“The great tragedy of science - the slaying of a beautiful hypothesis by an ugly fact.”
Thomas Huxley, Scientist (1825-95).

Apparently Denmark, population fewer than 6 million, supplies over half the world’s hearing aids. Copenhagen based GN has worked with Apple Inc. to develop a blue tooth device aimed at taking the stigma out of wearing a hearing aid. They have produced a device that when installed in the ear allows users to directly stream voice and music from their iPhone. As Hamlet Prince of Denmark said, give everyman thy ear but few thy voice. Not cheap but with over 360 million people having some form of hearing impairment it will be interesting to see if this type of product is to be or not to be.
