The transition from a world of silence to a world of sound is liberating.
Just ask Karl, a Nucleus® 7 recipient. Since receiving a Cochlear Implant, his world has been filled with sounds that allow him to hear and engage with others in ways that he couldn’t before.
“My confidence has grown hugely since I’ve had the implant,” he said. “The sound and clarity of the N7 has definitely helped me in my social life.”
His newfound confidence has impacted both his profession and his personal life.
“I engage now more with my colleagues at work. I can have quite a long conversation very, very clearly. And it has made life so much easier for me,” Karl said.
Hailing from Auckland, New Zealand, Karl is one of over 450,000 people around the world whose lives have been transformed by Cochlear hearing solutions.
For him, one of the biggest benefits is being able to step outside and hear the world around him.
“I love the sounds of nature. I love the sounds of the animals,” Karl said. “I can hear the sheep. I can hear birds fly past. It’s like a breath of fresh air that makes me feel alive.”
Karl said he also appreciates being able to connect with his friends and family through his iPhone®. The Nucleus 7 Made for iPhone connectivity means that he never has to miss a conversation with his loved ones.
“I feel a lot more confident because the clarity of the sound is fantastic,” he said. “I feel that the Nucleus 7 has given me a new lease of life.”
