You’ve seen the videos on TikTok. Babies, after they just get fitted for hearing aids, hearing the voice of their mother for the first time. In some of these videos, the baby is uncertain initially. When the doctor tries to place the hearing aid in their ears, they fight against it. They might cry before they smile with delight. They’re overwhelmed with a range of emotions. They’re anxious about what to expect. But ultimately, with revived hearing, the world abruptly opens up for them. These videos can even cause tears of joy for those watching them.

But anyone can have this life-altering moment.

You’re not by yourself if you’re feeling apprehensive about getting hearing aids. If you’re feeling relatively anxious about this process it doesn’t indicate that you’re a baby.
Let’s investigate how people of any age may cry tears of joy when they use their hearing aid.

Music to your ears

Maybe you didn’t even realize. It developed so slowly. You stopped listening to music. You’re just not that into it now. At times, it is even aggravating. And the higher the volume the more annoying it gets.

It’s not just volume that is impacted by hearing loss. In some cases, only certain frequencies of sound are impacted.
All musicians know that the notes work together to make a unified sound that resonates as waves move into your ears. Music just isn’t the same if you are unable to hear the wonderful complexity of the notes.

Those tones that were once missing in music will be appreciated once again when you use hearing aids. Once more, music comes alive. It was once a wonderful pleasure in your life and now you’ve got it back.

A child’s laughter

Do you recollect the sound of a child laughing? If you’ve been hesitant to wear your hearing aid, you might have forgotten how beautiful this experience can be. Rejuvenate your hearing and rediscover these magical moments with your grandkids.

Repaired relationships

Neglected hearing loss can put a considerable strain on relationships. People get irritated. It can often bring about more arguing. And the person with hearing loss will often feel like a burden causing them to seclude themselves.

They might avoid social clubs or dinner out because they feel alone and disconnected while others are chatting.

Have you given up hobbies because they’re not as fun?

The simple act of getting your hearing back will breathe new life into your relationships with a significant other, brothers and sisters, children, and friends.
Learn to speak with one another again. Have long conversations. Get back to doing the things you enjoy and being with people you love.

It’s time to consider hearing aids if you’re missing these things in your life.

You feel more secure at home

Do you feel anxious about what you’re unable to hear? If a loved one was hurt and yelling out to you, would you be able to hear them? If the doorbell, oven timer, or smoke detector sounded, could you hear them? Would you miss the ringing of the phone when an important call was coming in?

Do you worry that you won’t hear oncoming traffic or pedestrian signals when out for a walk?

These “what if’s” can cause us to feel insecure in places where we should feel perfectly comfortable. But you put yourself at ease and more thoroughly enjoy life when you use hearing aids. This is called peace of mind.

Whatever you’re missing, you might not even know about it

You may not even be aware of what you’re missing, much like the babies who hear their mother’s voice for the first time. Hearing loss progresses gradually in most instances. You may simply forget the joy of things you no longer hear.

When you can suddenly hear again, you’ll be amazed. You’ll regret neglecting it this long. Think your hearing loss isn’t that advanced? Give us a call today to schedule a hearing exam and find out what you’ve been missing.
