“One day I was listening to my favorite song and I started crying because I could finally hear the music in it—every instrument that was being played.”
Listen, listen and listen again
Listen to your old favorites over and over – you will be surprised how the sound quality can improve over time.
Music sounds better with streaming
Streaming is a great way to enjoy your tunes by transferring music directly to your sound processor.
Start with familiar music
Start by choosing music you are familiar with, or simple tunes with a strong beat like children's songs.
Try different musical styles
Rock, rap, ballroom or country music are good options because they rely heavily on a musical beat.
