I wonder if any of you have ever searched for hearing aids that are
especially good for listening to music.

My current aids are Oticon DigiFocus bought in 1997 and they are good,
but not as good as listening via headphones to stereo.  At concerts
(classical music usually), I have a dilemma of whether to leave them on
and hear an over loud sound with excess volume from the highs or to
take them off and have a more natural beautiful sound at the price of
losing quieter passages and quieter instruments.

I gather that the modern hearing aids are optimized for speech and no
attention has been given to reproducing music well.  I hope some brand
is good for music.

Thanks.  Dan
