When Andria Lewis, USA, lost her hearing suddenly, it came as a complete shock to both her and her husband.
Unable to hear and participate in the conversations around her, she withdrew into herself and stopped going out. But with the help from her Baha System, she was gradually able to return to the person she was before her hearing loss – outgoing, sociable and fun-loving.
One of the features she loves the most is being able to talk on the phone in her car – completely wireless.
“I could be driving and want to be handsfree. The phone rings and goes directly from the phone into my Baha 5 Sound Processor. It’s just been a godsend!”
Andria also loves the Smart App which enables her to go out hiking with her husband and easily block out the wind – or just switch to a different setting while in an outdoor café, simply by using her smartphone.
“We can go out to dinner. And going out to dinner used to mean me missing 90% of what was said. Now I have the setting that can block out noise, and I can actually sit and dine with my husband and have a conversation. It’s just such a pleasure.”
