Had my aids about four weeks now. when I first got them I absolutely hated them they were uncomfortable and the noise was so weird. At first I tried private ones with white noise built in. Also they were smaller and more comfortable but unfortunately couldn’t afford the £1800 so after a weeks trial I had to hand em back. Im not that hard of hearing I struggle with high pitch not surprisingly as I suffer with T in both ears badly. But I must admit they do help me through the day time it sort of splits the sounds from the one that’s real and my scream. But they do help and I’d never thought I’d say that. Still hard work a times though. Keep well all.
