The last time I was in the Costco Hearing Aid department for a new neck strap, they gave me the booty for free. I was on my 2nd Smart Connect, this one supposedly does a better job of sealing out perspiration, but apparently not good enough, because now they are givng out the booties.
If you wear your Smart Connect under your shirt, you probably need it. That’s especially true if you spend time in the hot outdoors or otherwise perspire a lot.
But there are some drawbacks-
- It covers the charging jack and audio input jack. Both of these must be carefully cut out with an Xacto type hobby knife.
- It makes the volume buttons more difficult to press, especially when attempting to press both at once to mute tjhe mics.
- It makes the Smart Connect noticably larger.
None of these problems are as bad as shorting out your Smart Connect with a bunch of sweat. So it’s worth it.
