Whether or not a hearing aid is right for you depends on the type of loss you have and the configuration of the aid. Losses are typically categorized as mild, moderate, severe, and profound. There are two types of losses: conductive and sensorineural. Conductive means the sound isn’t getting in to the auditory nerve (blocked by fluid, bad ear bones, or some other physical condition). Sensorineural means that once the sound GETS to the nerve, the nerve is not functioning at 100 %. BTE hearing aids work well for both types of losses.

I don’t have any personal experience with this aid (I wear Oticon Syncros) That being said, GN makes pretty good products. The Resound Metrix is a state of the art BTE aid with some pretty good background noise minimizing technology which means you will be able to hear speech in noisy environments (car, restaurants) better than with aids with older technology.

These are an “open fit” aid which means that you don’t wear these with a custom ear mold. This also means, however, that the range of loss that they will work with is in the less severe category. You want to make sure with your audiologist that your range of hearing loss is appropriate for the open fit solution.

Remember, almost every state has laws saying that if you aren’t happy with the hearing aids you can return them for a refund (maybe not ALL of your $ $ , but some) so make sure you are really happy with this in the timeframe that is prescribed in your state, and you won’t be out several thousand $ $ if you don’t like them.
