Hello, I am a newbie to the forum and to hearing aids in general. I have enjoyed these forums and found them very informative. Thank you all for the great postings.
I will be getting fitted for at least one hearing aid (right ear for sure) very soon and would appreciate some advice.
Should I consider wearing a BTE hearing aid? I am fairly active and practice Aikido 3 to 4 hours a week. I would like to be able to wear the HA during practice and was concerned that a BTE would fall off while rolling (we do lots of rolling). One of our Aikido senseis wears an ITE model so I thought that might be a better choice. Also I wear glasses and was concerned that they might interfere with a BTE model.
Would also like advice if I should wear a second HA in my left ear, where I have mild to moderate loss only.
I will ask these questions at the Audiologists but wanted to see what folks in the forum had to say.
Thank you and best regards.
