    Oticon Spirit Zest/Vigo DAI shoes?

    They were sent to me by a friend of a friend who refurbishes them, so they weren't really purchased. The DAI/FM shoes on the other hand, I can buy online, but I don't really wanna pay over $40 in shipping. Sent from my SM-G920P using AllDeaf App mobile app

    Hesitant Doctors?

    Hi all. I've been to 2 audiologists, one a horrible experience (where they called me a malingerer, produced incorrect SRT, and the doctor may have deliberately hurt me?). I just got back from a much better experience, but I'm still frustrated and puzzled. I tested with borderline normal...
