Today, for the first time in several years I think, I did not have to ask anyone to repeat themselves. I didn't quite get all the song lyrics I heard, but the one I missed was Bob Dylan, and you can't understand what he's saying either. :)
On Day 1 at least, the new hearing aids are great, and I'm told that they really don't hit their stride for a couple of weeks - apparently, it takes the brain a while to get used to hearing sounds again. Plus, they're eminently usable at events - if you look carefully, knowing that I'm wearing them, you might see the bit of filament that is visible to the naked eye - the battery/computer chip assembly is small enough that it fits behind the ear unseen, and the speaker bit is seated well down the ear canal.
Very expensive, but this is a case where one gets what one pays for, I think.
