A very happy Clariti customer Fitted on:
“I discovered my hearing problems when I was 7. I have problems listening to conversation especially in noisy environment. While those with normal hearing could black-out “background” noises, I was constantly irritated by them.
I wore hearing aids for more than 15 years but I had not found any hearing aid or someone who could help me overcome this problem. I needed hearing comfort.
In the past, my hearing dispensers would adopt a “give and take” approach when programming my hearing aids. That means setting my hearing aid to a lower gain to manage the noise. This approach compromised my overall hearing ability.
I have great passion for the arts in music and dance. I am an avid dancer trained in traditional Chinese dance. Due to my inability to hear the music clearly, I can only dance by feeling the rhythm and beats that resonates from the music. Despite this, I was selected to perform in Singapore Youth Festivals and won gold medals.
In Jan 2012, I went to Clariti – Hearing Care Professionals and I learnt about the advancements in hearing technology and experienced how these advancements could bring a much higher quality of life to me. When Ronald, the lead hearing consultant, put on the demo aids on my ears for the first time, I was overwhelmed with tears for hearing so clearly after so many years. My new hearing aids can also connect to my handphone via bluetooth making telephone conversation so convenient. It is a total change from my past “silent” world.
On the way home after collecting my new hearing aids, I sent this text to Ronald.
“I’m on the train now and my hearing aid has auto programmed to noisy environment. AMAZING. Plus, my mum called me and I can just answer with ease. Thanks!!!!”
I am wearing a pair of Completely-In-Canal (CIC) aids now. These new aids are so small and intelligent thus allowing me to indulge in my passions again, including dance and music. I can now dance to new music.
They can also be customised for different hearing situations according to my current lifestyle. For once, I can finally enjoy hearing comfort and have greater normality in my life.
I am absolutely thankful and no longer frustrated with my hearing aids now. All I want to say is Thank You Ronald. Thank You Clariti !”
