Cros/BiCros, Adhear bone conduction device, or Bose Hearphones.  I am tired of this single sided world.  I miss so much.  I haven't done any thing since my Soundbite six years ago which broke soon after the company bankrupted.  I work in an environment that is quiets and I can hear others fine since I work one on one in a small room.  It is really my social life I am interested in. Background noise is a real issue as such in restaurants and places where multiple conversations are going on. Listening to the tv is also an issue.  Talking on a phone I hear fine but the issue is that I am using the "good" ear and have no clue as to what is happening around me. While driving in my car I can not hear my passengers because I only hear the road noise.  I am tech literate so that isn't an issue. I am wondering if anybody else has compared these three options and can have input that will make my search a little less cumbersome.

I've had the bose hearphones for about 6 weeks now. They work well in some environments. In others I hear better without them. in other words, they create a problem more than help at times. You can order them from Amazon and return them if they don't work out for you. Ive kept mine because they play beautiful music more than helping with my hearing problem.

I’ve had Bose hearphones for 6 month. They are helpful in noisy places like restaurant, but not that good as expected. It definetly enhance conversation in some cases, but I wouldn’t say it makes dramatic changes. However it is really great as noise cancelling earphones. It is very helpful in phone call in any places. You can stay with low noise in any places. I always bring it out for this reason. You know, we often be tired in loud noise environment.

I became deaf on the right side, thought many times to buy Bose earphones but then decided to push myself with whatever I am left with. It has been 2 and a half month since I was operated and so far, I am managing well. In the beginning it was very irritating during group conversations but situation is somewhat better now.

Maybe my post is not a direct answer to your question, however, I intended to say to give yourself more time maybe your hearing sense will adjust.
