sorry for deleteing too soon. No offence but didnt see any interest. My question is does anyone use headphones and/or headphone amps to help their hearing loss? Mine is severe. nothing above 1khz. You can imagine not hearing above 1khz. NOT GOOD. I tried headhones from my cd layer headphone output with vol control and got mildly better sound due to direct input to ears. Any info is welcome and appreciated.
