    What jobs can you do with hearing loss?

    Naida H.A.

    Ok... I have returned the Naida III. Just before I returned it...I tried to give it one last chance. Guess what: It died. I don't know what happened but it just gave out. I've decided not to go for the Naida V because I can't afford the $2,500.00. My audie wants me to try a more powerful...
