^^^^ That IS interesting! The ziplock baggie that actually WORKS on a CI. I wonder if I could jerry-rig something similar for my Oticon OPNs? I wear them half the time; the other half of the time I’m still wearing my old Oticon Agil Pro ITE aids.
airnbau: thanks for that link to the Japanese aids. GEEZ, I was in Japan for a couple weeks in May and I sure would’ve checked this out had I had a glimmer of an idea where to go, who to see and how to translate my needs into Japanese!
This waterproofing should not be rocket science. For years I did use a “waterproof” container: shaped like a cylinder, hung around my neck, my aids inside a ziplock baggie inside that container - which also had rubber gaskets on the seal. But one fine day, when I opened the container, the ziplock had moisture on it. So - at $6K for an investment, I just thought I better leave the aids behind. When snorkeling in HI it’s not a good idea to leave aids in a burning hot car tho! Also, there is a fair amount of car break-ins for haolies in places. That also gave me pause leaving my aids in the car. And to leave them on the beach in a backpack? I may as well leave a thick stack of $100’s!
