I have experienced hearing loss (Severe +) since about 2004, I am getting my FIRST BRAND NEW PAIR of Bernafon Xtremes. As a VERY VERY poor graduate student and a very active individual outdoors I am looking for some type of full coverage insurance that could replace or repair these expensive babies for me in the VERY LIKLEY case that I break them or loose them. Anyone experience a good deal out there?
My last pair of Oticons were great until the right one broke (I was backpackign) and then the left one started dying (recently), I did not have them insured anyway so $3K smackers later…!
Anyone else out there do allot of outdoors activities with theirs? Any good suggestions in keeping them alive!? I do alot of climbing (ice and rock), kiteboarding, hiking/backpacking, Skijoring/bikjoring and the like. I am a Bird watching guide and visit very humid and wet environments OFTEN.
Currently I use them only when I need when active and keep them in a shock proof, waterproof Pelican case although, and especially, when I am Birding or other I really need to be using them to hear other people/clients. Anyway just throwing it out there.
