5 days ago · Hearing aid noise in car in Hearing Loss

Sometimes when I start my 2005 car, my hearing aids seem to sync with the engine running and create an annoying loud buzz or hum in my ears until I turn the car off. Someone on this site suggested a good simple solution to my problem, but now I can't remember what it was. Help.

I just heard a nice presentation from the Lions Sight and Hearing Foundation of Southern California. They help people with hearing and vision problems to get glasses and hearing aids. Contact them at and see if they can refer you to the Lions Sight & Hearing in your area. Don't give up.

My hard of hearing family of origin is the most resistant to helping me hear! When we gather, the ones who are able do communicate, and I feel like I'm being ignored (I'm the oldest and the most hard of hearing).

But not all movies offer the closed-caption capability, and I don't know how to find out which do unless I actually go to the movie theater, buy my ticket, and inquire. And all closed-captioning devices provided by theaters do not function reliably, but they only turn on (or fail to) as the movie begins. I gave up on seeing movies for those reasons. Wait for them to be shown on TV and watch with closed captions.

Nov 20, 2019 · Auto racket: Hearing aids make an annoying noise when car is running in Hearing Loss

My hearing aids (Phonak CROS) which I purchased last July sometimes make an annoying loud puttering sound when my car is running. It begins when I start my car. Sometimes the noise subsides; sometimes it continues for the duration of my trip. What could be causing this? The noise seems to be in sync with the motor. Car is a 15-year-old Acura.

Sep 18, 2019 · Smartphone question: Which one is best for hard of hearing people? in Hearing Loss

Since my stroke my family wants me to buy a smartphone and keep it at all times so I could summon help if I fell. Which smartphone would be helpful for a hard of hearing person? There seem to be so many models with such varied capabilities.
