I am so glad I found this board.
I have hearing loss in both ears. I currently wear a Widex Bravo B12 BTE digital aid in my left ear. I should be wearing two aids, according to the audiologist, but I’m stubborn and I don’t but that is a topic for another day.
Normally, when talking on a cell phone, I will turn my hearing aid off and use the phone on my right ear. It’s not perfect but I can hear decently.
At previous jobs, I would turn my aid to the “t” setting and talk using the phone on my aid. I can hear just fine that way.
Tomorrow I am starting a job at a call center which is a whole new world for me and I am a bit apprehensive as to how I will hear while using a headset. I am sure I could wear the headset over my left ear with the aid on “t” but I won’t be able to hear anything else around me and I feel like it will be a pain to continously turn the aid to and from the “t” setting.
I’ve been doing some research about loops, bluetooth, etc but it’s just too much to take in all at once and has gotten confusing.
I know it’s kind of broad but could anyone point me towards the right direction of products I should be looking into?
