Jeff did a great job sharing his experience with a cochlear implant in A Sound Decision. This link takes you to the page that demonstrates what saying a sentence sounds like through regular hearing, a hearing aid, hook up day, a few days later, and two weeks later. To me, it all sounds the same except for the beeps and blips… it sounds like noise not like a person talking.
The site also talks about how sound works with a cochlear implant. Jeff describes his hearing experience and what he experiences is not necessarily what I will experience. It may take me more time or less time… it may not sound as clear. We do not have the same history with regard to our hearing loss.
