Recently I was sent to an audi for testing. My symptoms: I misunderstand people often. Sometimes giving crazy replies. Have most problem in when a lot of noise. In a crowded restaurant I hate to even try to talk to the waiter especially when a soft spoken female. I hear her, but don’t understand half of what she says. If it is quiet, I understand ok.

After the test the audiologist talked about aids, but did not seem to be to eager to start. I was going to be out the country for a month or so and all he said was to come by and we will try a few things to see if I could be helped. He did mention that a few years back there was no hope for my problem, but now there are some things he could try. I really could not tell by his reaction that he felt he could help me a lot. Or, maybe he was wanting me to think that there is hope, but expensive.
I met a man who wears Oticon Delta 8000s and loves them. He describes his problem much like mine. But maybe his audiogram is not as bad as mine.
I liked the way the Delta’s look, but my audi uses Phonak and ReSound(?).
Any advice appreciated;. Cost will be a factor. I will pay what I have to, but don’t want to pay for too may bells and whistles, just wantahear!
