Yes, and sometimes they can give you a discount, depending on their connection to the company. Jim

Do you get the comPilot through your audiologist?

Best regards,

I talked to my technician at House Ear institute here in LA, and he said, that as long as you keep your hearing aids up, that is, make sure you keep the maintenance of them up, that they will be good for many years. The ComPilot made replacing, but at $300, you can save up for that if necessary. I have had mine now for three years, and love it. Jim

I understand that, Jim, and the thing that is a problem is that within six years or so, we'll probably be told that we need new ones.

Best regards,

Carolyn

It's in the email. But I'll say again. The hearing aids ran approximately $6000. I saved up a long time to get them. Jim

I hate to ask, but how much did your high-end blutoot-enabled Phonak hearing aids cost?

Carolyn, I use my IPhone with my bluetooth hearing aids, but you need
something else to do that. I have a ComPilot. It is small, and what it
does is direct the phone call from your IPhone to your hearing aids.
But... you have to have the right kind of hearing aid to do that. I
have a brand called Phonak. And, you have to have their high end
hearing aid to use the ComPilot. The ComPilot can also be used to
direct TV shows to your hearing aid directly. So, you hear the show at
your volume you want, and whoever is watching TV with you can have the
volume set the way they want. My hearing aids cost approximately
$6000, and the ComPilot about $300. There is also a microphone you can
get for the ComPilot that helps you in places like stores, and
restaurants. If you are with someone, they can wear the microphone,
and you hear what they are saying very clearly. This helps in crowds
etc. Anyway, if you want more info, write me off list if you like, or
just answer here. Hope this helps. Jim

Do any of you know if it is going to be possible to use Blue Tooth
with Blue Tooth capable hearing aids for my phone calls, and there not
be a conflict with VoiceOver? When we worked with it some yesterday at
the audiologist's, there seemed to be conflict. I think I have heard
about people using it though. I would not be streaming music.

If you pray, don't worry; if you worry, don't pray,
