What People Are Hearing
Hi Greg, Just so you know: I can hear the birds outside my window. I can hear my mouse (computer). I thought my mouse was silent! I can hear the background rhythms of the music on the car radio. I can hear my doorbell â€“ even with my head in an upstairs cupboard. And you were right! Two hearing aids are noticeably better than one. When I lost one, I wasnâ€™t bothering with the single I had left. Thanks so much for your caring and your help.~ Roberta
Greg â€“ Holy Cow! Itâ€™s a whole new world!!! Todayâ€™s been a day of observations: Andreas and I were able to actually have a mini conversation between rooms in the house today; something which hasnâ€™t happened for about ten years. I could â€śchatâ€ť with him FROM THE PORCH while he got into the car to go to the game this evening (not sure if weâ€™ve ever been able to do that, but itâ€™s definitely been so long I canâ€™t remember.) I could hear sirens in the distance. I heard the music at the store in the mall. I heard my phone buzzing on the table, the microwave beeping, the plane(s) overhead. The directionality thingy works like a charm, as does the noise compression. Incredible.
Iâ€™ve also notice that sometimes I enjoy a quiet world. The keys in the door, the slamming of the screen, my footsteps on the lino, the humming of the fridge, the dripping of the last few drops of water down the sink, the clicking of the keyboard as I type right now seem very loud indeed and Iâ€™m tempted to take the aids out just to get some peace.
But no way. Not yet. So far, so amazingâ€¦ just thought Iâ€™d let you know.
Iâ€™m looking forward to work tomorrow.~ Caroline
Weâ€™re always amazed by what you hear.
