A funny store about this Oticon Assisted Listening Device product: We have a patient’s wife who wants him to hear her every word through his Oticon behind the ear hearing aids. She came with him to an appointment at Hears to U, Audiology and they took the Oticon ALD home with them to try with his Oticon hearing aids He heard her so well all day as she talked into the Oticon ALD, giving him instructions and a honeydew list, he came back to the clinic after a week of trying the Assisted Device and told our audiologist it didn’t work. She was so surprised and started going over the issue of why he couldn’t hear his wife through his hearing aids with the microphone activated. He looked at her and gave her a serious look. Puzzled by the look, the audiologist stopped talking and said OK I guess it doesn’t work. Apparently, the assistance to streaming with the Oticon Mic worked too well and was not the life he wanted. 😉 No one is the wiser and perhaps someday he will want to hear every word she says as she walks around with the Oticon or an assisted listening device.
