    Walker I have no experience with. I did have a "game ear" type ear peice and I didn't like it. It picked up everything, trains, planes and automobiles. But like I said it was not a walkers. So not sure how they work.

    So in short......I cant help[:D]

    Yup found a couple "mis-priced" last season. David has serious hearing issues. He noted no difference in the Walker than in a cheapy I got for about $15. The only difference I saw was the Walker had less of a wind effect in my ear. I could block it out after a few minutes with the cheap one. I was offered 3xs what I paid for them and gladly got rid of them. Of course everyone is different, but we didnt see any big difference worth the $ of the Walker.

    Buckey.. see if you can find one used... may sound gross.. but they can be cleaned... Have you had your hearing checked? Try Sears I think they have free hearing tests. Your insurance may pay for a hearing aid.

    yes I have had my hearing checked by an audioligest (dont know about that spelling) my hearing is pretty bad when I was 14 me and a friend was wrestleing and another friend was poking a branch at us and it went inside my ear and popped my ear drum lost 50% in that ear and working in the plant hasent helped. suprisingly I can hear certain frequencys real well and some are all but gone. I have learned to hunt real well with my eyes to compensate I will usually spot deer befor others because of the hearing loss. but man I hate when I hear nothing look down and there is a deer That just freaks me out. now I'm pinned.[B)]

    I have been interested in these as well. Is there a good brand of hearing device that is honest to goodness WORTH having?
