You said: I have some hearing in either ear.

If you are planning to use a cochlear implant in one ear and have some hearing in the other ear, there are many reasons to continue to use a hearing aid in your other ear. Your hearing aid provides loudness and sound with depth. Your cochlear implant gives you greater clarity. When the devices work together, they can provide the rich sound you want and the speech understanding you need.
