I have had Costco’s Resound Futures for about two weeks now. I love all the new hig frequency sounds I am hearing again for the first time in years. It’s spring and all the birds are talking to me! I also like the promise of the Futures being waterproof, thoough I am not eager to test that out.
I only have one problem, which may make me return them. The in-ear receiver doesn’t seem to lock into the actual hearing aid in a reliable way. I have taken it back twice and once they exchanged one whole hearing aid and receiver. They said it was a known manufacturing defect in the unit. Subsequently the receiver came loose again and they reinstalled it yesterday. It seems okay today, but I’ll keep checking it. It makes me paranoid because the expensive part, the actual hearing aid, is only held in place by the receiver unit in my ear, so if it comes separated I am likely to lose it.
Has anyone else had a problem with the receiver coming loose on a Future? Does the Bernafon receiver lock in better?
Also, is the waterproof thing really a big deal?
