They are okay but no where near as good as today's equipment. I used one thru school from 1997 to 2002. They are very old technology.

Only £1000 for mono then or £1500 for stereo.

Bit annoying when you can get Bluetooth microphone transmitter AND receiver for £180

(Yes - I know its designed for Sony camcorders - the point is that functionality is available at that price point - and might work with a hearing aid neck loop connected to the receiver - Also this option allows 2 way communication ! - so HI to HI is possible).

Anyone got one to try ?

Financial costs can limit Accessibility too

I do agree they are VERY expensive but the difference is huge.

If you can't afford them or get funding for them then the cheaper ones are always better then nothing.

With the new FM system, in noisy environments the speech line gets raised 16db so its easier to hear in noise.

Have you tried to use them in noisy environments (pubs etc) with 'success' then Naida ?

I got the FM a month ago and was having way too many problems with it as it don't sound very good.

Got a new one (exchanged) and yes, very good even in a hall with 150 people talking.

You also need them programmed with the FM successware program to match your gains in your hearing aids.
