Nice to hear again!

I’ve had my Bose hearphones for about a month and really am quite satisfied. So many instances where I feel like I’m part of life again, like sitting in the back seat and being involved in conversations, enjoying TV at a normal volume and being able to hear when taking a call to list a few. I like how I can adjust the settings to my personal needs depending on my environment.

My only issue was when I went from an iPhone 7 to the 10 Xr and the new phone would not recognize the app. Customer support helped me to perform a system update and once I deleted the app and reinstalled, I was back up and running. (Hold time was inordinately long, but the support was great.)

My plan is to use the hearphones at least until 2020 when hearing aid sales will be deregulated. At that time I am betting (hoping) Bose will have a traditional hearing aid developed at a fraction of the $5000 cost of the best ones today!

Pretty good but App needs work

I have tinnitus and am a hearing aid user. These headphones are better than the hearing aids by far. The App can be a little finicky at times. Sometimes, even though it’s been connected several times, it asks you to pair it. Then you have to delete it from your phone and start over. Then, randomly, you may have to do that again the next time you connect. Connecting to a new MacBook Pro was a real hassle. Took like 7 or 8 attempts after clearing Bluetooth device list in headset. I’m still learning but I wish there was a way to turn down world volume but turn up a targeted volume, like conversation or TV. Well worth the investment so far. TV mode is awesome

Better than my hearing aid

The Bose Hearphones are by far the best hearing device that I have ever used. The range and sound pattern, particularly in public areas, is so much easier to manipulate than my very expensive hearing aids. What’s more, they are also the best sounding music earbuds that I have ever used. Have you ever tried listening to streaming music from an iPhone using hearing aid software? Don’t, the quality is horrible. The only advantage that most expensive hearing aids have over the Hearphones is their size. Hearphones look just like QuietControl 30s in your ears, but so what?? All my friends already know I have a hearing problem, so who am I kidding? Why spend 1,000’s of dollars to wear “invisible” hearing aids, which sound horrible when you try to play music or take a phone call, and aren’t really fooling anybody anyway?
