    Happy10, you have my empathy here. ANY time HAs don't work to our satisfaction it is a real stresser! I have also worn aids for 30+ years, and have tried Starkey, Phonak, AGX and Oticon. You can see...

    I also wonder if there may be headsets worn with aids to hear sound more naturally. Like, surely in sound mixing booths SOMEONE must wear aids? What do they do to compensate for that flat, tinny...

    TOTALLY TRUE! And these days, battery life can be depleted even faster with streaming (TV, music, phone). My old Oticon Agil Pro aids with size 13 batteries (and little if any streaming!) last a good...
