Video Description

In this video, Rony's deep knowledge and experience in hearing aids is very obvious. He explains how hearing problems can occur, how he works with patients to help them, and how he creates and adapts hearing aids for the patients. It's a fun video so enjoy it.


Since Rony was younger, he always liked working with electronics. He would repair bad instruments, machines, computers, and many other things. Rony became an audioprosthologist (hearing aid specialist) after studying electronics in college and later specialising in audiology. Rony doesn't think that audiology is a simple career but he really loves it and feels that he was born to do it. He gets a lot of satisfaction from seeing his patients hear again.
