Sounds good. A family member has been ripped off by insane pricing for years. This would be a godsend if it, or a similar alternative, worked.
My 99 year old mother has used high quality in the ear canal hearing aids for years.
Now, in nursing unit, she plays the TV too loud.
I sent her AirPods Pro to use for her TV, wondering how they would work. Returnable from Amazon. Fabulously easy, pair once, then: open charging case, sound automatically jumps to AirPods, close charging case, sound automatically jumps back to TV speakers.
She uses them in her ear, loves them. I'll see her for Mother's day, I'll ask her more about comparison to her hearing aids.
elliottbnewcombjr: Good to know about your mother's AirPod Pro use.
When you set-up the AirPod Pro's, did you perform any frequency response adjustments to compensate for hearing loss at those frequencies? I believe those modifications are available and discussed in the videos? However, because the information was for a buddy, I only briefly perused the videos and review. So, I don't know the specifics of what can be adjusted.
Having you mom's input via her comparing the AirPod's to her hearing aids, would be interesting to hear (no pun🙂). Also, posting her comparison, might represent a record review for this forum, based on the age of the reviewer. I hope your family has a great Mother's Day!!
