Have you watched the videos on YouTube? After getting fitted with hearing aids, a 7-month-old baby hears his mother’s voice for the first time. The smile on his face is enough to bring you tears of joy.
Videos like this one are countless online. You can share that wonderful moment with the child, the parents, and their physicians.
In some videos, the baby is tentative at first. They fight when the doctor attempts to place the device on their ear. Occasionally, before they smile with delight, they cry. They are overwhelmed by a range of emotions. They don’t know what to expect. But in the end, with revived hearing, the world suddenly opens up for them.
This joy that they’re experiencing can be a reality for anyone.
Are you feeling apprehensive about wearing a hearing aid? Many people feel like this too. People of all ages can be a little nervous about this.
Let’s investigate how people of all ages may cry tears of joy when they wear their hearing aid.
Music to Your Ears
You may not have even noticed. It happened so slowly. You don’t listen to music anymore. It seems like it used to be so much more satisfying. At times, it was even grating. It got even worse when you cranked up the volume.
The volume you hear isn’t the only thing that is impacted by hearing loss. Some frequencies of sound are lost while others are not impacted.
Every musician is aware that the notes flow together to make a unified sound that resonates as waves move into your ears. If you can’t hear the magnificent complexity of music, it just isn’t the same.
But wait, now you put in your new hearing aids. Now, those tones which were once muted can be vibrantly heard. Music again comes alive. It becomes a wonderful pleasure in your life that you’d lost.
A Child’s Laughter
Do you remember what a child’s laughter sounds like? Maybe your hearing loss has caused you to forget this amazing experience.

Where Did All The Birds go?
Have you forgotten that lots of birds live in your yard? There are hundreds if you walk in the park. While some of their chirps are more pleasing than others, it’s something you may not acknowledge until they’ve gone.
But the birds are still there. These beautiful sounds of nature once greatly enhanced your life, but now you don’t hear them because of your hearing loss.
But when you use your hearing aids those wonderful sounds of nature return to enhance your life once more.
Neglected hearing impairment can put substantial stress on relationships. It can cause a great deal of frustration. There’s misunderstanding leading to more disagreements. Sometimes, so they don’t feel like a burden, people with hearing loss will go into seclusion.
They frequently feel all alone and disconnected from other’s discussions causing them to refrain from going out to dinner or other social events.
Have you given up hobbies because they’re not as enjoyable?
The basic act of having your hearing back will breathe new life into your relationships with people you love, siblings, children, and friends.
Get accustomed to speaking with each other again. Talk for hours. Return to spending time with the ones you love and taking part in activities you enjoy.
If you’re missing this in your life, it’s time to reconsider that hearing aid.
Confidence That You’re Safe in Your House
Does what you can’t hear make you feel anxious? Would you hear the voice of a hurt family member yelling to you from the other room? A doorbell, oven timer, or smoke alarm…would you be able to hear them? Maybe you would miss an essential phone call because you couldn’t hear it ring.
What about oncoming traffic when you walk around the neighborhood, or a bicycle bell, or a pedestrian signal? Are you confident that you can hear these essential signals?
There are places where we should feel completely safe but because of these “what ifs” we don’t.
But when you use your hearing aid, you can be more relaxed, and enjoy life to its fullest. You’ll experience peace of mind.
You Probably Don’t Even Know How Much You’re Missing
In most instances, hearing loss progresses slowly. You might have simply forgotten the joy of things you can’t hear anymore.
You’ll be amazed when you suddenly hear them again. You’ll regret neglecting it this long. Think your hearing loss isn’t that bad? Get it checked out. Schedule a hearing test and find out what you’ve been missing.
