I can hear EVERYTHING....

Or anyway it feels that way. My latest addition on my way to cyborghood is a pair of hearing aids(The clear ones - though I was tempted by the purple). Electronic, fifteen channels, designed to amplify the part of the sound spectrum I'm weak in (upper vocal range) without increasing the parts I'm not. I had no idea this keyboard was so noisy, and I can hear the clock tick across the computer room, and the wind and the birds outside. I've already discovered a tendency towards feedback when I've got my hair down or put my hands over my ears, but otherwise though my voice sounds to me like the microphone is too close, they do work. Expensive as all get out, but I'd rather get the best I can afford then spend all my time telling myself they're OK... I shall be wearing them to Consonance this weekend which should make a nice shakedown.

The real test will come when I'm watching TV - it'll be nice to know what the heck half of the cast is saying on Battlestar Galactica. Kinda hard to keep up with a soap opera if you miss half the exposition. :/

Oh - the music line is too short - I'm currently listening to Yolanda Kondonassis' "Scintillation" album of harp music which is Good Stuff.

I have periodically suffered superficial hearing loss due to some kind of middle-ear congestion or blockage in my lifetime and when that finally opens up the difference is refreshing...I imagine what you describe must be a similar experience. I guess this caught my attention especially because my sense of hearing is so important to me.

I have one hearing aid. My good ear was borderline; the other ear has never had much hearing.

Yes, those birds are too darned loud!

I wish they made those for eyes!

I think, though, I'd have gone for the purple ones.

Yeah, my desire to look at the insides won out over the spiffy color. :)
