I’m generally happy with my Pure700 and the bluetooth functionality with the tek remote and tek transmitter. I’ve had these HAs (my first) for about 2 months now.
I’m trying to figure out if my problems (similar to Alias’s) are related to the iPhone or not.
If I connect my iPod (the iPod in the iPhone) to the TekRemote using the cable then everything works fine… Program 4 is reserved for the tech remote’s jack input or input from the Tek transmitter, Program 2 is reserved for the bluetooth phone link with my iPhone.
Plugging the iPod/iPhone into the TekRemote using the cable works fine but when I try to use the tek transmitter then I encounter Alias’ problems… it disconnects without warning and works intermittantly or not at all.
My audiologist changed the tek for me when I went back and explained the problem and gave me a brand new box (he subsequently sent mine in to Siemens for a replacement box). but now I’m encountering the same problems. Before I bring it back to ask him to change it again or to send it into the after sales service … I’d sort of like to understand the problem.
I think the problem might be related to the iPhone… if I switch off the bluetooth on my iPhone then the Tektransmitter seems to work without a problem… I can go from listening to the ipod and back to my general program 1 and then back to 4 without a glitch…
but of course the whole point is to be able to take a phone call too… using bluetooth (and program 2) !
interesting… I’m testing as I’m writing this… and I reactivated bluetooth on the iphone (while listening to the ipod using the tektransmitter) and now it seems to be working without a problem.
could it be a question of doing things in the right order?
a) stop the bluetooth on the iphone
b) plug in the Tektransmitter to the iphone and begin listening to the ipod on program 4
c) re-activate bluetooth on the iphone…
d) re-activate the pairing of the iphone and Tekremote by pushing the green (bottom left) button on the TekRemote for one second… so the phone icon appears on the tekremote screen.
any similar experience??? I’ll get back to the forum to tell you if this workaround keeps working.
