A brief introduction, I’m a 28 year old guy and for the last 10 years or so I new something wasn’t quite right with my hearing. I just chalked it up to “it was all in my head” sometimes, I thought I was going crazy like when I would hang out with people and would totally mishear the things that they would say and the odd looks I would get when I would respond to peoples questions with answers that made no sense because I misheard their questions. I’m sure a lot of people on here may be able to relate.
It wasn’t until recently that I realized just how much my hearing loss was impacting me. Going on job interviews and asking the interviewer to repeat themselves (especially if the interviewer was female) really started to drive me crazy. My mother was the first person to suggest that I may have a hearing problem and I should get it checked out and she actually set up an appointment with an audiologist because she knew I would probably keep putting it off.
I went to the local audiologist and wasn’t shocked when she showed me the results and suggested that I should get hearing aides, I was relived that I wasn’t going crazy and that it was something that I might be able to improve.
I have put off getting hearing aids until I could save up enough money to get a decent pair. I Have been looking into picking up a pair of resound versa and was wondering if I should hold off until the new resound hearing aids with built in Bluetooth hit the market in the next few months. Any suggestions would be great my audiology exam results are in my signature, I know my loss isn’t that bad but if anybody who has a Similar hearing loss and had good results by getting hearing aids I would greatly appreciate any suggestions
