Contrary to Oticon's Streamer the Soundgate 3 does not have a DAI Europort connector, only a stereo jack. This creates a problem with for me. Normally you would connect Phonak's Roger Pen to the Roger X and connect that to the bottom of your streamer. This means that I will have to make a connector female DAI 3-pin to stereo jack.
Does anyone have an idea what kind of problems I will run into? If I connect the outer pins to the stereo cable, should I give the center pin a voltage to power the Roger X connector? Should I put 330kOhm between the ground and the pin for attenuation or would that create the same problem as with Oticon: very low loudness?
*knock knock - anyone alive in here? :)
I just picked up a pair of Resound LiNX aids that have integrated BLE, and are Apple certified & integrate directly with the iPhone.
These things just scream for hacking I think. I've just played around a bit with a BLE app on my iPhone and they seem to have about 40+ characteristic (key/value) pairs, that I'm assuming have to do with programmed state - default volumes, programming, etc.
Hi there, can anyone help me with a hack so as to use my icom with a fm receiver,as the one from PHONAK (MLxi) is way to much ($1000) here in new zealand, I have the smartlink and would like to use the microphone from it through the icom to my naida's hearing aids,thanks
After many months, the Foundation I approached for financial aid, finally answered. It turned out that lost my file, so the never processed it. I guess they choosed to losen up a bit on their usual rules, since I've been waiting for a long time, as they usually don't give help to people having less than a 35 decibels loss. So I finally had my new hearing aids last thursday. I was really happy, and I admit that they were long due.
The next morning, I arrived at my job, where one of my collegue was asking about the hearing aid, but didn't quite see them as he was expecting something bigger. I didn't say it to other people, so it came much later during the day until other noticed them. After I did show them to one of my collegue, she actually laughed noticing, it's weird I didn't say ''what!?'' yet that day. It's weird to hear so much noise around me, but I try keeping the aids on. At first, I had the impression it didn't make much difference while I was watching tv, but when I remove the subtitle, and compare with them on and off, I see an important difference. But well, they still need adjustments...
One thing that will look weird at first, is that I believe I have more trouble hearing some people I could hear before. They didn't increase the frequencies I could already hear kinda well, and it might be a problem to have a mold in my hear in this case. I was at the convenience store, and could hear very clearly the sound of the fridges, but the voice of the salesperson seemed to come from the back on the room, while the guy was standing in front of me.
I will be getting the Smartlink+ this thursday, but I tried the ComPilot this week. I don't know if mine is defective, but I hear a lot of noise when using it, especially when a female is talking (including my own voice). I wish it stayed connected when the sound from the bluetooth audio source goes off. Also, it's so long to change mode (I would deal better only with the color code) and the fact you don't hear external sound when the voice menu is speaking is a bit nuisible. Do you know if the settings could be altered?

Every since my ENT doctor asked me to go for a HA, sometime back in 2010, I have been looking for HA info over the internet. Today, I am lucky to find this group.
I am from Bangalore, India and in Mid 30's, Married with two kids. (Was) Leading a active life. Now a days, it becoming very tough to lead a day to day activities due to hearing loss. My latest test shows 40% - 50% loss. There is a humming sound or the sound of fly flying always in the Ear.
I have been to various hospitals & HA clinics and have got the tests done. The doctors advise is to go for HA. The audiologist in the private HA centers always recommend HA's above 1200+$ to 2200 $per ear - which is total way out of Budget.
Bangalore has one HA clinic per manufacture (ReSound, Phonak, Seimens, Oticon, rexton, widex etc) except for panasonic who are yet to be seen in India.
I understand that I really do not fit into your your hearing-aid-hackers as of now as I still do not own any HA. But I intend to use the knowledge here to know more about after affect of buying & using HA. Thanks to you all in this forum.
I still have not closed on the brand or the type. I need a great help here. These new generation HA are complicated and confusing. Do not have clear understanding about them. Has anyone bought HA from 'www.audicus.com', how are their products? Are they recommended? found this website to be honest. There are lot of articles covering hearing loss including 'diabetes and hearing'
I would alos like to check with fellow HAH in Bangalore to get more understanding. From old post's I could find flycatcher27.
@flyCatcher27: If you are still around, can you please help me out.
