Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Stephen Stills Rocks Hearing Aids

When Rock n’ Roll legend Stephen Stills plays live or hits the studio for a recording session, he relies heavily on his ears ... but he also has hearing loss. How can an awarded musician like him work efficiently without his natural full hearing? He uses high-quality hearing aids.
Stephen Stills is one of the many Rock n' Roll greats, with songs like "Judy Blue Eyes," and "For What it’s Worth." As one of Rolling Stone’s 100 Best Guitarists of All Time. He is a BMI Pop Icon Award, and a two-time inductee to the Rock n’ Roll Hall of Fame for his work with Crosby, Stills, Nash and Buffalo Springfield, it is all the more impressive that he accomplished all this with hearing loss. Stills was diagnosed with a mild hearing loss as a child, but over the years it became progressively worse.

“Having been a professional musician for 50 years, the onset of my hearing loss has been a challenge, especially recently,” Stills says.

“The refined ear I developed as a young man is impossible to replicate, and the search for suitable hearing aids has been frustrating.”

“With modern Digital Hearing aids, I have found the best that modern science has to offer,” he adds. “The broader frequency response and fidelity are far and away better today and improving."

Stills continues to thrill audiences across the country with his music. He recently toured with The Rides – the blues-rock trio he plays in with Kenny Wayne Shepherd and Barry Goldberg. Stills also tours solo and with Crosby, Stills and Nash.

Stills and his wife Kristen recently hosted the 2nd Light Up the Blues Concert in downtown Los Angeles, helping to raise over $320,000 to benefit Autism Speaks and the group’s research and advocacy efforts for families and individuals impacted by the disorder.

Stephen chose Widex's Unique 440 platform as his preferred hearing aid. In his opinion, the Widex device is the most accurate hearing aid for replicating natural sound.
