Yes i got them (finally)! It was one hell of a wait.
The difference with newbies is that they go behind the ear and not just in the ear.
I reverted back to the “behind the ears” due to the condensation that the old aids were giving in my ears. It became so itchy and hot and sometimes had an effect on the aid itself.
I’m hoping the ‘newbies’ help with the above problem in the long run.
Here’s a photo of the difference in the aids.
Newbies on the left, oldies on the right.
I’ve noticed the improvement in the sound already – I tend to have turn them down whilst in the kitchen (too noisy)!
