Imagine having a constant, screeching ring in your ear that you can never escape – an incessant, high-pitched buzzing noise that sounds like a faulty AM radio dial and prevents you from enjoying even a moment’s silence.
If you have tinnitus, you don’t have to imagine this scenario. You’re already living it.
Furman Bagwell certainly was – the Spring Hill resident suffered from tinnitus in both of his ears, which was brought on by years of extreme noise from working with sandblasters, loud engines and compressors. He purchased a set of hearing aids years ago from an unnamed company, which brought him more discomfort and itchiness than the relief he desperately needed.
Meanwhile, his wife, Joyce Bagwell, was dealing with hearing issues of her own.
“My hearing just wasn’t clear –I was having a hard time understanding my children,” she recalled.
After reading about Audibel in the Tampa Bay Times, the local couple was determined to improve their lives by addressing their hearing troubles. During each of their initial hearing consultations and examinations, a friendly and compassionate Audibel hearing aid specialist conducted audiometric tests of their ears, explaining the results to them with detailed audiograms. Both Joyce and Furman were then fitted with state-of-the-art wireless hearing aids for each of their specific issues, wearing them during a convenient 45-day trial period, with weekly appointments so they could familiarize themselves with the devices.
The Bagwells couldn’t be happier about the results. “My tinnitus is gone,” Furman beamed. “The relief was instant. And now Joyce and I can hear much better and enjoy the country music we love again.”
“When we go out together, it’s been so much more pleasant having people around since we can both hear much better,” Joyce added.
The best part about their better hearing? “Not having people repeat themselves all the time!” Joyce exclaimed.
