I have a profound bilateral hearing loss…started out with one hearing aid then progressed to 2 because all Professionals tell you 2 is better for balance etc.
That’s true to a certain degree . My right ear is the good one and over the years I have learned that using only the good ear provides a better hearing experience in certain situations.
I try to wear both as much as possible and generally do so in the normal day to day life. However, in noisy situations such as auditoriums, parties and some restaurants I take the left aid out. I can cope with all the extraneous noise better even though I have noise suppression programs. I actually understand better with only the good ear aided. I have been doing this for quite a few years after 40 years of wearing hearing aids and wonder how many others feel about 2 versus 1 aid….or CI.
