On a recent trip, we rented audio guides at several museums and other sights. My 8 year old daughter, who wears BTE Phonaks with ear molds, was not able to use some of the guides that we rented. Some of the guides had wonky headphones that fit on top of the ear. She was not able to position them to sit on top of the receiver and the audio jack was not compatible with the Roger audio jack. For the first one, she ended up rigging the thing so she could kind of hear but had to hold the headphone in place over her aid. Not at all optimal, and she was a bit self conscious. That night I grabbed a set of cheap wired ear buds in case we ran into the same problem the following day; and we did. The aids came out (protective case at the ready!) and the ear buds went in.
She enjoys the audioguides; she likes to learn about the art or structure that we are visiting. I’d like to buy her some decent (not cheap, not off the charts) wired ear buds to use when we travel and cannot use the Roger technology.
Does anyone have suggestions on decent wired ear buds? I realize this isn’t so much a hearing loss question as much a general technology question, but I also realize I do not wear hearing aids and that I may be missing something. And it is possible that other folks here have faced this challenge, and have solved it with a particular product or style.
