Low Cost Hearing Aid.

Since many of us around here are a bunch of old guys who have spent too much time around loud engines,and Rock and Roll. Here's a heads up.

Low cost, only in comparison. Most good hearing aids will set you back 3-6k up. The brand new Sound World CS-50 costs $350 and has Blue Tooth as well.

The CS-50 requires no prescription and can be set up on your phone or laptop for ideal hearing. Or just use the three factory pre-sets as I do.

I have had mine for just over a week and and it works better than the expensive aids I have used in the past. Great high freq boost without distortion. Best of all it comes with two battery's and a little charger.

The Blue tooth works great too, but my TV will need an audio to blue tooth adapter to work. All the computer and phone BT's work fine. Eh ! A2Jack

Thanks so much A2Jack for sharing this site. It is nice to have an alternative to the six or seven thousand dollars most places want for the digital hearing aids. I'm not that far from enjoying the benefits of one of these. Restaurants with a table full of people are just not enjoyable anymore. Noise cancellation would be a nice thing.
Now, if it would just end the ringing in my ears!...

Unfortunately, I can't wear anything inside he ear. Found that out after investing $2400. Since I've had 5 sinus surgeries, doctors have re-routed my drainage, much of it through the ears. Any hearing aid I put in my ear shorts out quickly from all the moisture.

But thanks for thinking of us coots and cootettes.

Wow! Sorry to hear of the unsuccessful sinus surgeries but thank you for heads up on drainage path.

I don't see how one could avoid a short under those conditions . However, one of our SCOA members has been using a Cochlear transplant and having great success with it. Might that be an option for you ?

It's hell to have to quit talking to people because we can't understand what they are saying to us. Best Regards. A2Jack

I read a Web page on the topic of Tinnitus and the ringing in the ears is not an actual "heard" sound but a sound that is detected by the brain.

I don't have tinnitus. But, I understand some relief can be had by listening to white sound type recordings. Actual white sound is kinda harsh, not to mention boring. Pink sound isn't as harsh. Some have benefited from recordings such as surf, and other such nature sounds. I just happen to sell such recordings in MP3 format. Actually, that's the only reason I know anything about the subject, feedback from customers.
