Aids and dating

When you wear invisible hearing aids, people just assume you have perfect hearing and treat you like a boor if you don’t move when they say “excuse me” from behind you and you don’t hear them.

I’m sure there are more things I could say, but those are some of the things that immediately come to mind. However, on the plus side, because the Lyric is inserted so far down the ear canal, your outer ears should work normally in collecting and filtering sounds before these sounds reach the microphone.

When the battery dies, you throw them away and get new ones.

However, in the case of the Lyric, you can’t put the new one hearing aid in your ear by yourself—so if the battery dies while you are at an important convention for example, you not only won’t hear, but the hearing aid will block any sound trying to get in to that ear.

Thus, you need to compare their “contract” price per year with what conventional hearing aids would cost you per year.

When you amortize the cost of conventional hearing aids over 5 to 10 years (and I regularly get 10 years with my aids), I think you will find these Lyrics are VERY expensive—and remember that is for “plain Jane” aids, not fancy digital conventional aids.

Slack is explicitly a workplace app, with the tagline on its website reading 'Where work* happens.'The asterisk adds: *'Whatever work means for you, Slack brings all the pieces and people you need together so you can actually get things done.'Experts suggest that Feeld's dating service is simply piggybacking on the chatroom app. Originally marketed as '3nder', the app was touted as the 'Tinder for threesomes' when it was first released in 2014.

The matchmaking company Feeld has created a new feature to help people hookup with their office crush.

The dating experts now let colleagues connect using Slack, a chatroom app used by many tech and media companies.

I’d much rather buy a hearing aid I can put in and take out myself, and one I can change the batteries on too. It is not digital so can’t do any fancy digital speech processing that current digital hearing aids do.

Fourth, it does not have a t-coil in it so you couldn’t use it to hear via room loops or neckloops, etc.
