Got Phonak Naida IX SP in 2010 and the tubes from the BTE unit to the ear mold were replaced twice in last 5 years w/ explanation that they age and affect sound transmission. Audi no longer routinely services my aids or questions and I’d like to know if and how often to get the tubes changed. I guess like new cars free service provided during during warranty period then it’s pay-as-you-go. Not a problem, I guess, if this is normal but these are my first aids so I’m learning everything as I go.
i probably ought to discusss new ground rules with my Audi but not real happy here anyway and am looking for new aids (another story) so would not.
- Do I need to periodically replace the BTE to ear mold tubes?
- Any estimated time period (months, a year or ??)
- Rough estimate on cost of aid service including tubes, fitting and whatever? (So. Cal/ west of L.A. area)
