I really liked Squeezers suggestion or question in a different post under bluetooth. He/She asked why can’t they download updates to streamers/ha’s by simply hooking it up to your computer.
This technology could be easily done now with top of the line instruments if we could get the Hearing Aid manufacturers and Audi/dealers to cooperate. They could only allow access to the upgrades through your Audi/Hearing aid dealer’s website or with a password provided by the Audi/Dealer. The audis/hearing aid dealers should also be able to do programming of the hearing aids remotely. The audis could keep their hands in the process this way. Then problems/upgrades could easily be done by all without missing out on use of the instruments while it is being upgraded.
I think we as users need to demand these types of services. While I feel face to face meetings are necessary for new fittings and earmolds, other things like changes/upgrades can/should be available over the net without the need for face to face meetings. I am an experienced HA user of 37 years (39 years old). These sort of tasks would be very simple for me. Even some minor programming would also be fairly easy for me.
What does everyone else think?
