    Hearing Protection with Hearing Aid/Implant

    Hey Guys,

    Anyone here got a hearing aid or implant? What kind of hearing protections do you guys use?

    Asking since standard over the ear headsets press the hearing aid/implant into your skull.

    Thanks!

    When you say "implant", do you mean a cochlear implant or are you just referring to a custom earmould on a conventional hearing aid?

    I have to remove my hearing aids as I tend to get a bit of feedback squelch with normal over ear protection. Mine are pretty small behind the ear and dont get caught up.

    My hearing aids are 'behind the ear', and I take 'em out, so I can use earplugs under the 'muffs.
    Only when doing targets/gongs.
    Ear muff 'over ear cavities/seals' don't squash the AIDS against my head.
    Plugs and muffs really isolate you though - can't always hear comments/commands.

    Cochlear implant. If I put in-ear (earphone) protection, the sound from the rifle makes me flinch, and if I turn it off, I can't hear the range operator when doing snap applications. Was wondering if there was like an over-sized headset that muffles the sound of the shots, but still allows me to hear the range operator.

    Is it both ears? Or could you use an insert in the damaged ear and an electronic muff on the other?

    If you're getting a "flinch" from air-conducted sound on your implant ear, you sound to have a fair bit of residual hearing on that side. While uncommon, it's possible. I can't understand what exactly it is you're putting in your ear that's causing the flinch.

    Feel free to PM me your audiogram and a more detailed description of what gear you've tried, and I'll have a think about it.
