TV Ears Saved My Marriage

The ad assured me that at least for one happy customer their marriage was now back on track to be the domestic bliss envisioned that fateful day however many years ago this aging wife stood wearing white, looking up at her Prince Charming while one of God's conduits blessed their union.

Just what were these magical TV Ears that had that kind of power to keep the bliss in domestic cohabitation?  I read further than the gotcha headline and learned that Dad had a hearing loss.  So he would turn up the volume on the TV so he could hear.  Meanwhile his family suffered because they were still blessed with perfect hearing.  It was destroying the family not being able to happily enjoy TV together.

I read on.  Over one million satisfied customers.  Better Business ranking of A+.  And to really set the hook - Proudly made in the US of A.

Awesome.

Of course, the new and improved models are a bit smaller now, looking like those hokey ear pieces handed out on airplanes years ago.  I should probably anty up and get a set put in the mail for me.  I, or rather my lovely wife and daughter have told me I am going deaf.  I think it is more they are just becoming overly sensitive to sound.  I hear fine.  Turn it up to wow I say.  I will say though, if I did buy a set, it would in no way save my marriage.  That ship is on its own, sink or swim, through thick and thin, for twenty years it has teetered on the rim.  Personally I like living on the edge even though one day my long suffering wife will probably push me off.  TV Ears will not save me.

Normally I'd make a vaguely snarky comment, but as my hearing lessens as the years roll on by, I am going to turn up my teevee too.

Do the TV ears come with bullshit protectors/deflectors??

In Montana I installed a headphone jack in the TV so I could watch it early in the morning before Marie woke up.

You can to the same with a number of pairs of them and then each person can set their own volume.

Write louder, I can't hear you. I do like the head set though.

Dang, wish I had heard of these years ago. Could have saved me a lot of money on hearing aids.
