This Is What Life Sounds Like Through A Cochlear Implant

There are technological solutions that now allow the deaf to regain at least some of their hearing. And now you can listen to what it's like to hear through a cochlear implant.

In this video Michael Dorman, a professor of Speech and Hearing Science, gives us a chance to listen to how things sound to wearers of cochlear implants — and it's incredibly impressive. This doesn't mean researchers are resting on their laurels: he goes on to explain how they can — and will — improve the technology. It's pretty amazing stuff. [YouTube]
