Piscataway, NJ, Aug. 07, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- What happens when a lifetime around loud music damages your hearing? For David Gellis, decades of performing as lead guitarist of the band Blood, Sweat and Tears led to hearing loss, making it difficult to hear and perform.

Musician Dave Gellis enjoys the natural sound of his Signia Pure® Charge&Go Nx hearing aids.

While an experienced hearing aid wearer, Gellis would often remove his older devices when on stage because they didn’t provide the clarity of music he needed. However, new hearing aids from audiology technology leader Signia allow him to hear better, even when performing.

With Signia’s Pure® Charge&Go Nx hearing aids, Gellis has a pair of technologically advanced devices with programs to help him hear in all situations, whether performing or listening to music, or during conversations.

“Dave has a mild-to-severe hearing loss that’s worse in the higher frequencies, which is typical with noise exposure,” said Dr. Donna Szabo, Audiologist and owner of Innovative Hearing Solutions. “He needed something that would help him with the clarity of the music, so I fit him with the Signia Pure Charge&Go Nx. In the program, it has live music and recorded music settings, so he can benefit from them.”

Gellis, who shares his experiences with Signia hearing aids in a new video testimonial, said, “When they first turned them on, I felt foolish for putting it off for so long. At the same time, it was an absolute epiphany. It reminded me what birds sound like!”
