as a person with hearing problems you are absolutely right. The other problem I had was they kept slipping off my hair so I have given up on them.

Hi David, I have no experience of using Aftershockz with hearing aids but my experience of them as a person with normal (ish) hearing would lead me to conclude that they would not be great for someone with any degree of hearing loss, particular in environments where there is a high level of ambient noise. For one thing they leave the ears open to that noise. for another they don’t crank up to a particularly high volume level.

I wonder if anybody is able to give some feedback as to how loud Aftershock headphones are and whether they would be in any way suitable for someone with a hearing impairment.
I find using travel apps on my iPhone difficult at the moment as in noisy traffic environments I have to take a hearing aid out, and then insert an earphone into the phone in order to hear what is going on.
I can normally manage with the volume on an iPhone with normal earphones/headphones as long as they are not really quiet models and providing my phone is set at maximum volume.
It occurs to me that the conductive Aftershock model may suit me better as they do not involve taking hearing aids out, that is providing that they are not low volume and quiet.
