I have moderate to severe high frequency roll-off loss in both ears. I’ve had KS8’s for about 2 months. When I wear the KS8’s I do notice some modest improvement in hearing but not dramatic, In fact there are many days when I am up and about that I don’t sense the need to insert them based on not hearing things … so I forget to stick 'em in. I seem to get along just fine without them. I’ve worn them enough that I know to the extent that my hearing is improved. However, I don’t feel the improvement is dramatic enough to remind me to stick them in first thing each morning. Hence I’m thinking of returning them some time before my 6 months are up. Soooo … I’ve heard / read that hearing loss, at least of a certain magnitude of loss, really should be treated. Aids may help with keeping mental faculties longer and even social isolation. I’m questioning how true this is for my hearing loss situation. Seems like I would need a more profound hearing loss such that wearing the aids makes a dramatic and very noticeable improvement. Then keeping them would be a no-brainer (pun intended).
Is my thinking off-base on this? Have others come to the same conclusion as to keep or return new aids?
