I am very close to the point of investing in hearing aids, Susan. Not the “invisible” kind that cost four grand and need an expert to install in each ear, but ones that use Bluetooth to connect to my phone so that I can make adjustments on the fly and tweak as needed from my phone or watch. Essentially wireless noise-canceling earbuds, only instead of canceling external noise they amplify the “good” sounds. Still several hundred bucks, though, and the technology is changing so fast they’ll be obsolete in a couple years, so I’m waiting a little bit yet.
