Your remark about "running around" was interesting because I thought of doing just that before my 90 day return policy expires.
However, after testing twice with my hospital hearing aid department -2009/3013 - I just went back today for my 3rd review with the Liberty audiologist. I also spent time with another Hearing Specialist, not an audiologist. He monitors for wax buildup. Hearing aids were initially installed by the hospital 2009 but returned/refunded as inappropriate and not user friendly. Actually, horrible.
In the event I'm approached with a "free test" offer, I might still take the time to investigate. Lots of money involved here.
Today, we compared the hospital graphs and they were almost identical to Liberty, albeit an additional loss in one ear. Large problem for me has been not hearing consonants, only vowels. This seems to no long be an issue.
I like that I can be programed for the Loop system and telephones, and the easy noisy backgrounds button comes in handy in restaurants. In addition, I was concerned about the hot day moisture while working outside. It appears the Nano technology is doing it's job.
I'm still enjoying the ball games, no feedback or exaggerated screeching. I am carefully checking off the proclamations in the following website, addressing each one I feel I may not be receiving, and hanging in with my 90 day return policy. So far, so good. One year, same as cash is a nice benefit. Nothing ventured, nothing gained.
