Pat, I have a pair of the Siemens Motion MPX rechargeable aids that originally cost about £3.5k. My cost was less than £600 as they were 18 months old.
The rechargeable batteries are very expensive and a pain to keep plugging them in when regular batteries are so cheap online and carrying spares is easy.
They have the very small micro tubes but somehow don't have the volume of my other Oticom aids which have the larger tubes and proper ear plugs.

Just found another use for PTFE tape.

As and when the hearing aids start to whistle it's often because the shape of our ears changes over time and the plugs don't fit snugly.
While I'm waiting for a visit to the aids shop to have a new mould created, I found wrapping some PTFE tape round the body of the mould can seal the leak.

OK not everyone's lunchtime reading material but might help someone.

I was sent for a hearing exam at the local hospital, it's run by Specsavers staff, they confirmed I had tinnitus and gave me a pair of aids, they were way too sensitive for me so they went into a drawer, liz is always asking me what someone said on TV, I have the volume down low too.


I don't understand how putting more noise in my head would help with tinnitus.

Kev, I think the word they use is "masking".

They made no difference other than they amplified every other sound, incredibly annoying, I think we may have binned them when we moved.

Are you aiming for the national collection of hearing aids, Ray?

You can't have too many Chris. Always travel with a spare just in case. Without one life becomes very difficult.
