My HAs have bluetooth and, though I’m brand new to them, it’s working very well, so far. I don’t think the iPod sounds as good as with a great pair of headphones, but TV and telephone sound great through the bluetooth connection.
I was born with a congenital hearing loss, but didn’t get hearing aids until now (age 45). I could have used them in school… it would have helped me in classroom and lecture situations. However, my hearing loss was not taken seriously by anyone and my complaints about having trouble hearing fell on truly deaf ears. When I finally found a sympathetic doctor, he was surprised at how long I went without any hearing assistance. At that point, I actually could not afford HAs so I still went without. Finally, I got HAs and I am glad to have them.
