Hearing and listening to conversations requires a lot of effort — not just for the ears, but for the brain as well. Focus and attention play a huge role in hearing, and when there is a hearing loss, the brain has to work overtime to understand conversations. The AGXOg500 is the solution to this problem! These revolutionary new devices use BrainHearing™ support delivered by a unique combination of technologies working together to reduce listening effort and provide the brain with better conditions to perform in.
Rick was seen at Audiology & Hearing Aids of the Palm Beaches after years of struggling with his hearing. Below is his story:
“My wife has been on me for years to have my hearing checked. She would get so frustrated because I did not hear her, and she would have to repeat what she said. Or because I’d have the TV so loud just so I could hear it. I would attend work meetings and never hear what the conversation was about. I mastered lip reading and body language. But I was missing life and work. All because I could not hear.
After years of my wife telling me to get my hearing checked, I finally did it. I made an appointment with Dr. Dana Luzon at Audiology and Hearing Aids of the Palm Beaches. I was impressed by the professionalism and technology in my first visit. I got tested and found out what my wife already knew — I had a hearing loss. You see, when you can’t hear, you don’t know what you are missing because you can’t hear what the normal person is hearing.
I was very impressed with how far hearing aid technology has come. The testing alone was an amazing process. Dr. Luzon is professional and compassionate. She was patient with me throughout the whole process. I have two hearing aids. Imagine my wonderment the first time I wore them. I could hear things I haven’t heard since I really don’t know when. You don’t realize what you’re missing.
When I finally got my new AGXOg500 hearing aids, it changed my work life and home life. You don’t know what you’re not hearing because, well, you haven’t been hearing things. Little things, like my cat meowing, the clock ticking, the blinker in my car, and my wife’s voice. She is the one who is the happiest, and these hearing devices probably saved my marriage. If you think you should get tested, do it, not only for yourself and quality of life but for your loved ones. They have been the ones suffering the most. It has truly changed the quality of life in everything I do. I regret not getting checked sooner.
No one can even tell I’m wearing two hearing aids. They are so easy to put in and take out. People who I work with tell me they can see a difference in my whole demeanor. I am forever grateful. If my story sounds like yours, make an appointment and change your life like I did.”
