As my audiologist said, "Hearing aids are wonderful: You can hear everything. But they're terrible, too: You can hear everything!"
Ain't it the truth: In a group conversation, the words you want to hear are often masked by the other conversations going on around you.
The more gain you build into your circuit, the more that extraneous conversations will intrude, and will mask what your B-I-L needs to hear.
And the device will have to be worn outside of clothing, so the microphone isn't subject to clothing rustles.
BTW: The gain-per-frequency profile for him is very similar to mine, although greater.

The frequency gain is adjustable; I have the gain set high right now, but hopefully it's higher than he'll need and I can adjust it down.
Then, the situation with my B-I-L is quite dynamic - one day it's one thing, the next day it may be something else. As of this morning because of the situation on his end, I'm going to suspend this project until I see what shakes out - you just never know. But at this point, there's not much point moving forward until I see where we're going.
We don't have a gun problem in the US, We have a people problem.
The problem we have is people that want to kill large numbers innocent people
in Gun Free Zones.
