While some people work to conceal their hearing instruments from public view, many of those wearing behind-the-ear Bluetooth headsets often prefer to show off their devices; yet, these devices are more alike than they are different. Each is a high-tech, hands-free device that is designed to be worn around, behind, or in the ear, and both can work with a telephone. If anything, the hearing instrument is the more sophisticated of the two because it can be programmed for various listening environments, cancel out background noise, manage feedback, reduce impulse noise, and separate sound signals into discrete frequencies. Considering all this, you’d think that hearing-instrument users would be proud to display their high-tech devices. It’s all about attitude.
