Hearing Aid Manuals

If you are considering purchasing an Audiologist prescribed Hearing Aid, ask whether it comes with a well written comprehensive Manual. I recently purchase an Opticon Real One Hearing Aid. It is highly regarded for its voice clarity. However the accompanying manual is rudimentary. Like many high end Hearing Aids one can pair it to ones cell phone or stream from a tablet. Pairing, streaming and dealing with lost Bluetooth connections for instance is not covered. The manual will direct you to your Audiologist ! However, the Opticon supprt  will provide instructions when requested by email. I have no idea whether other Hearing Aid manufacturers do a better job, but attention to this problem before purchasing may save you time and frustration. An example of an excellent manual for a related device is the one that comes with Caption Call phones.
