“I have to be honest with you,” said Rochelle. “I’m already wearing demo hearing aids from another clinic that tested my hearing last week and, honestly, if this is what hearing aids sound like, I’m not interested.”
Rochelle had a unique hearing loss, dissimilar to the typical, age-related results that make up 80% of hearing clinic clients. Treating her as though she is “typical” instead of unique would not bear fruit for her or for her clinician.
“The clinic I went to last week told me that these are the kind of hearing aids I need and that they cost $5,000.00. But they sound awful. I wouldn’t pay $500.00 for them.”
I love being a part of the hearing aid business. Particularly as a part of UberHearing™. I love that we help people to hear.
Every now and again a viral video will make the rounds on social media showing something profound - like people who have never heard before hearing for the first time thanks to the technology available via cochlear implants. What we do is not so dramatic. But we know the dramatic impact of doing nothing.
