Close your eyes and think of some of your favorite sounds. Maybe they’re sounds from your past: your mother’s raspy laugh, your dad telling that same joke every Sunday dinner, Johnny Carson’s “Tonight Show” theme playing in the living room as you were falling asleep…Or maybe they’re more recent: the ping of your phone telling you you’ve got a text.
Point is, sounds can be wonderful and can mean so much to the fabric of our lives. Why let hearing loss take them away when hearing aids can help to ensure that you don’t miss them?
Below are nine sounds that many have told us they’d hate to stop hearing. The list is hardly definitive. We’re sure you could easily add several just off the top of your head.
