I used to have perfect hearing. Back in 2005, I got diagnosed with an acoustic neuroma that resulted in surgery to remove the acoustic neuroma and, you know, I lost 90% of my hearing in my left ear. It really wasn’t unusual for me to walk right by somebody. I wouldn’t hear them. Unless I caught him out of the side of my eye, I’d just keep going. Setting up the Ear ID on my phone took me about five or six minutes. It was so easy, and the results were just so immediate.
I’m just so pleased at how clear the sound is and how interactive I was able to be right from the get go. Nothing’s going to bring my hearing back, I know that. But the Boost has allowed me to participate in all kinds of things that I’ve felt isolated from, even just hearing somebody at the coffee shop that I couldn’t have heard before, or being in a crowded room and hearing somebody say my name from across the room. I’m more involved in the environment. Now with IQBuds Boost, my life is so much better.
