Chapter 7: Hearing Aids Are a Miracle for this Audiophile
What is an Audiophile?
Prescott Hearing Center provided the perfect solution for me, an audiophile. An audiophile is a person who derives great enjoyment from listening to high-fidelity sound reproduction. An audiophile seeks to hear a reproduction of the sound of a live musical performance or a recording session with excellent acoustics. Reaching this goal is difficult, even for those with excellent hearing performance, as even the best-regarded recording and playback systems are not perfect.
Always Listening for those Little Features in Music
I am an amateur musician, and I have always loved to listen to many kinds of music. Ever since I can remember, I have been conscious about some of the most minute aspects of any recording or a movie soundtrack. I listen for the slight rhythms tapped on a cymbal by a jazz drummer or the low drone of cellos in the background of symphony music. When I go to a movie, I am always listening closely to the musical soundtrack. Those subtleties are something most viewers may not even be conscious of.
My Damaged Hearing Limited My Ability to Enjoy Music
As the years have gone by, my hearing loss has affected me in such a way that even when listening to music coming from the finest sound system and speakers, I noticed things were missing. The wonderful treble sounds I used to hear, during my childhood, on particular recordings, were now dulled. Often they sounded distorted. The bass seemed overwhelming. When I listened through stereo headphones, I was missing virtually everything on the left side.
Hearing Aids from Prescott Hearing Center: Back to Enjoying Music Again!
Over the years I have been through several sets of hearing aids. I noticed a huge change using the new hearing system Doug Dunker set me up with. I have come to enjoy listening to music again. Thankfully I am now able to hear the finer, distinct tones, and the effects in music that I have not heard since my youth!
