Hi Charles

It is impossible to recommend a particular kind/brand of hearing aid without knowing more about you and your hearing loss! When discussing a new hearing aid with your audiologist, be sure to mention that you spend a lot of time on the telephone so a hearing aid with a telephone program, or assistive devices designed to amplify telephonic conversations would be beneficial.
