^^^ Re: the OP posts … Do you mean read the Opn posts? In any case, I had to guffaw yesterday, as my aud-guy said do NOT pull on the leash to remove my aids. He says that over time, if I just leave the leash be, it will mold into a perfect curl inside the ear. By yanking my aids out with the leash every night, I was actually undoing that molded fit. Over time, the leash just curled into a corkscrew and then I had to trim it. I got new leashes put on my aids yesterday and will leave them be.
So now I remove my Opns by pulling gently on the EARWIRE as it curves to the front of my ears - not near the mic area, not near the receiver in my ear.
