Hearing aid in the shop
Up on the hoist. Mechanics underneath examining the chassis with flashlights and frowns.

Or maybe they have to use a microscope.

One of my hearing aids died, and the audiologist sent it back to the manufacturer (Starkey) for repairs. In just over a year, this is the second time this has happened. (I think the previous time was the other hearing aid, but I'm not sure.)

This doesn't seem too bad to me, but I wondered about the experience of other people. How does this seem to you? Excessive, surprisingly rare, reasonable?

1. Mine were only sent back to make new ones
when it turned out I was allergic to the "skin" coloring dye. The part that goes in the canal made my ears itch like crazy. I received new aids that have no dye (are clear). I have Oticon.
