    I will try to get new one.

    They should order me new one because i must send my Icom for RMA. I get red light after 3 h directly from charger (switched off under charging) and unpaired with phone. After 3:30 h Icom freeze . So i switch it off and on again and it lasted 15 more minutes.... I repeated test with same results. Its 20-30% below phonak claim and its too much for such expensive item.

    The com-Pilot looks like a good idea, but recently I'm coming around to the opinion that neck-worn devices are going to become increasingly redundant as more of the technology gets shifted inside the hearing aid.

    In terms of the paradigm, it seems like the Resound Alera is a street ahead here. I appreciate the sound is possibly a fraction lower quality than the higher speed/power neck worn links, but that is likely to improve with both hardware and software improvements.

    After the disaster of fitting the Resound Be, I almost didn't give the Alera a proper chance; in fairness, it does a pretty good job.

    They told me they will not order it till summer 2012. They want to sell old stocks of Icoms.
    I'm thinking about money back and try my luck in Italy or other country.
    I get spice's in 8. month this year and they didn't put them in sale because selling stock of cores. When i told them i would not accept old technology - spice or nothing they decided that they will sell it to me.

    Could some audi tell me when compilot will that be avaiable in America or England?

    i like freedom. I even liked streamer ability to leave neckloop at home and still be able to take it from pocket and talk in it directly close to your mouth.
    With icom i dont know where to put it if i don't want to wear it around my neck. In jeans pocket? Recipe for disaster with no detachable neckloop.

    Copilot didn't follow that trend and i must have wire with me - sure i can remove it, but its still that fragile little wire in my pocket... If it wont cost 200$ for repair (audi told me that much for neckloop replacement) it wont be big deal.

    It would be superb if bt hardware was in the aid, but seeing how much that thing eat battery on streaming devices and they have big lithium battery (i-com get warm after hour of bt streaming, but ice cold when audio cable is used for 8 h). That thing eat battery, and two way communication on 10 m from little 312 battery and antena is to far fetched. A few more years, i supose.

    There is comparison.

    So what we get? Ipilot functions integrated, a bit more weight and size (i am not sure about 10 mm thicknes for icom, i think its thicker - its same thicknes for both) and better battery.

    Also there is detachable neckloop cable (in two size) so it will be cheaper for replace and doable in audi office (no sending to phonak anymore). Remote functions doesn't need loop.

    Don't know if it phone, but i had on my previous nokia say caller name and it was great on oticon streamer. Streamer unlike Icom pass whatever ringtone you sellected to headsed so i heard who call me. Now its integrated in compilot, so if phone send caller id to headset, compilot will read it.
