The ear phones have made listening to TV an absolute joy. I use the big soft pads that surround the ears. Plugs into TV, with charge stand by the T.V. As to music, I do not enjoy playing on my keyboard, nor listening to some music as much anymore… music in restaurants is annoying. A talker, I now talk less, go to restaurants where just one group at my table as my preference. I'll settle for hearing aids, for the terrible high price they cost to actually improve the quality of my hearing. My keyboard, if not wearing head phones, sounds super tinny. As to any cure, I'd forget that. But seems tech could vastly improve hearing reception by now.
