    I'm in the west Puget sound area across the water from Seattle.

    I did happen to pop into the Costco in Santa Clarita (a little NE of Burbank) a month or so ago and they actually have a full blown audiologist (AuD) on staff. This was right after I had my first fitting and I needed a tweak but she didn't have any time available. If you're near there you might try her out.

    I have tried Rexton Quintras with double dome and quite like the sound but have ended up returning it since it was less clear than my old Epoq. However, I have tried Oticon Alta with ear mold and also with double dome. I found out that the sound was much better with ear mold than double dome. I am wondering if I try Rexton Quintra with ear mold, will the sound be much better than with double dome? Anyone can give me idea so that I can save one thousand dollar.

    It depends on your hearing loss and the size of your ear canals. Can you post your audiogram values? Perhaps the double domes weren't a good fit and you had lots of leakage. You can get a tighter seal with custom earmolds.

    My audiogram is about this:
    250 500 1K 2K 4K 8K
    50 60 55 65 65 70

    Left and right ears have about the same loss
    I think my ear canal is small.

    I have worn the Quintras for 2 weeks and so far have not found any reason for adjustments, I can hear conversations in noisy environments and speech is heard well from people talking behind me. The three programs are auto, noise, and TV. I find the auto program works well in most situations. I will use TV for a few shows but is generally not needed. The auto p;program must work in loud places because I do not notice any difference when switching to that program. I originally was going to buy the KS5 but some comments posted said the sound wasn't to their liking. I figured the additional cost for top of the line aids was worth it and didn't want to make a change.

    Can you give an update on your Quintra HA? My mom is getting ready to get replacement aids and I'm curious about those.

    I have been using Quintra 2c for 70 days now. I like them a lot, they are as good as Siemens Micon Pure 7 and cost about half. However, given that I am still within the 90 days Costco trial period, I am planning to demo the Phonak Brio in the next couple of weeks.

    I have dicided to keep mine. I think they are confortable and work real well for me. Mine use the 312 size batteries and they are plenty small for me. Batteries last me over a week, since I change them out Sunday nites whether they need it or not. Cheap. I feel this is the right size for me. Smaller HAs feel like they might fall off. I feel I could do better in speech recognition but I have not gone back for my 2nd adjustment. I need to make a list of any shortcomings, which are very few. I'm happy. Would buy again. I have had them for around 5 months.

    My rechargeable 312 batteries only last about 14 hours so by the time for prime time TV they are running out of power. I wonder if I should just use the regular batteries as they are pretty inexpensive at Costco.

    Just picked mine up today. There are some sounds that has this weird doubling effect (reverb or echo?) like my own voice, or a high pitch noise.
    I demoed the ks5s briefly and it did not have this problem.
    anyone else has this problem?
