No, I don't have extra noise in my normal environment. No children in my household, etc. I do listen to radio a lot and have a setting on my hearing aids to enhance just for that type of thing, but with both hearing aids in I do not hear the radio as clearly. Going to the movie theater….I hear dialogue much better when I use one hearing aid. Strangely, watching movies on TV through Netflix, I can pick up dialogue better using both hearing aids! Go figure!
