LOL JustEd, I can relate to the streamer necklace boondoggle. HAPPY as I am to have one - and I even travel with my necklace streamer - it is a cludge. Boggles my mind how audio can’t stream wirelessly into our aids RIGHT NOW. I’m sure the technology is there, the demand is there, and the future growth market is also there. That said, I am ever so grateful for that clunky streamer necklace every time I get on the phone with Anthem, or make travel arrangements, or call Wells Fargo VISA, or ANY/ALL call center service calls to any point on the globe.
I had to guffaw when my aud-guy asked if I was interested in the keychain remote control unit that comes with Widex Unique aids. Yeah, like I’m gonna go all over town, to parties, concerts, go shopping, sit in my house all day, entertain friends, yada yada and be clutching some dang KEY RING with the remote dangling from it? Where do these manufacturers come up with these ideas? I may as well wear a colorful beanie copter on my head and spin the propeller to change programs or turn volume UP/DOWN on my aids. Feh.
