I am Shyam. I am developing a new hearing aid with a focus on cost reduction and sound quality.
I am looking for hearing impaired users who would like to share their experiences with hearing aids and help us identify problems with current hearing aids.
You may contact me, please use pm
I might be able to help…
I am not a hearing aid user, but have been fitting hearing aids for 24 years, since the days before digital even came to the market. Feel free to email me at email@example.com
I have been wearing hearing aids for about five years. Feel free to contact me via firstname.lastname@example.org.
Welcome to the forum.
@Raudrive - That’s not the right approach to answering the OP’s request. How many thousands of messages exist in this forum? What percentage actually are pertinent to the OP’s request?
The OP asked for people to involve themselves and you want to have the OP scroll through everything to find “[a]nswers to all his questions.” Either volunteer to participate or don’t post such a rude response.
I can’t really say I have any problems with my current hearing aids. Although, to be fair, if I didn’t have a good insurance plan and employee hearing aid benefit the cost would be prohibitive. (I do understand there is A LOT covered by the price, but if you don’t have it; you don’t have it.)
I would love to join your study. I have considerable “ear training”–having taken classes back in the late 1960’s labeled: “Ear Training” for my Bachelors degree in Music!
Now I suffer from moderate hearing loss. I have a pair of “Some timers”–hearing aids by Beltone. If you would like to read a great story about National F R A U D you might want to get on my email list???

Please keep this panel open. Did you get my email??? Did my email arrive yet?
We have invented some components (pull strings, domes etc)for hearing aid manufactures. Please email me for details. HEARINGAID@ACNINC.NET
First problem is for asymatrical loss fitting software should solve masking problem it self. Majority provider think enter audiogram and do first fit and turn on universal program thats done. But actually not.
I would be wearing a pair of oticon aids today if they could fix the problem of Bluetooth drop out. If you can come up with an aid similar in quality to the oticon opn range with stable Bluetooth you will be on a winner,
Thank you for your inputs.
II have been wearing hearing aids for 35 years now. I am a veteran with 60% service connected disability due to my hearing. Here are a few suggested improvement that come to mind.:
- Greater reliability, especially for user with severe hearing loss that tend to have the hearing aids set at maximum amplification most of the time.
- Better manufacturing practices. Especially batter doors and clips on accessories.
- Improved connectivity. Too often Bluetooth connections are dropped. too often. also direct connection between the hearing aid and sending units. Direct connection with Android phones. Easier connection with multiple hearing aid accessories.
- Would like to see a shotgun type directional remote mike.
