I'm a middle aged man with a profound hearing loss.  My hearing aids
amplify sound pretty good, but my speech recognition is not good,
especially when conversing with someone over 6 ft. away.

I'm starting vocational  school classes next week, and I'm concerned
about understanding the instructor.  Outside of expensive FM and loop
systems, what assisted listening device might help me?.......something
like the Pocketalker Pro?, or..............?
