I don't know why they cost so much either.  Luckily I was able to make payments..some people can't even do that....

Should be somekind of discount offered by AARP, unless there is one and I don't know aboutl.

 

Yes truly helped me

Yes. I got the free test at Costco (membership required), and a second time at a hearing specialist in Los Angeles. The Costco test showed I had a 30 Percent loss, and the second test showed almost a 40 percent loss. I purchased two hearing aids and my life has improved immensely. I encourage every senior to get tested. Before my hearing aids, I was withdrawing socially because it was embarrassing to keep asking people to repeat themselves. Luckily, for me, I have an incredible health insurance plan, which picked up most of the cost. I don't understand why these tiny devices cost so much.

You have to go back to audiologist to have them adjusted and also he can give you some oil to use in ear to stop the itching.It was just a small bottle ran out, but on reading the ingredients Vitamin E, so I just bought a generic Vitamin E oil...Yes, takes a while to get used to...your brain has to adjust,.. It will eventually do so.  But you might need the other one,  to even things out with your hearing...

Yes Just yesterday got hearing aids. My ears feel stopped up and itch constantly. Everything is louder but understanding voices has not improved. I will try to remain hopeful that in time I will get used to them and my hearing with understanding will improve.
