OK so I have been almost blind in one eye since I was a kid. I have been using a wheelchair for 7 years now.
And last winter I discovered I am going deaf - there goes my career as a sign langiuage interpreter for the Witnesses. lol
So 2 weeks ago I got my hearing aids. What the h*ll was I waiting for?
These things are fabulous. I don't have to have my TV blaring so I can hear what people say. I don't have to ask people to keep repeating themselves.
I just grab my nifty remote control and jack up the volume.
These babies are awesome. I can connect them to my MP3 player and even my old Walkman. I can connect to any device with an audio jack into a receiver hanging around my neck and it feeds the sound wirelessly into the hearing aids. I don't even have to have stupid wires coming out of my hears anymore with ear plugs that make my ears hurt.
If I can find a Jabra hub (which are supposedly discontinued) I can even connect my land phone to the receiver.
It will also accept any Bluetooth enabled device through the receiver and directly into the hearing aids.
Hearing aids ain't what they used to be. If you have a hearing problem or think you do, get your hearing checked. You will be surprised at how much you are missing.
