I have a ConnectClip - it is listed as a ConnectClip 1.1 when it is connected to my Apple iMac via Bluetooth. On a Window 10 PC, the Oticon Firmware update program (part of Genie II) lists the firmware as version 1.13.0 which, at least a few months ago, was current. The firmware update program connects to the ConnectClip using USB.
The above ConnectClip works fine with my OPN S 1 miniRITE hearing aids (I’ve had them for about 7 months). Prior to that I had the original OPN (1) miniRITE hearing aids and they also worked with the same ConnectClip. My ConnectClip is probably one of the original ones as I had to wait a long time to get it after I got my original OPN hearing aids about 3 1/2 years ago. The firmware has been updated by my provider at least once.
However, the hearing aid programing setup done by Genie has to include the ConnectClip and that needs to be done, in my limited experience, whenever the firmware is updated in either the hearing aids or the ConnectClip. To do that programing yourself, you need either a Noahlink Wireless or an older USB connected device with the appropriate flat cables to connect to the hearing aids. Firmware updates for the OPN hearing aids have to be done with a wired setup according to my hearing aid provider. The firmware of the ConnectClip is updated with a USB connection to the micro USB/charge port in the ConnectClip (same for the TV adapter 3). The programing of the updated OPN hearing aids can be done using the Noahlink Wireless or the wired interface after the firmware update with the wired setup.
You will probably need to forget and then pair the hearing aids with a ConnectClip (or TV adapter) after a hearing aid firmware update. You might also find it useful to remove all pairings in the ConnectClip - Press and hold the Multi-button, Volume Up AND Volume Down for 10 seconds - status LED goes BLINKING RED (page 39 of my online version of the Instructions for use book, page 37 of my printed version). Then pair with the hearing aids and only with the devices needed like a phone or computer. On the same page there is a note that only one connection works at a time but up to 8 devices can be paired. The ConnectClip will connect to the first phone/computer/device available/in range according to the book.
Good luck - these connection devices can be “fun” to configure and use. Once working, they can be useful but still frustrating at times. My ConnectClip insists on connecting to my Cisco Bluetooth VOIP phone at work instead of my computer. I have to disconnect using the phone menu system and quickly connect using the computer (Apple MacBook Pro) if I wish to use the ConnectClip to relay sound from the computer to my hearing aids. The VOIP phone sees the ConnectClip as a “headset”. At home, the ConnectClip will not work correctly with my iMac Pro unless I use a Sennheiser BTD 800 USB dongle (provided with my ConnectClip) instead of the built in Bluetooth in the computer where the built-in Bluetooth in the work Apple notebook seems to work fine. Go figure …
