1-Don't go cheap on the hearing aid. Cheap ones have too much background noise, sound like crap and you won't use it. My dad is there right now.
2-I recall a friend going through this some years ago. If your problem is like his, with 1 side much worse, there is another route to take, MONO. With 1 side out of whack, the soundstage will suck and you will miss a great deal of what was intended. With mono, you won't get the depth and width but will get the full signal and enjoy the beauty. Please let me know if this makes listening more enjoyable.
My parents discovered I was hearing impaired when I was three years old. It has not prevented me from enjoying music and being an audiophile for the past sixty years. Yes, I wear hearing aids. Finding a good audiologist that will work with you is the key, one that is attuned to working with professional musicians. You will find the analogue vs digital battle going on in the hearing aid field. If you go digital, find an audiologist that will let you do the tweaking of the instruments yourself using the NOAH software. Mead Killion Founder of ETYMOTIC RESEARCH,an audio engineer has been doing work in 'high fidelity' hearing instruments for over forty years. I first came to know of him in the seventies. Go to the web and you will find tons of stuff about him, truly a genius. No your days are not over, you just need to manage the problem.
