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.
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.
I thought I knew nothing about inbox zero, so therefore I knew everything about it?
I don't know about that.
One thing that I do know I know (or, at least, I think so) is that I'm not interested in yet another blob of faddish cr@p, so my inbox-interaction-processes will remain unchanged until something actually useful comes along to replace them.

Government can give you nothing but what it takes from somebody else. A government big enough to give you everything you want is big enough to take everything you've got, including your freedom.-Ezra Taft Benson
You must accept 1 of 2 basic premises: Either we are alone in the universe or we are not alone. Either way, the implications are staggering!-Wernher von Braun
But wait! I thought giving names to crap I've been doing for 40 years was gonna fix the software life cycle problems and make it possible to deliver software bug-free, on time, and at/below budget, thus eliminating the "crunch culture".
