Ok so finally I can write my first Resound One review.
On 3 September I was fitted with my new hearing aids. For me it always takes a good few weeks for my brain to embrace new hearing aids.
As many of you will know I have been on a smart hearing aid journey with GN Hearing for over 5 years now.
In that 5 years I have experienced a revolution in hearing and sound enablement that has changed my life.
As I’ve waved goodbye to most of my useful sight I have benefitted from the invaluable gift of sound.
As a creative person I’d describe hearing with Resound One like peeling an onion, the more you peel the deeper you go and the more you might cry but tears of happiness and the artistic person in me describes the experience as hearing in colours, just about the entire colour palette.
Resound Ones together with the ability the app provides for change/variation in different environments have provided a new clarity in layers of sound.
A good example of this would be a noisy outside environment (in other words a nightmare situation for a deaf person, even worse for somebody deafblind) – there is ongoing building work near where I live, lots of drilling, banging, thumping sounds and yes I can identify those sounds now, something I would never have identified some years ago, I can now thankfully hear all that racket as background noise and on walking past I can hear builders chatting and I know from what direction those voices are coming but I cannot see the builders – they swear a lot!
When I walk with my guidedog at night I am very comforted and feel safer knowing I can hear what is going on around me as I cannot see a thing, the joys of Usher Syndrome.
