Remember, just because you have hearing aids (or cochlear implants) doesn't mean you're suddenly "cured" and can now "hear" like a hearing person.
Sure, you can hear better... but does it mean you can understand better? No. Understanding takes time. At first, a lot of sounds may not be familiar and it takes time for you to recognize what those sounds are.
I have one hearing aid and I hear very well, but I do sometimes struggle with understanding what I'm hearing if it's not said clearly. That's why I combine my listening skills with lipreading.
If a person speaks clearly, then I can understand that person without reading lips. However, if that person has an accent that I'm not very familiar with or speaks at a different tone (faster, slowly, higher, lower, mumble, etc)... I may not understand that either. It varies.
