Tips for music with a Cochlear Implant
Cochlear implants provide excellent speech recognition for the majority of implantees. The next thing we all want is to enjoy listening to music and hear it the way we once did. Here's some tips about who to get the best sound for music with your Cochlear Implant.

Travelling can pose special challenges for a deaf or hard of hearing person, but it doesn’t mean you shouldn’t go.
