hi there i am new to this forum and i live in the middle east.
i have been sufferring from hearing loss for many years now and at long last the penny has dropped and i have to buy two hearing aids. They are all pretty expensive, but i have been told that the digital ones are the best.
My problem is what to buy? either 8 channels or 16 channels? the difference in price is quite high and the company says either will do.
my hearing problem is this…
i call it third party noise. one-on -one and i have no problem, however if i watch a dvd or i am talking to a person and there is background noise, then all i hear is gibberish. i now have to get dvd’s with subtitles and am being constantly told to turn the t.v down. When i talk on skype or my cell phone, no problem. restaraunts and shopping centers are a night-mare and pubs are the worst as i just cannot understand anything that is being said.
anybody out there can give me some advice it will be really appreciated.
