Hearing aids

My father now requires hearing aids and he continues to be very active including spending time sailing with me. His current hearing aids cause him all manner of issues when sailing (and cycling) with whistling, wind noise constantly in his ears. There are a few products that claim to solve this problem but so far we’ve had no luck.

Does anyone know of or use a hearing aid that works in such conditions?



 Thanks for your attention

A sweat band, worn to cover the ears is said to break up the air flow and lessen the whistling. I am looking to my friends who knit or crochet for one or two. I have not, as yet, tested this.

Re: Hearing aids

A good hearing aid with digital signal processing would with the wind noise but will not full eliminate it. Moving to an in the canal might also help. Depending on loss there are some very small All in the canal on the market now as well.
