People may not notice but…
I actually can’t hear! Recently I was told that I have lost hearing in both ears but to be honest, I thought it was a blessing. Who doesn’t want an excuse to ignore people? I have always found it a little difficult to understand what people are saying, but now I can stick a label on it. MATE I’M ACTUALLY KINDA DEAF!
So I thought I should review my new advanced hearing aids. I say advanced because they speak to me. YES, and it’s not in my head. There’s a welcome melody when I put them in, they DING when I place headphones over them, and they even tell me when the battery is low!
When I initially put in the comfortable Starkey (CIC) hearing aids – BLUE for left and RED for right – I realised how quiet life has been. I can hear people in the next room. SUPER EARS! The only trouble I have been having is that they don’t like certain people. I could be having a lovely conversation with my friend Petra, and her brother might butt in to talk about STAR WARS. My hearing aids have feelings, and I know that, because they purposely block him out, which is good, because I don’t like Star Wars (controversial). Thanks guys!
Being blessed with small ears has it’s drawbacks. My aids aren’t hidden so well, which is a shame, but my hair covers them anyway. There has always been a stigma attached to wearing hearing aids, but finally, in the year 2015, people don’t care (or at least I don’t think so). And if you need a little help, these aids have opened me up to a brand new world. They may not be completely discreet, but why do they need to be? Why do I need to be? JUST HEAR ME OUT. Glasses became trendy so why can’t these?
