We had no idea, but we had come prepared with ear protection. No concert is worth damaging hearing.

The clattering of the cutlery, booming music, and buzz of other people’s conversations overpower the voice of my dining companion. It’s our anniversary, but the dinner feels anything but romantic. If only my hearing aids helped me hone in on the voice I wanted to hear, blocking the rest of the noise from my auditory  The post New Tool Helps Isolate Voices in Noisy Spaces appeared first on Living With Hearing Loss ..read more

One of my favorite things to do is to talk about hearing loss! I guess that comes with the territory as an advocate. Considering hearing aids? Come sit by me. I am happy to share my experiences.

The same goes for policy makers who have historically left hearing care out of many public insurance plans.  The post Changing Mindsets about Hearing Loss appeared first on Living With Hearing Loss ..read more
