wow englishdispenser and um bungo you guys/ladies way off topic hee hee. I was talking about duds mine just happened to be resound. But dud none the less Topic is about phonak but doc audio brought up the dud issue.
See if I get the replacement through the appeal process TO REPLACE DUDS that failed quality control obviously. I would be able to get different aids that would be more suited to my needs like connectivity to phone directly through blue tooth with “NO HOOP” so no loss of sound as I get from t-coil or magnetic switch when close to the phone receiver. Also be able to use both ears as one which be better.
Biggest issue is finding Aid for EXTREME moisture conditions. Does phonak have one ? or do they have such a quality control issue I would be plagued with problems like am with the resounds? by the way the aid went back in to repair this afternoon. when I was talking to the tech with just the bad aid in it sounded like a low frequency base rumble voice. Very difficult to understand.
Englishdispenser Quote :" I’ve just had an amusing daydream: Corey turning up at Stafa to discuss his GN Resound hearing aid’s problems. The reaction of the Swiss-German Phonak engineer or manager would become a YouTube hit! "
Now that was actually funny because its not a direct attack on me and not really implying anything either. I give you 4 :D:D:D:D
The connection of resound to phonak was the Key words of “quality control”, “dud” Or would not have said anything about it.
I would go to the LOCAL headquarters so as not to need a passport to get there so California branch.
didn’t you know as part of good debater is when someone else is on topic and brings up something loosely connected to topic like dud loosly connected to quality control it opens a new path for side dialog that is loosely and indirectly connected to the main topic.
See doc audio was mentioning aids she had in possession as being duds, but not specify it was a phonak. Quote as follows:" I had one in the past 2 1/2 years that I had to do that for. We’d send the HA in, it would come back and work for a few weeks and then stop again. This went on for at least 7 - 8 months. Finally I kept the hearing aid in the office after the final repair and just had it sitting on my desk. After 8 days it went dead again for no reason whatsoever. Got a new HA and no problems since."
Also the other 1/2 of the Quote that did mention phonak was about the OP phonak. Not the aids, doc had in their possession as being duds. Doc audio Quote as follows:“I would suspect that it would. If you’ve had to send them in that much in 5 months, there may be something wrong with the hearing aid itself. Out of thousands/millions of hearing aids sold in a year some are bound to be ‘duds’. I’d take it back to the provider you got them from, tell them that the failure rate is unacceptable and ask them to contact Phonak for a replacement HA.”
So when doc audio had mentioned “aids” as duds and not specifying they were phonak they opened it up to other aids not necessarily being phonak thus where I came in with resound being “DUD” And what I would like to do with said “DUD”
Following is off topic rambling and remembrance of time in school. I ran circles around my class and teacher in debate. I also hope it helps you folks to understand why it seems like I am off topic at times. If I go off topic I try to indicate as such. Not everyone can follow my train of thought nor see the connection I do.
I am very very good at connection things and seeing relationship of how they fit together. As a result a lot of people think I am off topic That is why I actually state flat out I am off topic as I had done here.
Lets just say back in junior high 9th grade we had a mock trial/debate it was a trial/debate where each of us had a role to play judge, jury witnesses defendant etc. I as one of the witnesses was testifying against black defendant. the goal of the “debate” was to get the defense to catch me in a lie and prosecutor was to get me to convict the black defendant of crime he didn’t commit. My roles criteria was to purposely lie in such a way as to sound like the truth that the black person was guilty even though he wasn’t. Everyone knew my role beforehand , even the person playing the defense.
I played my role perfectly and smoothly, the defense, could NOT trip me up and catch me in a lie. Had nothing to do with lying it was about understanding the questions being asked and wording my comments to make the black person look guilty. No matter how the questions were asked. Lets just say the class got extremely lively because they could not trip me up. Funny thing is the teacher was playing the judge role. Even teacher got riled up because they couldn’t trip me up so he changed role from judge to defense and started asking me questions to try and trip me in to making a mistake that would show I was lying. Even he could not after 15 minutes of grilling me. at this point he throws his hands up, I am snickering, and as a result of not being able to trip me up to catch me lying, the black defendant was found guilty and hung. Not literally of course.
Key of why they couldn’t trip me, is comprehension level. In 11th grade, scored a first year master degree level(fifth year college level), in comprehension, when I tested out of the LD program.
