I have returned to radio after many years of inactivity. Right now my interests are mostly SWL with SDR radios but I do have a R-8500 on the desk and the possibility of me setting up my TS-850SAT again if it even works after many years of hibernation. I have found and confirmed with an Audiologist that my high frequency hearing is very diminished, I am not deaf but tone deaf. I started noticing it with the family saying I have selective hearing but confirmed it when trying to listen to the radio. Trouble picking things out in the noise, callsigns, broadcasters ID's etc. conversations are OK but I guess that's because I "fill in the blanks" which does not work with a ID. I often find myself exhausted from "decoding" conversations and broadcasts vs listening. What can I do to improve this ? Some people speak about the ClearSpeech DSP modules and small amplified speakers. Others say use headphones which is an option at times but I would rather not since that would disconnect me from the family in the next room. Since it's mostly SDR right now people have recommended Bose Companion 2 speakers which are just PC speakers. The Yamaha CM500 headset, others say just any speaker with the MFJ Intellegence Enhancer etc. etc. I am wondering what others are doing so they can continue to enjoy the radio hobby? Since most of my work is SDR I was thinking of a pair of bluetooth bookshelf speakers for the laptop and it's AUX inputs for analog radios and possibly some sort of EQ Software fed by a virtual cable ?
