I purchased my Pair of Oticon OPN’s 1 in december… My current workplace/family situation demands me to quite often to move between Europe/USA.
As a experienced HI user, i have chosen to go down the semi DIY Path.
I bought the fittinglink 3.0 from my local audi, including the desk stand. Also i have a (Pretty slow and useless) Noah link, that allows me to have a cabled connection to my HI.
The fittinglink 3.0 is very easy to use. I always use it placed in the desk stand, putting it directly into the usb port of my laptop seems to affect range. Possibly because of the vertical/horisontal placement.
Placed in the desk stand, the range is quite good 7-10 meters.
I use sound from my TV and Stereo to evaluate my adjustements in genie 2.0, and it is quite liberating to be able to move freely around while i am both adjusting and listening.
While using the cabled connection (Noah link/cs44 flexconnect) i get a lot of noise from the flexconnects, and i often have problems with placing them correctly. Also, the flexconnectors are fragile and expensive…
The fittinglinl 3.0 works perfectly for its purpose, easy fitting and adjustements.
Downsides: you still need a cabled connection for firmware upgrades & the price (300 USD ) is Insane…
