Music has been a part of Rob for most of his life. After mastering piano at a young age, he grew to also love singing and playing guitar (among many other instruments).
For years, Rob knew he had a hearing problem, but similar to many people, he put off getting hearing aids. Eventually, he grew tired of sounding like a broken record. “It’s very frustrating to have to ask people to repeat themselves all the time,” says Rob.
After getting fitted for hearing aids by his Miracle-Ear provider, John Ottman, Rob realized how much he had been missing out on—especially in his relationships with others. “Really, at the end of the day, it’s about being able to have a conversation with another person,” he says.
Rob loves how he’s now able to hear and enjoy the beautiful intricacies of music, from melodies and vocals to crescendos and cadences. When asked about his decision to get hearing aids, he says: “I should have done this five years ago. And I’m glad I did it.”
