Do you remember how the sound of the afternoon rain gently patters upon the roof? You can smell the rain in the air but you wonder why can’t you hear it? You also wonder why the birds chirp a little softer than in the past. These may be signs that you are losing your hearing. Cathy McDermott of Miracle-Ear says not to fear. One in three people over 60 experience hearing loss. And, with the growing sounds of technology, more and more young people are reporting different degrees of hearing loss. According to McDermott, hearing aids in Ocala, FL are becoming much more advanced than ever before. Improvements include the innovative dual microphone system, Bluetooth technology, invisibility, and waterproof options.
You can explore the “hands-on” world of hearing aids in Ocala, FL by visiting one of McDermott’s Miracle-Ear locations in Ocala and Gainesville, FL. Not only will you receive a free initial hearing test from one of the many board certified hearing instrument specialists, but you will be able to experience the different types of hearing aids offered. The “hands-on” approach is one attribute that sets Miracle-Ear apart. If you are searching for hearing aids in Ocala, you not only have the opportunity to get ‘a new lease on life’ but you get a team of professionals who will guide you daily–initially–and continue to be a part of your hearing growth through the years.
So, what exactly is the ‘experience?’ Improvements in digital hearing instruments are rapid. Currently, McDermott is most excited about the dual microphone system. She says, “We are able to adjust hearing aids as if looking at an equalizer. If you need more treble and not as much bass, we are able to turn up the treble without the bass.”
Another great feature is that there are two microphones on each hearing aid. You can turn off the rear microphone so you don’t hear commotion behind you when you are trying to have a conversation in front of you. McDermott says, “For example, you are having lunch at a restaurant, say Cracker Barrel, but you can hear everything from people requesting a table at the front of the restaurant to kitchen sounds behind you. You can now easily turn off one of the mics to clear the sound and become present in the conversation you are having. You can lower the volume with the click of a button or by remote.”
You can find these little pieces of magic in Ocala. Hearing aids also have Bluetooth capabilities where you can connect to a phone, radio or mp3 player directly to your hearing device. This technology bypasses the middleman and goes right into the hearing aid instead of it transferring between electronics, which can distort sound. You can also find 100% invisible and 100% waterproof hearing aids in Ocala and Gainesville, FL at one of McDermott’s Miracle-Ear locations.
