Hello everyone, I have been reading posts on this forum and I am amazed on the amount of time people have put in to help. So I have a question. I have really mild hearing loss with a 30db dip at 4k on left and 35db 4k dip on right with 10db across range. (they wont let me post my audiogram yet as I am a new user) I am a university professor and work with small and large groups of professionals. I find it difficult to hear what they are saying so I purchased from an on-line source a generic BTE device programmed to my pattern. It made a tremendous difference but in noisy situations I simply can not hear what is being said.
I have decided to explore the opticon made for iphone device and have a audiologist coming round tomorrow to my home to advise me.
The question, is my hearing loss sufficiently bad to warrant spending such a large amount of money? I am tempted by the made of iphone functionality as i spend a lot of time on my phone also.
Anyways, thanks for taking the time to read this, regards, Jonathan
