Charlie Rose interviews University of Iowa’s Ruth Bentler and gets an “Earfull”


Charlie Rose interviewed esteemed Professor of Audiology, Ruth Bentler, Ph.D. on Monday night.  When Charlie asked Dr. Bentler why most people do not get help for their hearing loss by purchasing hearing aids, she responded that the reason was, in part, due to vanity; in part, due to financial constraints; but mostly, due to the fact that hearing aids fail to satisfy their expectations.  The challenging listening environments that prompted them to seek help for their hearing loss (speech at a distance, background noise and/or reverberation) can only be helped by hearing loops.  You go, Dr. Bentler!!
