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!!”

Hearing loss, that’s only a problem for older people, right?
Think again! Noise exposure, not age, is the leading cause of hearing loss. While is it common for older individuals to have hearing loss, damage from everyday noise is a growing issue amongst our younger generations.
