If you are only talking on the phone or streaming music to it... maybe. It all depends on the loss. I would need to raise the highs quite a bit without blowing my brains (what is left) out with the lows. If high frequency loss is bad enough, HA's do frequency lowering (some have fancy names for it) to cope. I use my phone app, to select from 4 built in programs (HA programs) and 4 that I created (just mods of the built ins). I can also adjust noise canceling, wind noise, and other stuff. If I need GPS while driving, my phone streams to the aids, helping comprehension greatly.
HA's are getting smarter with, Ta-Da, AI. I think there are a couple that will phone home if you fall down.
HA's are like using your favorite Javascript framework, or Marc's arm floaties. They assist, they don't fixSmile | :)
Edit: I feel no stigma with hearing aids, most people don't even notice them.
If you can keep your head while those about you are losing theirs, perhaps you don't understand the situation.
