For quiet a while now I think my hearing has been getting worse. I noticed it when I had to turn the sound up on the TV. Over the month I have had to keep turning it up a notch or two —— until there were no notches left and pictures were falling off the walls in the lounge.
We have a relatively new big screen TV, but why do they put the speakers facing out the back ? That must be part of the problem, but, if I sit behind the TV I won’t be able to see the picture. Then somebody told me about sound bars. I thought that must be a new room at the pub, but apparently it is a new gadget to enhance sound quality. So I got one and that helped for a while.
Nonetheless I still found thar some actors were mumbling or whispering a lot, usually at some critical part of the film, which ment I lost the plot and the had no idea what was going on 😩 Finally as a last desperate attempt to correct my hearing impairment I visited the GP surgery and asked the nurse to syringe my ears.
That helped enormously —- for a while. But now again I am having to turn the sound up again 😥😥😥😥😥😥😥
Then I read a front page article in The Times about the “thousands of complaints from people unable to hear the dialogue in dramas”. Apparently.”Questions were even asked in Parliament “, although I don’t know what on earth MP’s are doing watching TV when they should be sorting out Brexit.
Evidently it is the BBC that is responsible for me thinking I am going deaf. Well not just the BBC, but ITV, Channel 4 and Channel 5 . I’ll bet they are raking in a fortune from all the adverts for hearing aids that you see on TV !
