I’m excited, I don’t know even how to explain it….. I’m just lucky! It’s amazing how I can hear balanced and much better within noisy areas such as restaurants. I just “hear better”.
Having had a severe hearing loss in one ear and profound to no hearing in my other ear, I didn’t realize the potential of hearing sound from my poor ear ever again. Now, my husband can whisper in my poor ear and I hear him just fine! I can sense where sounds are coming from different directions. In the past, I had to look around to search for what was making a sound. Now, it’s much better. I can even use my poor ear, the one that has the BiCros device, on the phone. It transmits the sound received on my poor side to my better ear. What’s also so cool is that I can adjust them using my iPhone and stream music, phone calls, and videos wirelessly!
I wasn’t sure what to expect at first but It’s so true, my brain changes the sound input from both sides so it actually sounds like I’m hearing from my bad side. WOW!!
I love stories like this…. in how meaningful digital hearing aid technology can help someone reach a potential, of what was unknown. There are so many possibilities to help people to hear better, especially when the ear has such severe nerve damage.
