I am getting active again after too many years on the back burner. Since I had my last real radio shack I have become an old fart with hearing aids. Hearing in the context of my hobby is a whole different subject and I don't want to hijack this thread but the topic of over the ear headphones with over-the-ear hearing aids interests me. After an hour or so of the headphones pressing in on the hearing aids it can get uncomfortable. They also need to positioned correctly for the hearing aids to work since the mics are on the back of the ear. I have a device that allows my hearing aids to blue tooth to my TV and they can also blue tooth to my phone. My wife controls the tv audio to what suits her and I control my own with the device. Not sure how good that would work with a transceiver but it might be worth a try. The quality is not nearly as good as the headphones if they are positioned correctly. Hearing correctly and responding appropriately are a real concern for me. For that reason I think I will be focusing on digital modes but hate to pass up some good old fashioned voice QSO's.
