Susie Reust lost the hearing in her right ear due to a brain abscess—and says she lost much of her life as well. “It’s very isolating. People think you’re stupid because you don’t respond to them,” says the 45-year-old financial manager for a hospital chain in Phoenix.
In January, Ms. Reust tried a new hearing system that transmits sounds wirelessly through the teeth. Leaving the audiologist’s office, she says she almost cried when she heard a sound on her right—high heels clicking on the sidewalk—for the first time in 10 years.
