Karianne is like many people with hearing loss. For years she found herself constantly saying “what was that?” Asking everyone to repeat themselves was just something she got used to doing over the years. “I felt like everyone in the world was mumbling. I would hear someone say ‘trout’ instead of ‘about’ which was very frustrating.” It took a while but she finally came to terms with her hearing loss and got hearing aids through TruHearing.® “The results have been absolutely dramatic. I could hear the ice cracking in someone’s glass and forks tinkling on the plate. I don’t think I heard this well as a child.
Karianne’s story is not uncommon. Millions of people across the country suffer through hearing loss every day. When someone decides to take the step toward better hearing, by wearing hearing aids, their whole world changes. Their quality of life improves, and they start connecting to the world around them in a more profound way.
