After 20 Years, I Can Participate In Conversations Again!

13 July 2020

Rob van Dorresteijn is an Écoutez customer. He had had doubts about his hearing for over 20 years. He has been wearing a hearing aid for about a year.

“I can fully participate in conversations again,” he says. “I often felt I was missing comments, especially in a larger group. My wife also made comments about it regularly. When I had my hearing tested I found that I missed a significant part of the high tones. Yet, I continued to walk around with my hearing loss for a long time. Too long.”

“I think I was not mentally ready. But in the meantime I couldn’t follow meetings at work and I got confused with speech. This was very annoying.”

“When a friend pointed out the excellent service and the huge range of hearing aids at Écoutez, I took the plunge. After a trial period, I made a final choice in close consultation with hearing care professional Lisette Kolenbrander. A hearing aid must be properly adjusted. I did not know that. Écoutez took plenty of time for that and after each appointment my hearing was better again.”

“Écoutez has ensured that I can fully participate in conversations again. I am satisfied with what I can hear again. And it turns out, despite my bald head, that a hearing aid is much less noticeable than I thought!”

Rob now has a great sense of hearing to match his great sense of humor! We are always so happy when a customer is satisfied with their hearing solution. Rob waited for over 20 years. That is something that happens far too often.
