Irene works teaching children, which can be a challenging task with a hearing loss. For anyone, trying to get children to speak slowly and clearly — and to be patient with the listener — can be tough. But now that Irene has upgraded to the Baha 5 Power sound processor, she said she can hear the children at her primary school more clearly.
Irene, 31, was diagnosed with hearing loss after a viral infection in 2010. After she got her implant surgery, she was fitted first with the Baha Intenso sound processor. Five years later, she upgraded to the Baha 5 Power and is thrilled she did.
