I totally agree with you....the only way I can hear with my CI at a not so noisy restaurant is to plug in my microphone clip and have the other person talk right into it.
Bebonang is correct....I was hearing, bars with lot's of people and loud music is difficult even for a hearing person. Shouting is very common.
LOL SO right! Restaurants usually arent that bad, so I've done well with my AB UltraZoom at a lowered sensitivity setup. At nightclubs and concerts? Forget It! Talk is brief, I just use body language to make my point, if we need to talk, we'd take it to an isolated area or a restaurant after leaving the place.
