Restaurants - Was out to dinner with a group (6 total) Friday night with a loud band in the next room. Though I did miss some words, I was pretty much able to have conversation all around. Overall, in crowds/groups, i understand more. Can't tell you how that compares to "normal" since I don't really remeber what normal is suppose to be. I do check in with DW when I miss stuff to see if she is having the same issue (she hears well-at least compared to me) and my overall scores are up.
Background noise is less of a problem, it seems masked/filtered out.

CSI is one of the shows I had a lot of problem with. The little blond in CSI-Miami particularly. Now I can understand more, enought to get the conversation. Fox's 24 still needs to be loud for me, but at least it's down to a level my wife can tolerate.

Thanks for the alt.support.hearing-loss link. I'm going to check it out.

Hope that helps,

Andy
