My hearing problem has slowly gotten worse over the past twenty five years. Because of the slow deterioration, I didn’t appreciate what I was missing. The effectiveness of the hearing aid far exceeded my expectations. For instance, the Charlotte Symphony performed recently with the Oratoria Singers. Besides “hearing” these two groups, there was not a note that I missed from a guest alto violinist. Same with all of the high pitched male and female vocalists. The list of “Joys” relative to hearing clearly could go on and on, but to mention one – it sure is nice to converse freely with Betsy – i.e. no problem hearing her high pitched voice!! Again, many thanks for your professional advice, etc. This has proven to be one of the best investments I have ever made!
