Hearing Aids


M.Nelson <magpie.mn@...>
 

I don’t often recommend products unless I am really pleased with them. I just want to put a little plug in for the Phonak Cros hearing aids. I have little or no hearing in my right ear because of nerve damage. I wore in-ear aids for about 7 years and hated them but wore them anyway. Then about a year and a half ago, I was introduced with the Phonak behind the ear aids. The one for the right ear is a transmitter and the one on the left is the receiver. I just cannot say enough good about these aids and how much better they work than the old ones. I no longer have the feeling that I am going to scream when in a crowded noisy place. I would never suggest that they replace normal hearing but they sure come closer than what I  experienced before. I just had them cleaned and adjusted and it is so slick. I put them on, the tech puts a device around my neck and then he does all the adjusting on his computer. Fortunately, my hearing in the left ear is still pretty good and I pray it continues. On top of that, I have been in twice for adjusting and they do not charge me at all. When I was in Arizona, they charged for everything.

Hi Marie, I can't agree with you more. I used to have a pair of these, and they worked somewhat well. It sounds like they've improve them a little bit so if I've had them last. But I did enjoy them for outside use.

Before I had hearing aids, I had that terrible feeling like I could scream in a crowded place. I think it is a sort of migraine syndrome. Doesn't it just make your insides feel like they're turning you wrong side out?

Bye for now,

I have heard so many different stories and I am seriously happy for those who report success with new hearing aids.

 

I have been told with the aid I have, nothing else I wear will improve or not help the hearing, and this was from two specialist...

My hearing aid is a quontam something lol but don’t remember the exact name. I have that major ringing in the right ear and like I said severe hearing loss in the right ear. I use to wish  I could see better, hahaha now I give anything to hear much better. Not perfect hearing but at least hear someone when talking to me in a crowded room.

I have problems with that constant ringing in both ears. I tell people it's like going through life with a crack in your glasses.

I barely hear it when my aid is in but when I go to sleep and take the aid out, good lorde, I feel like strangling myself. It's loud!

Yeah, at night, it sounds like locusts out in the trees, doesn't it, whether or not there are trees, and even with snow on the ground! But I do hear it with my aids on.

I don't have the ringing issue thank goodness but was told that these aids also help reduce tinitis. Might be worth a try. You can try these out so if they don't work for you they are easy to return since they are not made to fit any person's ears.

Hi Group,

As concerns hearing aids, I may be in the market for one soon enough.
Has anyone figured out a way to change the batteries for those things?
I know of 2 blind people who are having loads of difficulties doing
this. Since with constant usage, the batteries only last a few weeks,
this could be a real problem for those who do not have constant sighted
assistance with changing batteries.

Hi,
I am late to this thread.
However, I do have Constant Tinnitus.
What is the hearing aid that might help with that?

I do not have a hearing problem, but the Constant ringing in my ears is just overwhelming sometimes. I have been told there is nothing I can do about it.

If anyone knows of any device or technology that can help with this, I would be very pleased to know about it.

Blessings and All the Very Best,
Pat Seed

Changing hearing aid batteries is only a problem if you have the smallest,completely in the canal aids. If you wear in the ear (ITE) or behind the ear (BTE) aids, which use larger size 13 or 675 batteries, you can easily replace them. I am the world's biggest klutz, and I am able to change the size 13 batteries in my Siemens BTE aids myself without sighted help.

I have heard so many different stories and I am seriously happy for
those who report success with new hearing aids.



I have been told with the aid I have, nothing else I wear will improve
or not help the hearing, and this was from two specialist...

My hearing aid is a quontam something lol but don’t remember the exact
name. I have that major ringing in the right ear and like I said
severe hearing loss in the right ear. I use to wish I could see
better, hahaha now I give anything to hear much better. Not perfect
hearing but at least hear someone when talking to me in a crowded room.

I don’t often recommend products unless I am really pleased with them.
I just want to put a little plug in for the Phonak Cros hearing aids.
I have little or no hearing in my right ear because of nerve damage. I
wore in-ear aids for about 7 years and hated them but wore them
anyway. Then about a year and a half ago, I was introduced with the
Phonak behind the ear aids. The one for the right ear is a transmitter
and the one on the left is the receiver. I just cannot say enough good
about these aids and how much better they work than the old ones. I no
longer have the feeling that I am going to scream when in a crowded
noisy place. I would never suggest that they replace normal hearing
but they sure come closer than what I experienced before. I just had
them cleaned and adjusted and it is so slick. I put them on, the tech
puts a device around my neck and then he does all the adjusting on his
computer. Fortunately, my hearing in the left ear is still pretty good
and I pray it continues. On top of that, I have been in twice for
adjusting and they do not charge me at all. When I was in Arizona,
they charged for everything.

I have lived totally alone for the last 4 years and I sat down one day and learned how to change my batteries. It was not easy since I had always had sighted people do it for me prior to that. But with concentration and perseverance it is now a fairly simple chore which I choose to do for myself.

Hi Group,

As concerns hearing aids, I may be in the market for one soon enough.
Has anyone figured out a way to change the batteries for those things?
I know of 2 blind people who are having loads of difficulties doing
this. Since with constant usage, the batteries only last a few weeks,
this could be a real problem for those who do not have constant sighted
assistance with changing batteries.

the Phonak Cros behind the ear type is supposed to help. I can't be positive since I do not have the problem.

Hi,
I am late to this thread.
However, I do have Constant Tinnitus.
What is the hearing aid that might help with that?

I do not have a hearing problem, but the Constant ringing in my ears is just
overwhelming sometimes. I have been told there is nothing I can do about it.

If anyone knows of any device or technology that can help with this, I would
be very pleased to know about it.

Blessings and All the Very Best,
Pat Seed

The set which I have was a little over $3000. and here in Reno I went to Sierra Hearing but i believe it is local only. I would look in the phone book for Hearing centers and call to ask if they carry the Phonak Cros.
