Had a hearing aid that died. Got a call it was ready for pick up. My regular audiologist moved on to start her own business. I got a replacement. First he tried to tell me that my remote would not work without the neck cord as that was the antenna. (That is for using with the TV, da-a-a-a) I showed him that it would work fine at arms length to control the volume and that I did not want another cord around me neck deer hunting. His reply was that I might be better off leaving my hearing aids at home when deer hunting as the deer can hear sound up to 100 yds away and they could also hear my hearing aids ! WOW ! Time for a different audiologist I think.
