Re: ringing in my ear
I wear digital hearing aids, and sorry to say, they have not removed the ringing from my ears. Both of my ears ring (tinnitis) due to a bad ear infection I had as a teenager.
However, audiologists may recommend wearing aids for those with ringing in the ears for 2 reasons: 1.) often ringing ears are a sign of hearing loss, so the person actually needs to wear a hearing aid and 2.) the aid will amplify sound entering your ear, which can help mask that annoying ringing.
My guess is that your ear will STILL ring after getting the digital aids, but the good news is you may LOVE those digital aids. Today's digital aids have programs to enable you to hear better in normal, noisy surroundings or even on the phone. Analog aids simply can't compare with these new aids. Good luck with the fitting!
