Any advice on hearing aids?
I'm probably within a year or two of needing a hearing aid. I haven't had my hearing tested, but notice I tend to miss a word now and then in conversations or if someone is speaking from across the room where before I didn't.
I will say this: on a whim I asked the doctor on my last yearly visit to check my ears for wax and sure enough one of them was plugged up. After removal my hearing improved about 50%. I always thought I'd know if that was happening, but I didn't.
There are so many brands and types of hearing aids it seems, all saying they, and they only, have the latest and greatest technology. Does "Consumers Digest" rate them? I've heard so many stories about people spending $2,000 plus on a hearing aid then not using it.
I thought if anybody had some tips and advice on this question you all on this forum would.
