    I need hearing aids, What works for you?
    I want something that is Frequency specific, and fits in the ear canal. I think that the ones behind the ear would be uncomfortable, and cause problems when putting on my helmet for drag racing.

    We have spent a lot of money over the years at many brand name establishments without much help to my wife. I finally convinced her to see the audiologist at COSTCO 5 years ago and he found a set that works very well for her.

    Their prices are at least 50% less than anywhere else and you get lifetime adjustments free (to include a rebuild when the dog decided that one of them was a chew toy.

    I hope you can find some that work for you. I think the "hearing aid" business is a huge racket that fleeces lots of folks for lots of money. Just my simple opinion.

    I agree some of the reason that I don't have them yet.

    Just don't settle for these Glen. It is hard to wear these and pack your elk at the same time. Also, way too much drag when you are on the strip.

    Best bet is to go to the ENT get a hearing test and see what they offer.

    My dad has the small behind the ear hearing aids. He forgets they are there most of the time. With his gray hair (None of which is from me) and the gray color of the body you can't even tell he has them on as the part that goes in the ear is clear.

    My dad went to Belltone, got the hearing test, and had a mold made of his inner ear. About a week later the Belltone guy came out to his house with the new hearing aids, and made sure that they both fit, and worked. Dad was impressed right away! Then he went out the back door into the yard. The first thing he heard was a Jet flying over. When we came out he was standing in the yard looking up, so we all looked up too. When we couldn't see anything, and he was still looking up, and all around the sky. So we asked what he was looking for, and he said "The Jet". There was no Jet, it was the light breeze that was blowing. Dad took those hearing aids off, handed them back to the Belltone man, and sent him on his way.

    My daughter has been wearing hers since she was 1. Shes now almost 6. You can't just get a pair and have them work perfectly. Trust me I know. She gets hers adjusted all the time. They tweak hers at least every 6 months.
