if I am not to forward here, I think you should explore the B-Cros option. I too am deaf in my right ear (since 4 years of age- almost 60 years and have profound loss in the other – related to aging / perhaps overuse) and got my first pair of Phonax Bi-Cros 6 years ago. That did not work out well and I was going to give up. However, I did op, as a trial, for the next generation of Phoinax Bi-Cros (upgraded technology) and the difference is night and day. Although I still cannot echo locate, I can hear in the vehicle while driving (good ear was always to window), no longer search for "seating" that gave me the best chance to hear and other benefits. I am kind of bewildered that your audiologist would recommend nothing – my audiologist was insistent that my quality of life would improve and she was right. I am fortunate that my wife's health insurer pays for hearing aids (every four years).
