Mine are bluetooth for everything but TV, you have to either pay more for a different plan (which i though was crazy! Thats how they do it for most new aids now, like I would have to pay for a different "plan" for stuff like wind protection, etc...its all with the exact same hearing aids, just different plan upgrades) or buy a separate connector to plug in to the TV. Im fine without that though, Im so used to watching everything with subtitles its no big deal.Yeah I'm the same-can't hear her standing beside me (which I sometimes intentionally take out my aids LOL). What freaks my wife out is at night asleep-I'll wake her saying "Did you hear that?". She opens her mouth-saying who knows what then rolls over back asleep. Do your aids have the bluetooth for phone and TV-I love that function. The sound quality is so much more "real" than the old analog ones. I don't know how deaf people do it either but my ENT tells me I got progressive loss so likely, in time, will lose more. I just wanna Jam too!!! Rock on.
My old aids were the semi visible ones that are like tiny ear buds...wore those for 8yrs, never realized how badly they were working until I got these Audeo Marvel's...so much cleaner/crisper sounding and realistic...from what i remember natural sound used to be at least haha!
But damn...not sure how much I paid for them exactly but somewhere around 2g a PIECE! Maybe more...
Definitely ordering the Zildjian/Remo silent pack...been watching video demos of those...hopefully i will be able to just take my hearing aids out completely (so I'm not amplifying the sound to my ears) and jam on those with no problems! Wonder if tuning the mesh style heads will basically be the same as regular heads?
