Interesting that I had just been in a conversation with someone about the fact that my Oticon OPN 1 aids were replaced 5 times over the past year and a half due to various failures. My thought is it’s moisture related when ambient humidity increases (even though I use a dryer at night provided by Oticon) even though I have never had this issue in 15 years with an other aids including previous Oticon delta 4000 / 8000, Seimens and Starkey.
I contacted the HearStore to see what their pricing would be on the new OPN S and they wrote back and said they were discontinued due to reliability issues and too many failures and returns for service.
I then contacted an audi in Indiana whom I had seen for one of those replacements while working out of town last summer as I liked their practice to see what her prices would be and she advised that they have now stopped selling Oticon for the same reason.
Is something going on we aren’t being informed of?
I did ultimately order them via Amplifon for delivery next week so we shall see what happens.
