Thanks. I’ll try to repost the audiogram tomorrow. I’m new to hearing aids so it’s a BIG adjustment. I was told over 12 years ago I needed them

There are many different factors in hearing loss and how hearing aids interact with hearing loss. Hearing loss is affected by frequencies, tones and the different qualities of sound and environment, and interactions with technologies ( talking on the phone, talking on the phone with automated systems , life person, mobile phones …) also it has tolerances , some sounds that are not bothering full hearing people could be painful, and very painful to people dealing with hearing loss and the hearing aid industry has been trying to work on that too.

It is a shame that hearing aids are so expensive and in countries like the US , are not most of the time covered by health insurance the way it is in Europe.
