    One can also use manual setup to go in and label programs. Learned this today while at Costco. Not sure if it initially has to be done via barcode or not. Did require me pick a performance level on the directional microphone setting.

    I like my new KS7's, and the app works well. I only have 2 complaints about the local Costco where I purchased them from;
    First audiologist had no technical knowledge, insisted that the microphones were physically turned by the various app programs and that the connection between my iphone and the HA was via bluetooth connection..
    Second audiologist was also insistent that the connection between my iPhone and the HA was over bluetooth protocol..

    I assume you have the necklace unit and it is Bluetooth and does communicates with the iPhone using that protocol. That is the only way to communicate with any smart phone.

    Depends on what is meant by "communicate." Android smart phones and I assume Apple phones send sonic signals (high pitched beeps) from the phone to the KS7s. This is mediated by the Connexx Smart Remote App. There is also a Connex Smart Connect for the necklace unit. That does use bluetooth.

    And they are different apps.

    "Smart Remote" is the phone to hearing aid app.
    "Smart Connect" is for the gizmo of the same name.
