How to decorate your hearing equipment!

#1

Thought I would share that I’ve put some rainbow :rainbow: twists on my neckloop to add some colour. Just got to buy some more so I can finish it off.

The rainbow :rainbow: twists are basically USB cable protectors but I love this colour!

Why be boring when you can stand out?!?!

What were those elasticated loop things with edible hoop sweets called? They had like a fizzy sherbet taste. Reminds me of those!

I’d be tempted to chomp that! :rofl:

I don’t know if it’s the same thing, but ours were just called candy necklaces. Very creative by the way Zebras. You’re “stand out” attitude could very well be an avenue toward making hearing aids more appealing for at least some people. More power to you!

I’m just waiting for a replacement for the LEFT aid of my new Marvel 13s - it’s a bit wonky. But once I have the final working pair, I’m going to put itty bitty stickers on them (used to decorate fingernails). Can’t WAIT!

I know what you are taking about. They cost something like 10p years and years ago!

That’s my aim is to allow people to be proud and to not hide away.

I run two groups on Facebook that are all about pimping hearing aids and being proud and to not be ashamed.

Hope you don’t have to wait long for your replacement HA.

I tried nail stickers a while ago but got frustrated because I couldn’t cut around the Mics and buttons.

You’ll have to show pictures when you are finished.

@Zebras we used to pay 3 pence way back in the late 50’s early 60’s for those candy necklaces.

I WILL! I was going to use some really ITTY BITTY flower, palm tree and fish decals that I have right in my card-making stuff. They are so small (<1/8") that they would fit right on the body of my aids. They do add a “raised surface” variable to contend with … but hey! I’m going to try it. :grinning:

Thought I would show of my red hearing aid. I got it re cased and love it! I also love my other hearing aid as well.

(Side note - Reason why I’ve got UP hearing aids is because I’ve got a conductive loss only which means I require a lot of power. Even tho my loss is only moderate, I’ve maxed out the UP hearing aids as my bone conductive results are between 0 dB and -10 dB.)

How a bone conductive results are corelated with conductive loss? What if a bone conductive results are much better than conductive loss?

About what?!

Conducive losses require more gain compared to other types of losses. That’s a known fact.

Or do you mean, pimping hearing aids?

You wrote: “Even tho my loss is only moderate, I’ve maxed out the UP hearing aids as my bone conductive results are between 0 dB and -10 dB.”

I’m trying to understand this … I have much better bone conductive results than conductive loss …

I’m not sure what you mean.

My BC results are basically normal hearing. My AC results are between 30 dB and 70 dB.

Just a neckloop I got on eBay for super cheap. The rainbow coil you can see, I bought separately and put it on. The extra coil should arrive today so I can do the actual neckloop, lol.
