"It's nice to sleep at night and have silence, but when I wake up in the morning, the first thing I do is put my hearing aids in. I get to hear the birds, I get to hear the normal things in life that you don't realize you're missing. It has changed my life completely. My family is happier with me. You don't want to hear "what, what?", "say that again". Many of my friends know I wear hearing aids. I've recommended customers to you because I just love your service, and I can't say anything more about it."

"I don't want to say life altering, but it has been a big change. I didn't get them prior, when I was working, because I worked in a school kitchen and there was a lot of noise around, and once I retired my husband said it was time to do it. We came to visit you and it's been incredible.

 

It's been incredible. I've been hearing things that I didn't hear before. I'm in on conversations that I don't have to lean in and strain. I recently had jury duty and it made a big difference with that because you can hear what's going on around you, and you don't feel left out, and it's been incredible for me. And it's probably better for him too."

"A lot less repeating and being frustrated and avoiding some arguments. It's been a big help."

"If I knew then what I know now, I might not have worn them at work with the loud machinery and everything, but then the ability to be able to hear people talking and not the constant "what?", "excuse me?", "what did you say?", I would have done it a lot sooner. It was hard in the beginning because I was hearing everything, it was almost like overload - my quiet little world had expanded.

 

We walk, we do a lot of walking. I was hearing birds I wasn't hearing before. You hear, just, all kinds of things, and it's been terrific.

 

I would say to anybody, if you're thinking about doing it, give it a try. And give it a while because, like doctor explained to me, it's going to take some tweaking, it's going to take some changing. And a lot of it is just changing on your part as excepting this is normal. I didn't hear that before, now I'm hearing it. It's been terrific."

[Without hearing aids]

" Oh my goodness! My life would be down the drain because I wouldn't be able to do all the social things I do. Plus, I work in the hospital 2 days a week. I wouldn't be able to hear any of the patients or anything. I would be miserable.

 

I belong to 2 senior groups and I run the whole kitchen on the one senior group and the other I just do every little thing. I couldn't do this - I couldn't do any of this.

 

It's definitely a necessity. Even my children. I have a 16-people family, and I go away with them. If I didn't hear what they were saying, I'd be going "What, what, what?" - they wouldn't be too happy.

 

In fact, my daughter is the one who talked me into getting it ten years ago because I never heard her.

 

I've always had good hearing aids. I really did. My hearing aids have been very good."
