  1. My husband showed me your talk on “Hacking Hearing Aids.” Very impressive. I wish I was so savvy

    I’m wondering if you have any information about bone-attached hearing aids. I have profound loss in my left ear and moderate to severe in my right ear. I was “tested” with a baha (cochlear.com) and my test results were very good. However, I am skeptical because it is the same test as I have had for the last 50 years – say the word baseball, say the word northwest. So, it’s very easy for me to get these correct. The documentation about this device is persuasive, but I take your point about public situations have not improved at all. This procedure, they drill a hole in your mastoid bone and insert a post to which you attach the processor. It takes 3 months after the post is put in before you can use the processor, and then the calibration begins.

    Do you know anything about these devices? I have found a users forum and everything seems wonderful.

    Thanks for any information you can tell me.
