In this video, Baha user Meryl from the US describes growing up and spending her whole life just hearing from one side.
“One thing about single-sided deafness is that a lot of people say ‘Oh well, you have another ear that’s really good, so what’s the big deal if you don’t have the two ears? Well, the big deal is directional sound. It’s kind of like when the Wizard of Oz is black and white and then, all of a sudden, it goes to colour. That’s what it felt like to get my Baha. It’s like everything came back to life. It was crisp and clear and just an amazing explosion of sound.”
