Hi gyro. Everyone's hearing is different. A product that works for me may not be the best for you. You'll discover this more as you read some of the posts. You may want to concentrate on the hearing aid features. See what appeals to you. Unfortunately, the manufacturers do not make it easy for you to research on your own. Look at hearingtracker.com for comparing hearing aids. It sounds like vanity may be a concern for you since you prefer something that is not easily seen. Keep in mind that certain desirable features, such as a telecoil, may not be able to fit inside an aid that is small. Also consider that when you tell someone you have hearing loss, they WILL forget. It's a constant battle where you're reminding people over and over. Having a hearing aid that is visible may help with that. The sooner that vanity is not an issue, the better. As far as tinnitus treatment, be careful of the hype. This feature only helps a small number of people and may not help you. Plan on visiting your audiologist on a regular basis so that the hearing aid programs can be updated to better match your loss.
