It could be the sounds of nature while we are gardening. Of course, we are nearly to the Winter Solstice in the Northern Hemisphere so many us are not gardening or even outdoors much.
When you are doing some things, maybe solitary maybe shared, entertainment or informational, what is it likely to be?
My use of hearing aids began in the 1980's. Recently, I acquired new ones and they can be connected by Bluetooth to my phone. So, they are like earbuds. For me, as for many young people, music was important during my teens and early adulthood. That changed with hearing loss and hearing aids didn't do much to put music back to any importance.
Indoor exercise brought back some of the desire to listen to music. I find exercise for exercise's sake, boring repetition, repetition, repetition ... Might I please have some distraction? Wow. The new hearing aids provide it! Mostly, it is with instrumentals or primarily instrumentals. That's okay with me since that was much of the music of my youth and, hey, the beat helps with the repetition .
I have been trying alittle radio listening – a station that I haven't listened to for 30+ years. It hasn't been that long ago for Talk Radio and I may be able to go back to that. But, there are also podcasts now! The Bluetooth is primarily or totally through Apple devices, I'm not really sure. Television watching hasn't improved much with me still reading captioning but I may be able to cast shows on to screens or use the iPad, that i otherwise find so little use for. What do you suggest? I fear that I missing out!
