Re: Tinnitus: The agony and the hope
Colin, I also bought wireless headphones which allowed me to personalise the volume of the TV. This did help but I could not adjust the pitch. The Blue-tooth inclusion is between my hearing aids and my mobile phone. There is no blue-tooth between my TV and my mobile or hearing aids. I can adjust what is entering into my hearing aids via sliders on the mobile screen. The extent of the variability is much less than that of the headphones but sufficient to make for comfortable hearing. Now my wireless head phones are no longer required. The value of the Blue tooth hearing aid to mobile connection is adjustments can be made for any occasion not just while you are at home. I have used the system in the cinema and the theatre. Adjustment is quick, smooth and silent. The important understanding is the Bluetooth connection is between the hearing aids and the mobile phone app. There is obviously a connection between the blue tooth in each hearing aid as the adjustment is to both. It is as if the hearing aids are in constant connection with each other through my head. This action has a dramatic effect on the tinnitus which becomes nullified and "goes away". Switch off the blue tooth or remove one of the hearing aids and the tinnitus returns. I have given this information to the British Tinnitus society who were pleased to learn of my experience and also said they knew of other similar instances. So more common than you might think.
When first presented with the hearing aids I asked if there was any choice. Yes said the technician, take them or leave them. I took them. One of my better decisions. Are they without problems - certainly not. later I will tell of one curious difficulty I have.
