Don’t ask me the type of hearing-loss I have, Mayo Clinic doesn’t even know, every audiology test they seam to change their mind on what kind of loss I have. My hearing loss involves all parts of my ear and is degenerative. Its moderate to severe, worse at the high frequency end better at the low frequency.
are there any true wireless hearing aids out there? for moderate to severe hearing loss?
Any that require a hoop is not really wireless in that you still have to wear a wire on your body and is easily prone to damage under regular use. Hoops not ment for use in active setting where your moving a lot. like riding bike or running.
I don’t want any device putting out radiation on my body meaning the hoop sending signal to aids qualify. And as far as the aids themselves, its only receiving not sending.
I won’t even use cellphones too close to the output source for my liking.
this hearing aid needs to be able to connect to land line or TV via switch on the aid.
Reason I am asking here is, when I go to request to aids before the 5 year limit is up, I need to explain what it is I need, that will be best for me, so I am not missing out on vital life activities, like using the phone for important activities such and talking to doctors and emergencies.
netflix actually cancelled my subscriptions all because I couldn’t properly hear and understand the rep.
I AM NOT LOOKING FOR SALES PITCH
I do business through Mayo(they have 31 years of my records for hearing loss there, my loss is not normal, so I am staying with the group that has the most familiarity to my loss), I don’t want to go in totally ignorant about what is currently available. Mayo will special order if necessary, I am just tired of being left out of certain things others take for granted like using the phone (without it all being distorted or feed backing), understanding what is actually being said on tv without subtitles or hearing people and not asking them to repeat 3-4 times.
I need to be able to tell them exactly what I need by point to examples
OH and most important it needs to be ruggadized for sweaty conditions, need to last minimum 5 years without failing.
miss my hearing aids from the 80’s, no need for dry-aid or drying unit, lasted 5-6 years without failing, and actually got submerged in bathtub and taken in shower couple of times by accident. it was not moisture resistant yet it still survived.
preferably one not made in china in that they use substandard material for almost everything especially copper.
