    You should download the Oticon ON app for Android phones. This app will allow you to increase the volume on your HAs remotely via the phone to help compensate for the lower volume of the Ooma phone or of the headset. It's much more convenient than trying to increase the volume by messing around with the button on your right HA, while holding a handset or wearing a headset that is in the way.

    My headset volume sometimes is low, sometimes is OK. When low volume, I use the On app to increase the volume. Very easy and effective.

It's just curious that I never seem to let the Opn get to warning beep, cuz I can tell they are just not amplifying sound like they do with fresh batts. (or am I just crazy?) So far, I am going like SEVEN days between battery changes, but then the only streaming I do is for maybe 2-3 hours a night with the TV streamer.
    My TV Streamer gets flaky on low HA batteries, too. It actually stops pairing with the HA.

    I usually don't notice a slight volume reduction when my battery goes low. I usually get the low battery warning chime first. But I notice that you have pretty heavy hearing loss in the mid range, so maybe that's why your HAs are more sensitive to low batteries, because the receiver probably uses more battery juice trying to pump out sounds in the mid-range.

    7 days between battery changes is very good. I get about 4.5 days on mine. But I may use streaming a little bit longer than you do.

    I get about 4-5 days depending on streaming, do you guys accept that? At the end of the day it is okay... however a size 13 battery would be more convenient for me. Still get no Info on when and if a size 13 will come out soon....

    Based on users' feedbacks from the other threads on this forum, that seems to be about the average, 4-5 days. I'm seeing the same thing. And yes, more streaming would suck up more juice faster, based on my observation, too.

    How many hours in your day?

    Yep, the faster you drive the more gasoline you use.. So, the faster you drive the CPU with streaming the more battery you use.

    yeah guys, I'm just ranting because of the lack of a size 13 version, how long does it have to take, it's nearly 6 months now since the 312 came out, I want 13

    I may sound *paRaNoiD!* but I will simply never use anything on the IFTTT. Trading off personal security & privacy for easy access to unrelated apps just sits like an icy chill of Big Bro on my shoulders. I'll gladly wait for any kind of clip-on streamer or just use my old Agil Pros + Streamer Pro if I need super quality audio. Now I'm hoping to get in to my aud-guy today as SNOW is in the forecast, wouldntchaknow.

    Having used size 13 on my Agil Pros for many years now, I SO want the longer battery life (vs 312). But wouldn't this also make the aids BIGGER? I guess my concerns would be: 1.) bigger, heavier aids sitting on top of my ears (as it is, they are a bit sore from the miniRITEs!) and 2.) if aid needs to be bigger, would it require the straw/tube + plastic earmold? If so, I'd be out of the running, as I am hideously allergic to either clear plastic or rose-tinted plastic ear molds. <:-(0)

    What really worked well for me (the last 4 years) as far as Battery life was my Siemens Pure 7's.

    They used 312's - BUT they were RECHARGEABLE 312s.

    I never had to remove the the batteries to charge them as the Siemens HA's were designed to simply set the entire HA into the re-charger base, and two mental contacts on the HA would make contact with the charger (no fiddling with batteries).

    I would place them in the charging base when I went to bed and they were charged by morning.

    Every morning I knew that the batteries would last about 18 hours on a charge so I never worried about losing power in the middle of a meeting/lunch etc..
    After about a year on the batteries they would start to decline an I would replace them when they hit about 12-14 hours of holding a charge.

    Sooo nice not having to fiddle with little batteries AND knowing (almost to the hour) when your battery was going to start to peter out...

    Hope that Oticon incorporates this feature!

    Folks will be along soon to tell you the evils of rechargeable batteries. I have the Carat bx7 aids with 13's.. Never less the 20 hours per overnight charge and dry. I do use replaceable batteries on road trips to save on baggage.
