‘The World Sounds Different’
For years, I experienced the daily noise of machinery within industrial food plants. Although I was active in hearing testing of employees and noise abatement programs in factory settings, I, too, have suffered hearing loss. I have been tested and diagnosed with hearing loss in both ears, for which I then received quotes for unaffordable hearing aids. Over-the-counter and TV-ad amplifiers did not help.
My wife gave me an article to read from Hopkins Medicine magazine, featuring Access HEARS [“Loud & Clear,” Winter 2019]. I figured it couldn’t hurt to try. Maybe it would help?
I met with Khoi Le and Josiah Yiu to discuss the possibilities. After [I had] a brief trial of a “Sidekick,” we decided to purchase a pair of them. The results have been outstanding! Not only do I hear better but am more confident that I am hearing correctly the first time.
Josiah’s follow-up and support have been great.
The world sounds different. What an improvement! I hope that this program is expanded so that more seniors are able to be educated about and make use of this wonderful more affordable technology. Thank you for raising awareness through Hopkins Medicine Magazine.
