Honestly? I used to HATE it when people noticed my hearing aid back in the day. Now, being an adult, it is a part of me. Without it I can't hear almost at all. With it I still face issues but its still enough to help me get around where I need to.
I would definitely wait til this thing becomes more advanced, more research is done with it. Til then I'll stick with my hearing aid. I am curious about a CI though.
