Anyone out there an avid hiker? Or even some sort of sport enthusiast? What do you use to protect your hearing aids while hiking or working out? Any gadgets or strategies to help you hear when on the trail? Hiking is a big part of my work and I find it difficult to communicate with my hiking partner at times compared to when I used to have ‘normal’ hearing 3 years ago.
I recently ordered a pair of ‘ear gear’ (gearforears.com) to help keep my aids protected. I also have a hearing aid dehumidifier case (no it’s not a Dry & Store, yes I’ve heard of it, no I’m not interested in it considering there’s no place top plug it in when in the wilderness, can you tell I’m sick of ppl recommending it).
I’m also considering getting a pair of Oticon Agils and having my hiking partner wear the lapel microphone that connects with the streamer. Someone suggested using an FM system the same way but aren’t they generally larger and more expensive?
