Not exactly sure what your diagnosis is. Is it only one ear that has major hearing loss? If the other ear is OK, your provider may be suggesting a bi-cross hearing aid system. In that system, the aid worn on the bad ear broadcasts to the aid on the 'good' ear.

If both ears have been diagnosed with hearing loss, you may need two aids, but with different settings to accommodate the degree of hearing loss in each ear.

I had micros hearing aids for a while and they worked well then I was not getting stimulation in the bad ear's nerve so I got a Cochlear implant in my bad ear and have a hearing aid in my good ear. I can hear pretty well in most situations. It did take some time to adjust to the Cochlear implant. Make sure that you get one that can handle MRI's and can bluetooth to your phone.
