    Not a matter of bullying

    Requesting a new thread is not a matter of bullying; it's a matter of trying to keep the forum usable. Infinitely long threads are really difficult to find things in.

    KS7 is only available in RIC. From what I can tell, the Rexton Legato is available in BTE (but not RIC) and some sort of in the ear aid. Pure speculation, but I'm guessing like to keep the KS7...

    Hmm. Now I'm not sure. Connexx calls it on/off function. However the mute button on the smart phone app makes the same chimes as when I use the "on/off" function so you may very well be right.
