Re: Hearing aids
I have been wearing hearing aids Oticon-Intiga for 10 years. Cost 5K. I bought them to help with understanding conversations better but have been very disappointed with them in general. In noisy situations such as busy restaurants they were horrible. They made the crowd noise worse. As far as band rehearsals they were useless. Due to the loud volume of band instruments hearing without aids is no problem. I consider my hearing aids the biggest waist of money (5K). I think less expensive models would have worked just as well in my situation. Please do your homework before you buy and be realistic about your expectations. They will not give you bionic ears! Good luck.
