The Internet is peppered with countless emotional and powerful videos of deaf people hearing for the first time thanks to advances in cochlear ear implants. This cochlear ear implant video by Deer Prom starts off like the rest. But it quickly diverges into some seriously dark humor.
Cochlear Implants are amazing, relatively new technology that gives certain hearing-impaired people the ability to hear in a very real sense by replacing the hair cells that do not work in the inner ear with special hardware.
The Internet‘s viral video world was first introduced to the power of the implant when then-deaf Sarah Churman heard for the first time in an emotional viral video from 2011. That video currently stands with over 16 million views.
Now Catherine Arnold‘s 26 year old deaf niece Amy has gone viral after this touching six month old video of her first experience with her new cochlear implant started making the round online this weekend.
Amy has never heard her parents or her son before her implant and now she finally can hear her little six year old boy yell, “Hi mom!”
Ironically, it’s the little things in life that we often take for granted that are the most magical.
Cochlear implant reaction videos are always emotional and touching. This one from 2011 just went viral now, and features the adorable deaf Cooper who hears his mother for the first time after his implant is activated.
Modern technology and advancements in medicine are changing people’s lives everyday. Some people born deaf are finally hearing for the first time with new hi-tech hearing aids. This woman is 29 years old and was born deaf. She was just fitted with a new device that might give her some hearing. When it’s turned on and she finally hears her own voice for the first time she naturally becomes very emotional. Her face lights up and she begins to cry. The video is going viral on Reddit.
