To the DYI-ers, how often do you actually use your programmer? Is it a few times over a month when you get a new aid, or does it take longer to tune your aids to your preference? After an initial adjustment period, do you go back and play with your settings occasionally? As a new-to-aids person, my first thoughts are that a month would be sufficient for most people. Does that seem about right?
It occurs to me that there are more forum users who’d like to do their own adjustments than who have spent that extra $3-400 to do so. So there might be a little opportunity for some enterprising do-good-er (and I don’t really want it to be me) to buy a Hi-Pro and some cables for the popular models and rent it out to others. Just to help the group, I mean. It’s not going to be a money maker, of course, but it might pay for itself in a year’s time.
I’m thinking that I’d pay $75-$100 for a month’s use of a Hi-Pro (or a FittingLink3) to get my new OPN1s in good shape. What about you? What would you pay? And is that enough time? A show of hands from prospective customers would be useful, but just as welcome would be some replies starting with “I don’t think this will work because…”
HA since 3-2017: Oticon OPN1
