Headphones versus Hearing Aids

August 02, 2021

I’ve had a set of Apple AirPods for four years now. They see daily use for a variety of purposes.

Recently I started wearing hearing aids. The devices I have are “behind the ear” meaning there is an inch long, semi-curved device resting on the back of both of my ears. There is also a thin, clear plastic tube the goes over the top of my ear, which leads to a small soft plastic dome inside my ear canal.

Wearing headphones and hearing aids at the same time is tricky.
