Words of wisdom from one man's 22 year delay in gaining better hearing through hearing aids.
"It took me way too long to do something about my hearing loss"
Dennis P., Essex CT

It took Dennis 22 years to complete his hearing journey. His only wish is he hadn't waited so long.

"Why am I writing this? To share what I have learned about hearing loss and the importance of doing something about it sooner rather than later."

That's how Dennis started a heartfelt letter, documenting his long hearing journey filled with wisdom from over two decades of contemplation and research around treatment solutions. Fortunately, his hearing journey has a happy ending, as he discovered the new Widex BEYOND™ hearing aid technology. However, it took many trials and tribulations to reach the conclusion. 

At 75 years old today, Dennis still leads an active lifestyle as he works out regularly and enjoys frequent golf and sailing outings. After a long and successful career, he has very little to reflect back upon in regret, except treating his hearing loss. Dennis stated "despite being a well-organized person, it took me way too long to do something about my hearing loss. This was due to mistaken assumptions about the need for hearing aids to overcome hearing loss and the health risks of not getting them".
