I'm sure this has been aired hundreds of times, but
Do over the counter hearing aids (sound amplifiers) work? Do they help?
I just hate the look of the NHS ones, my hair is thin due to the drugs I take so it would be difficult to hide them, and I can't afford £1000 plus for private.
Like these from Amazon A lot of people don't wear them and tell me that unless they can SEE the person's face they cannot hear anything, and what's more the fact that you have a lump of plastic blocking your ear you can almost be more deaf wearing then than not.
If you've spent £1000 or more on one its money down the drain, they tell me, and I've been advised to try Amazon or HearWell first before I commit myself to shelling out privately.
I have to admit I'm too vain to get a free NHS one with a big pink plastic behind the ear microphone.
Have you tried one?
