This week, we are delighted to introduce Audicus customer Rick Posey, who was kind enough to share his hearing loss story, and how Audicus has changed his life.
When did you know you had hearing loss?
It happened very gradually. In the past year, I have noticed that other people get tired of my requests for them to repeat themselves.
What were some of the sounds you had the hardest time hearing?
Certain voices were very difficult to hear. Deeper voices were easy to hear, but higher pitched, female voices can be impossible to hear.
Describe a time when your hearing loss really took a toll on your ability to participate in a social situation.
About 6 years ago I went to dinner with co-workers, while on a business trip. Couldn’t hear things that my boss was saying from the far end of the table. Someone on the other side of me was responding to the question from the boss but I did not even hear what the boss said.
How did you find Audicus?
I was on the internet looking for a good deal. I knew hearing aids were expensive, but wanted to find a better price.
Is this your first experience with hearing aids?
Yes, first time to try a hearing aid.
Describe your interaction with us by phone, email and chat.
Everyone that I have interacted with has been very courteous and helpful.
How did you feel purchasing a medical device online? Did you have concerns?
Not worried, since Audicus has a 45 day money back guarantee.
What was it like when you received your hearing aid and put it on?
It was simple to figure out how to use it. Glad I was not paying a big “mark up” to have someone assist with something so simple.
What were some of the first sounds you heard?
It has been impossible to hear when someone whispers. It was awesome to use my remote control to turn up the volume. I avoided the embarrassment of asking them to repeat everything!
What was most surprising?
The aBlue is tiny! I thought it would be twice as large. Almost invisible when you put it on.
What would you tell other people about Audicus?
Don’t put it off any longer. You can’t lose; since Audicus is affordable and offers a 45 day money back guarantee.
