Clear communication is the cornerstone of any healthy relationship. This is especially true in the daily lives of couples.

There’s no question that untreated hearing loss can adversely affect relationships. The partner with the hearing issues feels isolated and misunderstood, while the other partner becomes frustrated with having to repeat what they’re saying on a nearly incessant basis.

Len Travis knows this feeling all too well. Living with his own hearing loss for years, Len felt like the whole world was passing him by. “My girlfriend would be talking to me and I’d have no idea what she was talking about,” he recalled. “She would also point out how I couldn’t understand the words to songs on the radio. And it’s true; it was just noise to me. I would just hear the bass and miss the rest of it.”

Fortunately, he was able to hear a TV spot for Audibel, and decided it was time to address his hearing problems once and for all.

During his initial hearing consultation and examination, a friendly and compassionate Audibel hearing aid specialist conducted an audiometric test of Len’s ears, explaining the results to him with a detailed audiogram. He was then fitted with state-of-the-art wireless hearing aids for his specific issues, wearing them during a convenient 45-day trial period with weekly appointments so he could familiarize himself with the devices – and the results have improved his overall quality of life.

“I feel totally different; like a new person,” Len smiled. “I’m really happy to be able to start understanding people and hear things again.

“Audibel has been wonderful. I look forward to coming here. Not just for the hearing adjustments but because everyone’s got such a good attitude here.”

“I just want to say that this is one of the best experiences I’ve ever had – it’s changed everything for me and my girlfriend,” Len shared. “It’s made a big difference for both of us.”
