And it just makes me wonder every time I click on a so-and-so HA website, why are all these people (in ads) so over joyed to be wearing new hearing aids? I mean has anyone really seen someone walking out of a audiologist’s office or hearing specialist’s studio with a really big smile on their face after buying expensive hearing aids? Not me, especially for first time users.
Now that’s not to say that some/many aid users aren’t pleasantly surprisedly to see an improvement in their hearing when trading in their old aid for a better replacement. That’s certainly a good feeling, but I don’t know if its a “eureka moment”. And I’m not talking about someone who is deaf, who has a CI turned on for the first time. Now that is a “Aha Moment”.
Just wish all these HA manufactures would cut out all these paid smiling models who seem over joyed to be wearing a piece of plastic in their ear(s). It ain’t that way in really life but then again “image is everything”.
