Hearing Impaired / Ear Plugs / Communication ?
I was responding to a question about blue tooth , from my FM radio on the phone,which uses the earphones as a antenna for the radio,which I can do with my hearing aids through my surflink , problem is I have a 27 DB loss at a specific frequency 1300 to 1500 HZ, which largely affects speech recognition .
So for a change I thought to ask others what they use, my thought was to use a remote switchable mic that would communicate with, and below is what I posted on the other thread :
FYI I don't have my hearing aids in while riding, in fact I have earplugs in, one consideration is to get something like Sena or Cardo Scala with a means of having a remote mic, as someone talking to me with helmet on and ear plugs in is like the cone of silence . A PITA need to take glasses off ,helmet off and ear plugs out, just to hear the conversation.
What do others do that are hearing impaired like me, besides writing something on paper.??
