I got my Oticon OPN 3 last week (need two but only had $ for one right now) through hearingrevolution.com and I gotta say, I am pretty happy! So far I’d say I hear as well or slightly better with these than with my Oticon Intigas from yesteryear. As I’ve said before, I’m pretty easy to please, but I have ONE major pet-peeve.
Today my low battery indicator started going off. It goes off every 10 minutes on the dot. I would LOVE for that to be a little less frequent. Does anyone know if this feature is user- or audi-adjustable (say, to maybe every hour instead of every 10 minutes?)
And yes, I do know that I could just change the battery when I hear the warning. I don’t see any compelling reason to waste battery life (it’s been sounding every 10 minutes for about 6 hours and still working fine). It’s not really about money, it’s about wastefulness. I already feel wasteful tossing out two batteries every 5-7 days every day for the rest of my life, 6+ hours * 2 * 52 weeks in a year, etc., really adds up (in my mind). I am considering the rechargeable kit but I’m saving money to buy the 2nd aid first, then the ConnectClip (which I need for work and dance), and then the rechargeable kit. (Like most I think, no help from insurance so it’s all out of pocket.) I just want to know if the low battery indicator timing can be adjusted.
Thanks, as always!
