When I was in high school I had trouble hearing my teachers. As a result, I was seated at the front of the class for every subject. Before I went to school at South Alabama, I got Widex hearing aids. Now I can hear all my teachers perfectly, no matter where I sit. I can even hear perfectly in lecture halls!!
I live in the mountains of Western North Carolina and walk 3-4 miles daily with my Chocolate Lab Sophie. Before Widex Beyond I could not appreciate the many birds on my daily adventures into nature . My life has been enriched by being able to hear and identify all of them.
For years my wife thought I was not paying attention. I admit sometimes I did but most the time I really didn't hear her. Now its a whole new world. Being involved in conversation and not trying to read lips and paying attention to facial expressions is great.
