    There is also a DB at which they run the word recognition test. See below, mine is 80/84% at 105. If I were you, I would try hearing aids in both ears and just see what you get.

    Very strange it would drop that much in one year.

    It was 8% at 90 dB. My better ear was 100% at 60dB.

    Hi all,

    Resurrecting my old thread, just wondering if anything has changed in tech in the last few months.

    Any benefit to me trying an aid in one or both ears with the Word Recognition score I have?

    What is your audiologist suggesting? I think the only way you are going to know if aids are going to help is to try them. If they don't help, you have a trial period where you can return them.

    My WRS is in the teens. My audiologist suggested a single aid for the opposite reason -- severe loss. I opted for two aids and found that my understanding was better with two. I would suggest trying two aids and deciding for yourself. Two aids support more features that you may find helpful. If you don't see a benefit and decide on a single aid, return the premium aids and get the entry level aid to replace them as it will have about the same features as a single premium.

    You should try two aids. I have a pretty severe loss, and using two aids made a big difference in my word recognition scores.
