I've had these since April and now it's September. It was not that easy getting used to them, mainly due to irritation in the ear canals. You do get used to it though. The boost for me was the ability to keep track of conversations in crowded, echoey meeting rooms. One on one, my hearing isn't that bad yet. Interesting finds: the ear pieces do not always take a charge in the same amount. Many times I've had one dead one and one nearly so. A cleaning (important) and a recharge solve that. The ear pieces and the charger are a work of art. I've also discovered that a retracted mechanical drafting pencil (I use 0.9 mm) tip is exactly the right size to lightly scrape out earwax from the mesh input.
Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
