Mr Stephan Czornyj

How his hearing affected him!

  • Television always turned up to loud, especially for his wife
  • Cannot not hear the telephone ringing
  • Finds conversations difficult
  • Struggles socially in crowds and family gatherings
  • Suffers with tinnitus

How we helped! 

The UK Veterans Hearing Foundation referred Mr Czornyj to one of out network clinics Hear4U for a hearing assessment. He was seen by Rosie Dooley an Audiologist who was carrying out his service, and was recommended a pair of Starkey Livio Edge AI custom rechargeables. They will pair to his phone for music, phone calls and use of the Thrive app, to support all his hearing requirements.

Audiologist Feedback:

Stephan said they sounded really crisp and clear. He is pleased with how simply they paired to his mobile and we practiced taking a phone call and listening to music – he said the streamed sound was so full and pleasant to listen to. He loves that they are not behind the ear and he does not have to worry about his mask, and of course that he does not have to change any more batteries due to them being fully rechargeable.

The UK Veterans Hearing Foundation would like to show gratitude to the Veterans Foundation  (Veterans Lottery) for exceptional funding that has allowed us to improve Mr Czornyj’s life in the dire times of COVID-19
