    Mayor Michael Bloomberg is not all ears when it comes to discussing reports of him being spotted sporting a hearing aid on Wednesday.

    The mayor, who turns 68 next week was seen in a Daily News photo wearing flesh colored devices in each of his ears while visiting the construction site of the No. 7 train. He wore them again at a homeland security meeting with U.S. Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano.

    When asked about the photograph, Bloomberg, who was not wearing the hearing aids at an event today in the Bronx, joked: "I couldn't hear what you had to say."

    Bloomberg's spokesperson did not return our request for comment.
