‘Shark Tank’ star on how hearing aids changed his life

Daymond John is the founder and CEO of fashion brand FUBU and star of the reality TV series ‘Shark Tank.’ He also has hearing loss which he attributes to noise exposure from years of listening to loud music while growing up.

He struggled for years, thinking people were mumbling or not speaking loud enough. Then he tried hearing aids and said the experience was like night and day. He currently wears Starkey HALO wireless hearing aids which allow him to stream audio from his phone directly to his hearing aids. He is also able to set preferences for specific places like his favorite restaurant, which the hearing aid remembers and adjusts accordingly whenever he goes back.

Daymond, like many, didn’t want to try hearing aids at first, but once he heard the difference they made he wouldn’t go back.
