Good afternoon.

Thanks to those users who responded to my request, you have certainly given me food for thought.  I may come back to one or two of you off list.

I would have a set of speakers as headphones can rub against the ears making them red and possibly sore. There is also a risk of infection but then again that's the case even without hearing aids. Good luck.

At the moment I am wearing one hearing aid but at some time in the next couple of months will be wearing two.  I should appreciate guidance from those members in a similar position, e.g. should I be plugged into the computer or have a set of speakers to enable me to carry out my work.  Any help will be appreciated.
