Distance and Cochlear Implants
Having a Cochlear Implant allowed me to hear for the first time in 15-20 years. But there are some limitations. I asked a group of recipients to tell me about the limitation of distance.
Sound pitches through a Cochlear Implant
We cochlear implantees often get told we are hearing at a high pitch, that the sound is robotic and metallic and I get quite frustrated about this myth. I wondered if it was just me or do others feel the same way.

When I had hearing aids all they could do was amplify all sound. But technology has improved and hearing aids are just so much better.
How well do you hear from a distance?

Better Speech and Hearing month 2013
May is Better Speech and Hearing month.
Losing our processors or hearing aids
When we rely on some sort of device to hear it can be devastating if we lose or damage one. I asked a group of people had they ever lost one.
Dishwashers, washing machines, tumble dryers, kitchen gadgets of all sorts. Then there are our modern toys. All these things to make our lives easier, to help us communicate, easier, better and give us more free time. But do we really have more?
Insuring hearing devices
Recently, I asked a group of people if they do insure their implant processors and if so how they do it.
What fashions our music tastes and how does it develop? What happens if we go deaf? We are no longer exposed to the nuances of music so how does this affect our music taste?
Born deaf now hearing
