    I don't know how long this device has been on the market, but I imagine that if it DID make a dramatic improvement in tinnitus, many ENTs would be using it already. I've had ringing tinnitus in both...

    Just my own 2-cents' worth here, but a medical device like HAs is not the same as a car. Granted, the car COSTS more than the HA, but ironically, you have been able to get fantastic prices on the...

    I would just add: be sure to bring your iPhone and show the audi exactly what you are describing here: one aid works fine, the other does not work at all? In any case, one aid is not...

    Emre, it's been a couple months since your post - so I don't know if you found an answer to your questions. I am by no means an expert here, but I did sit with an audiologist a few years back who...

    ^^^^ OK - Got it! It's the long "leash" that Jamin snipped off! I just did that very thing myself a minute ago. Initially, I found the leash helpful in keeping the aids in my ear (like a security...

    OK - if I understand correctly here, you remove a plastic tube-like guard that comes inside these memory foam Comply tips? Then you gently insert your Oticon receiver into the donut hole so that the...

    Don't test drive a cheap pair - UNLESS whomever fits you is confident they will perform optimally for your loss curve. To try out a medical device that may sound HORRID could actually turn you off to...

    If you trust your audiologist, and that person recommends aids, then it's probably wise to start the process now. Unlike joint surgery, YOU can choose when to swap out old aids for newer ones with...

    Power Domes HURT!

    Augh, the size large Widex power dome on my left aid has left a round, raw sore inside my ear. I wondered how in heck that could happen? Then I took a close look at the dome, and see that idiotic...

    LOL!! With my hearing - and luck - I'd be slammed by the train cuz I wouldn't hear it coming unless I had my aids IN. I've worn my aids through maybe 1,000 or more airport x-rays - no problem. But...

    WOW - you guys are incredibly lucky to get insurance coverage for aids! Here it is such a necessary appliance for me, but I've been on my own paying out-of-pocket with Anthem BC & BS since the...

    Chitownbarb: while I have only used the manual battery operated aids for 30+ years, I would shy away from rechargeable battery aids - personally! They may work fine for others with a different...

    Weighing in with my own hairy response: Female, hair reaches a couple inches past chin. While my hair is thin and straight, it DOES get in the way annoyingly with the BTE mics. In fact for years that...

    I think Phonak may have CROS + streaming capability - but you'd need to check with a reputable audiologist. It does seem like a good combo for HA wearers who may be utterly deaf in one ear, but hear...

    I'll be REAL curious to know the outcome here! I've never ever had any of my ITEs re-cased - even those with annoying leakage & squeakage! Of course, I've only gone through my dedicated aud-guy, and...

    My own experience has been that cleaning the ears just *stimulates* the production of earwax! No kidding, our ears want to maintain a protective coating of wax to prevent dust, etc., from working...
