Hello, as some of you may know from another thread, I have begun researching this HA for myself,
I in fact have gotten one price from one online seller of HAs, and the price seems fair, and perhaps better than a walk in purchase, but there are still a few unanswered questions that I’ll have to take up with the seller, and if there’s any influence on the price quote they gave me? Such as whether the price they gave me was for the 3mi or 7mi model?
But, I believe I found some further important information about this particular model of ITC aid that is disappointing. In that this ITC HA has no provision for remote control adjustments of volume, or programs.
I assume this is correct, that no device apparently will remotely control these HAs. That only the BTE of this model has such remote control capabilities.
Thus, with a possible ommittance of such adjustment features, that would IMO severly restrict any modern versatility of these HAs, and that I of course would like some form of manual adjustment features. What good is 6 programs then, if a user cannot manually switch them?
I see a volume dial, and program button pictured at Siemen’s site. Not sure if those are standard, or options, and again, I’m not sure of the addition of these adjusting buttons-dials has an influence on the pricing they gave me?
I’m learning not to assume anything, and I surely don’t want any unpleasant surprises should I order these under any circumstances.
