (in Canada). They look fascinating. My first guides were Widex Cameos (around 15 years) and were great at the time.
