"I was 80 years old when I finally got smart, and I got my Baha. I wish I had done it years earlier because it's made such a dramatic change in my life."

- Malcolm S. - Baha® recipient

80 year old man loves listening to Golden Oldies

Although Malcom had hearing loss from birth, no-one knew how profound it was until he was three-years-old. Even later in life, many people were unaware Malcolm had trouble hearing.

He was stunned at a work party when, after some banter, one of his colleagues light heartedly told Malcolm 'he wasn't the jerk many people thought he was.'

Mystified and hurt, Malcolm questioned his colleague, who explained how Malcolm often ignored his colleagues when they said hello.

That's when Malcolm knew it was time to do something about his hearing.
