"I have decided to go for bilateral surgery on the left ear because I’m really excited to hear what else the world has to offer."

- Kunal, Cochlear™ implant recipient, Sri Lanka

Kunal has lived most of his 28 years with his cochlear implant. He was nearly two years old when his parents discovered his hearing loss.

After trying hearing aids, he received a cochlear implant.

He says he still remembers hearing his mother’s voice clearly for the first time, several months after his switch-on.

Two decades later, Kunal says he’s increasingly impressed with the quality and clarity each upgrade delivers. With it, his confidence grows every year.

He enjoys being able to talk on the phone – something that used to be a major challenge.

"I have gone through different phases of life,” he says. “And the one thing that has been constant in my life is Cochlear."
