Widex launches the world’s first smart hearing aid: The EVOKE!
Hearing happens in real life, not just in a lab or in a clinic examination room. The challenge of real-life hearing is that it is personal and happens right here, right now. That requires the hearing aid to be able to adapt and adjust seamlessly and instantaneously. For the first time ever, it is now possible for a hearing aid to learn from the user’s input and preferences – and even share this learning with other users around the globe. Continue reading
Having hearing loss is not only a health issues, it is a quality of life inhibitor. Landmark Hearing’s patient, Marlyn Buddenbaum was diagnosed with hearing loss and was at the point where she could no longer understand her grandchildren. She stated,
“I was pleasantly surprised to learn that Landmark was in my neighborhood. The entire staff was very accommodating, helping me to set up an appointment that fit into my schedule. My husband and I met with Dr. Brandon Cyrus. He explained all the different types of hearing aids, helping me to select a pair that not only fit my personal needs but that also had Bluetooth technology. When I receive phone calls now, it goes directly into my hearing aids for clearer reception! Dr. Cyrus made it an easy learning process, even allowing me to email him directly so that I was able to get the best use of my hearing aids. It has made such a difference in my life, both socially and personally to remain in control. I can understand my grandchildren again!!”

Diabetes is becoming an extremely common disease, making it a large contributor to hearing loss. Though under-recognized, hearing loss can be a serious complication of uncontrolled diabetes.
In 2008, the National Institute of Health (NHI) conducted a study that showed hearing loss is about twice as likely to occur in adults with type 1 and type 2 diabetes than those who do not have the disease. After testing over 4,700 participants, the NHI found that there was a strong correlation between diabetes and the participant’s ability to hear a range of frequencies in both ears. Of those participants with diabetes, 54% reported a hearing loss of high-frequency sounds. Continue reading

“Hearing loss is a mystery. Mine crept up on me slowly. I didn’t really even recognize that I had hearing loss, all I knew was that I couldn’t understand what was happening around me. I struggled daily with conversations from one end of the house to the other, talking on the phone, and frequently I realized that the TV and the radio volumes were becoming an issue for me,” stated Don Zonic.
Don Zonic knew Dr. Sandra was an Audiologist after hearing about her trade at church. After some convincing, he got his hearing tested at Landmark Hearing Services in Saratoga and soon found out that he had hearing loss in one of his ears. Continue reading

The baby boomer generation is dealing with skin cancer due to the tanning they did as teens. This generation will be dealing with hearing loss due to high levels of damaging noise exposure.
