When my hearing aids were not enough, Cochlear™ hearing implants helped me redefine myself through my abilities, not my limitations.
Is your hearing loss holding you back from being unstoppable?
Nearly 1 out of every 3 people over the age of 65 are affected by hearing loss¹. While wearing your hearing aid(s), do you…
Have difficulty hearing conversations especially in noisy situations?
Have trouble hearing on the telephone?
Frequently ask people to repeat themselves?
Only hear from one ear?
Find yourself agreeing, smiling or nodding during conversations when you are not sure what has been said?
If you answered YES to any of these questions, then it may be time to explore a hearing implant.
What is the difference between hearing aids and hearing implants?
Hearing aids help many people by making the sounds they hear louder. Unfortunately, as hearing loss progresses, sounds need to not only be made louder, they need to be made clearer. Hearing implants may help give you that clarity, even in noisy environments.²
