I have been profoundly deaf in my left ear since I was a young child, probably caused by mumps.
I have always 'just managed', but it has been a blight through my life, & a social hindrance, often causing embarrassing mistakes & misunderstood, awkward conversations. But I have just heard about Cros aids which relay sounds from your deaf side to a receiver in your good ear, and am going to try them out tomorrow. Does anyone know about these, & how useful they are? I'm worried about a sudden overload of sound in my hearing ear, & how to judge sound direction. Any experience or advice please?
