Do you know what I love? What actually makes me smile when I am in my office? Watching someone operate and control their hearing aids using their iPhone. There is something miraculous about this technology leap that pleases me. I am not sure if it’s because it is so cool or so easy, or so inconspicuous, or so tech savvy but I feel like this leap to wearable tech is huge for hearing aids. Seeing the amazement on people’s faces as they listen to podcasts or music directly into their hearing aids is fun. Truly.
Something I have been hearing a lot of with this technology is “well, look at me, aren’t I fancy”. People are excited, happy, amazed at what their hearing aids can do and can’t wait to tell their friends. If this isn’t a shift in the positive direction for the reputation of hearing aids, I don’t know what is.
I love technology and what it can do for us. If you do too, let me know…
