Hey there,

Today, hearing loss treatments are unbelievably sophisticated. But it hasn’t always been this way.

Initially, people tried also sorts of manual solutions to amplify the sounds passing through their ears – from hollowed-out animal horns to brass listening instruments.

It was only in the early 1900s when the first electronic hearing aids came into existence, leading to a century of engineering developments.

Today, modern devices come with advanced features such as Bluetooth connectivity and remote charging.

But just recently, a company has launched a new hearing aid, the ReSound ONE, which they say will revolutionize wearers’ experiences even more!

Could this be a game-changer?

 Like all big announcements, it’s wise not to take a single statement such as this at face value.

That’s why we decided to give a select number of our patients the ReSound ONE to test it out for themselves and see what they made of it.

So far, they’ve been impressed with what this new device offers, and when you look at the specifications, it’s not hard to see why.

Uniquely, the ReSound ONE uses a person’s ear to absorb sounds from their local environment.

This differs from standard models that solely rely on a behind-the-ear microphone and, perhaps, points to how hearing aids will be designed in the future.

It also comes with an advanced sound processor, meaning wearers witness more clarity than ever before.

If you’d like to find out more about this new hearing technology, call us at (281) 444-9800, and we can let you try the device for yourself!

 

Updates from the office

 We’d like to reach out to any young people who’ve been suffering from a hearing loss or have concerns. Studies show that there’s been a rapid rise in those ages 18-27 who have the early signs of permanent auditory damage, as we demonstrated in a recent blog.

If you know someone in your family who has struggled with a ringing in their ear or finds loud sounds troublesome, let us know as soon as possible!

A full hearing assessment is the best way to detect an issue and prescribe the best solutions going forward. Call us at (281) 444-9800 to book your test now!

Why a Hearing Loss Shouldn’t Limit Your Ambitions

 It’s not uncommon for people to believe that a hearing loss will stop them from achieving their dreams.

But one deaf filmmaker, Chase Burton, demonstrates how any form of hearing impairment shouldn’t get in the way of your potential.

In association with California tech firm Not Impossible Labs, he got his hands on a special suit that allowed him to “feel” different sounds in his local environment.

Chase believes this can open up a new realm in how those with a profound hearing loss connect with others.

“I see technology as a real opportunity to bring deaf and hearing audiences together and create a new kind of experience,” he told CNN.

We think it’s fantastic when someone pairs their determination with technology that lets them accomplish amazing things!
