She is planning to wear it in the immediate future? At some future date? Any kind of congenital hearing issue relevant? Occupational situation? Is she a model? Does she have a particularly-shaped-or-sized ear and thus is a good candidate for testing the fit of hearing aids? Will it be a functional hearing aid?

Will she have it switched on?
Will she be wearing it in her ear in the usual way?
Will she be trying to listen to something very quiet?
Does she expect to experience a sudden loss of hearing?

Nimue - very good puzzle. Got me thinking!
1) Is she trying to listen to two noises at the same time?
2) Is she trying to pick up distinctive noises that are inaudible to the human ear?

Ah rats there goes my brilliant theory that Frederica was an actress and would be playing a character who wore a hearing aid in the next play she did!

My son has a different slant on the matter .... does "Frederica's hearing is fine" refer to a court hearing?
