JH has been coming to the Crystal River office of Gardner Audiology since 2002. She has history of middle ear surgery and hearing aid use. Over the years she has worn a few different hearing aid models. Her hearing has continued to deteriorate.
JH came in this summer complaining of difficulty understanding conversation. Her current hearing aids were four years old. We discussed new technology, but she was hesitant to spend the money on new aids. We reprogrammed her current aids and she was headed out of state.
About six weeks later I received a call from JH telling me she was not hearing a difference with the adjustments we made. She asked to field study a set of Starkey X110 RIC hearing aids. She made arrangements to come back to Florida to try the aids.
The hearing aids were fitted and we saw her back for follow up adjustments over the next couple of weeks. She was amazed how much her hearing improved with the new hearing aids. She attended an outdoor concert and said the sound was amazing. Her only regret was that she waited so long to try them!
