As of 8/16/19 I’m a week into Oticon OPN 1s with the ConnectClip. I have mastered use of the IPhone paired to the hearing aids, but want the convenience of total hands-free talking. I had that option in the “streamer” devices I’ve worn for the last two sets of hearing aids, and the sound quality was good.
I’ve read some roughly 18-month-old posts about issues with the ConnectClip and the IPhone. Mine’s a 6s. I tried to use the ConnectClip for a call today and the sound quality on both ends was abysmal. It was tolerable just using the microphone on the IPhone.
Can anyone give me a layman’s explanation as to what is going on and how it can be set right? I still have about five weeks of trial period with these things (the rechargeable version with built-in battery). For background purposes, I do not stream music, television, or anything other than phone calls. This is not a show stopper, but if it worked with the loop antenna, I’m disappointed it’s not working as well with newer technology. I hate not having both hands free to take notes or to be able to walk around while talking and not having to hold the phone. Picky, picky, picky.
Any help appreciated.
