Now I'm curious as to which came first - the under-ear style or the over-ear style. I'd imagine the hearing aid to be the predecessor to all things stuck into your canal. How did people wear the first hearing aids?
Imagine what it'd be like if the over-ears style became the norm for everyone from the very beginning. I'd think that, somehow, the world would have been a whole different place entirely.
If I recall correctly my Aunty Brenda's hearing aid was more closer to the over ear style. That could be why people don't like wearing over ears lol :P.
