As the title says, I lost one of my hearing aids!!
A couple of days ago I did a lot of running around. When driving the Unite Phone Clip picks up too much road noise and people complain that they can not hear me. So if I have to talk while driving I tend to remove the hearing aids and use a corded headset.
I did this on that day and put the hearing aids on the console. When I got to my destination I got out and left them on the console. Later that day when I went to go look for them, I could only find one. I have torn my truck apart looking for it. Pulled out all of the napkins and dried up french fries from under the seats. Could not find it. Thinking it fell out when I got out. Looked around the parking lot where I was parked and could not find it. We have had lots of high wind and the landscape crew comes by several times a week to get rid of leaves so it may have been blown away.
I thought I was lucky in that Beltone gave me a Loss and Damage Replacement Warranty. Did not read the fine print enough, there is a $500 deductible for the replacement. I am betting that just about covers the entire wholesale cost of the hearing aid!! Guess it could be worse and I would have to pay the entire retail price for the replacement.
So, anyone have similar stories to share? How do you safely store your hearing aids when not at home? If you use the ReSound Unite Accessories, how do you handle phone calls while driving?
