Okay, the pricey little devil finally arrived, and I've got it stuck in my ear at this very moment. Sheese, how do you people stand the noise. My keyboard rattles like a stake bed truck filled with tee posts and assorted scrap iron. Handling a piece of paper sounds like an avalanche. I can also hear Ray Charles - not bad for an old guy.

. Audiologically speaking, it is a noisy world out there. Supposedly, we learn to deal with the noise as the rest of you do. On the downside, we lose our almost psychic ability to fill in the missing words in conversation. We'll also probably lose our unconsciously developed rudimentary lip reading skills. It's going to be hard to break the habit of staring at peoples' lips when they talk, but we take the good with the bad.
