More about Richard Einhorn

“It is vitally important that people with hearing loss stop trying to hide their hearing problem.  There is absolutely nothing to be gained by doing so, and so much to lose.”
Richard Einhorn, composer who suffered a sudden, unexplained profound hearing loss in 2010.

Can you imagine waking up one morning and discovering you are completely deaf in one ear and have lost 70% of your hearing in the other ear?!  That would be devastating for anyone, but imagine you were a composer and your entire life revolved around music.  Read the inspiring story of this man in the May-June issue of the Hearing Loss Magazine (available online to HLAA members).

The New York Times has published a second article about Richard, “For Hard of Hearing, Clarity Out of the Din.”  In this article, he discusses t-coils, loops and assisted listening devices.  Richard describes how he converted his iPhone into a personal amplifier. Very cool!

There is so much technology out there to help you hear, but as I said in an earlier blog  “Assisted Listening Devices are not for Sissies!”  If you can overcome your embarrassment about having a hearing loss, find a personal listening device that works for you.  Here are few that I recommend:  Wireless FM Personal Amplifiers.
