Donna, while we're on the subject of movies - I don't know if you remember, but I also have low-frequency hearing loss like you. I've been using tester hearing aids this week. That is, when I can stand them! People look at me like I'm a freak for saying this (so what else is new) but they HURT! And ITCH!
I've been trying to decide whether they help with speech, and I really don't think so! Last night I put them in, I took them out, and either way, I couldn't understand Jeff Bridges in "Crazy Heart." The woman at Miracle Ear said low frequencies are more background noises, anyway. Well, I don't really care about
that. If it doesn't help me hear what people are saying I don't think it's worth the thousands of dollars. Do you use hearing aids?
I love movies! Dramas, comedies, musicals, documentaries.
