    Would she wear them? If it's not something she's been used to wearing, she might be resistant.

    Getting her hearing tested and aids fitted to her loss is free, if she goes through the NHS. Connevans and Action on Hearing Loss both offer a range of hearing devices.

    Yes, but would she wear them? I absolutely HATE wearing headphones!

    Although one of my siblings has bought some bone conduction headphones, which I could possibly tolerate. Just didn't like the price ...

    Bone conduction headphones are the best available, they sit on the bone outside the front of the ear, the sound is superb
