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!

For me, Hearphones are great! I have almost no hearing in my left ear and reduced hearing in my right. I drive people crazy asking them to repeat themselves. I have to play the TV too loud for everyone. In restaurants and other public settings, I can't hear most conversations. With Hearphones all these issues go away. Using the iPhone Hearphones app, I can tune the Hearphones to the environment I am in.

A surprise feature for me was the ability of the Hearphones to function as high quality headphones for my iPhone. When I get a call on my iPhone and I am wearing my Hearphones, the call rings in the Hearphones. When I play music on my iPhone the music plays through the Hearphones.

Ok- saw the special on CBS Sunday Morning and knew I needed this for our 85 year old mom who sets the sound bar on the TV to stun. It is amazing. I wore it for the first night to get use to the controls so I could set it up for her because I knew she would deny she needed it. What I found out, I wanted one. I listened to music and found that I could hear EVERY LYRIC. Amazing. So I took it w me to the Keith Urban concert and was elated w my great sound and poor seats. Believe me, the Staples Center is not know for the sound quality. It is no Hollywood Bowl. So my mom is using them and the family is no longer hostage to the TV but I may have to get my own!!!
