>I need a hearing aid... or two! Can anyone one suggest a good manufacturer
and hearing aid type? Many thanks for your comments.
prescribing a hearing aid is a highly individulistic matter. each company
has its strengths and weaknesses for different amplification needs and the
style of your aid will depend upon many factors such as your lifestyle, how
much you're willing to spend, and the individual characteristics of your ear
such as how much cerumen (ear wax) you produce. therefore, it is impossible
for any of us to give you a hard and fast rule re: what is appropriate for
your specific needs without having seen you as our patient.
the best thing for you to do is to see an audiologist who will take the time
to give you a thorough evaluation and discuss your options with you. your
role is to bring with you a list of your questions and concerns so you can
be sure that all of your needs are met to your satisfaction.
we stroll together silently,
just the two of us -- my wolf and me...
