My only complaint is that in restaurants or other noisy environments, I can hear everyone behind me clearly but I can't hear people in front of me. This, even in "party mode," which is supposed to sharpen the pickup pattern so as to eliminate background noise.

I went to a somewhat dodgy outfit because they were offering a special deal. I felt really uncomfortable with the salesman, (and he did come across as a salesman, rather than an audiologist), so followed the advice of a cousin who had a hearing disability and went to a different audiologist. They discussed my lifestyle and found hearing aids to suit me, rather than trying to fit me to the hearing aids. It made a crucial difference.
