hearing aid

Sounds change constantly with each movement – walking from one spot to another affects your ability to focus and the way you hear. If you have a hearing loss, your own movements and the changes around you can severely impact your speech recognition in noise. In a perfect world, a hearing aid would provide improved hearing in noise while adapting to your movements and maintaining awareness of the environment around you

THAT PERFECT WORLD IS NOW HERE
