Hearing Aids for Rock Stars
Not everyone wants to be a rock star but if you do, you will need good hearing. Lots of people love music, it’s good for your body and good for your soul. You may love singing along to your favourite songs, humming in your car or even singing in a choir. The ability to listen to good music and enjoy it is part of a good life so if you are losing your hearing then you may find wearing hearing aids will help a lot with restoring your quality of life.
Good News for Hearing Aids
Huey Lewis became a famous rock star. He went on to make lots of memorable tunes and recordings but in 2018 he was diagnosed with Ménière’s disease, an inner-ear disorder that causes vertigo, as well as tinnitus (ringing in your ears) and fluctuating deafness. The rock star said he first noticed symptoms during a performance in Dallas and then things became more severe. “This is now a year and eight months, and it’s awful,” Huey said adding, “I can’t hear music. It’s hard enough to hear speech. My hearing fluctuates. I can actually get better sometimes where I think, ‘Oh, my gosh, I can almost sing.” The same year, Huey canceled all upcoming tour dates for the band so that he could deal with the diagnosis.
The Power of Love
Huey says his fans have helped him get through this difficult time. Your family, friends or loved ones can help you get through hearing loss whether you are a rock star or not. This starts with a visit to a professional hearing care consultant like Clarisound. Even if you are not a rock star, don’t be shy, sit down and take a free hearing test. Huey says he can still pick up sounds thanks to hearing aids and other devices that amplify audio. His hearing problems have been coming on for years, but when they reached their worst in 2018, he says he thought he had lost everything. “I try not to let it get me down,” he said. Studies have found that hearing loss has been linked to depression and other physical illnesses like diabetes. So if you are losing your hearing like Huey, try wearing a hearing aid, or hearing aids, and get back to singing or at least listening to music like a rock star.
Wearing a suitable hearing aid won’t make you a rock star but even if you didn’t want to be one in the first place you can still enjoy the sound of music and this will restore your quality of life.
