you need a sixth sense to revive your hearing ?
Life takes us by surprise every day. Like 76 year old MR. CHANDRASEKHAR,
who was facing hearing difficulties at a time when usually he would
love to hear the chirping of birds and the gentle flutter of a passing
butterfly. Reluctant to give up, he finally found a solution which
brought back the complete joy of hearing. Here are the excerpts of the
interview with him:
Q1. When did you realize you had hearing difficulties?
Ans. Initially, I would refuse to acknowledge that there was any
problem. But gradually, I started realizing that there was something
wrong, when every time I had to direct my head towards someone speaking
Q2. What hearing difficulties did you face?
Ans. I could not follow people talking to me, so I would ask them to
speak a little louder and clearer. I realized that my one ear was
hearing better so I always preferred using that to answer the phone. I
also noticed that I was watching TV at a higher volume than before.
Q3. How did you family and friends react to your hearing loss?
Ans. My family was trying to persuade me to get my hearing checked. It
made me feel irritated & I used to retort by saying that I was ok. I
felt exhausted and frustrated trying to focus on understanding what
others were saying.
Q4. Which specialist did you visit to get your hearing checked
& what was your reaction when you were diagnosed with a hearing
Ans. I came to know about my hearing loss from an Audiologist. I was
reluctant to go for a hearing instrument because of my old age and also
because of my perception that I could somehow manage my day to day
activities without a hearing aid.
Q5. Who advised you to go for a hearing instrument?
Ans. The Audiologist at Amplifon, duly supported by my family. Further
during my interaction with the Audiologists, I came to know that
Amplifon provides best in its class hearing care, state-of-the-art
diagnostic equipments and works with highly qualified audiologists –
Truly a world class standard.
Q6.What was your idea of hearing devices? Were you afraid?
Ans. I did not want to have them thinking that they would be big,
cumbersome and visible to everyone. To my surprise, I got a small and a
comfortable hearing solution, hardly noticeable. I had no idea there
were so many varieties of hearing instruments inside the ear and outside
the ear. The hearing aids have built in intelligence to adapt itself to
the surrounding environment.
Q7.How does your hearing instrument help you in your daily life? Are you happy with your decision of going for it?
Ans. I am thrilled. I can now hear sound as well as understand speech
very clearly. Initially it took me some time to adjust to the hearing
instrument but I can’t imagine a life without them. Everything is much
easier now and I am back to my normal routine.
Q8. Would you recommend other hearing impaired people to wear hearing instruments?
Ans. Definitely. Because at this age, you really wouldn’t want to miss
the beautiful moments that life bestows upon you. Like, at 76, I can
even hear the chuckle of my grandson or listen to my favorite devotional
songs clearly. Thanks to this small device which has actually brought
back smile on my face and my family’s face. I must also appreciate the
personal touch, care and customized solution provided by Amplifon which
completely fulfils my lifestyle requirements.
