Hear What Our Patients Are Saying:
“What does hearing loss sound like? The answer depends on quite a few factors. Challenges to your hearing can come up suddenly or happen gradually over time. Hearing loss can come up at any age in life and affect one or both ears.Because hearing loss can take different forms, it’s important to notice and respond to changes in your hearing. Treating hearing loss early makes it easier to adapt to hearing aids and helps prevent additional health and hearing issues. Here are a few important things to understand about hearing loss.”

My name is Denney, and I purchased hearing aids through Focus Hearing. I am completely satisfied with the care, concern, and abilities of Michael L. Schneller.My wife had encouraged (persistent insistence) that I have my hearing tested. After being tested, Michael assisted in my choosing the hearing aids that best suited my needs. I cannot adequately express how my quality of life has improved with assisted hearing. After Michael fitted and adjusted my devices, I got in my car, turned down the volume on the radio and could understand what was being said on my favorite NPR station. One of the greatest moments in my life came later that evening when my wife asked me “to turn up the TV.”!I am grateful for all that Focus Hearing has done to increase my enjoyment of life.

Thank you for caring so much about my hearing. Your patience is truly amazing. I appreciate the many hearing aid brands that you have and I have never felt pressured to purchase. You always are willing to take time to answer all of my questions – not easy! Everyone on your staff is kind, gracious and very knowledgeable. This is the best “hearing” experience I have had in the 15 years I have been wearing hearing aids.

“After visiting three recommended providers I finally found Michael L. Schneller at Focus Hearing (10990 Quivira Rd, Ste 120, Overland Park, KS 66210). He is above and beyond all the other providers in every possible way. His practice is a true passion for him and it shows to his very core. I was very impressed with his listening skills, questions, testing, explanations, fitting and training. I have already told family, friends and coworkers about him as well.”

“If you have hearing problems and want to be assured that your hearing will be fixed right, go to Focus Hearing. In my experience, Michael Schneller and Focus Hearing is hands down the best hearing center in the Kansas City area. I’ve tried other places and the emphasis seems to be more on sales to pressure you into buying one of their $5000 to $6000 hearing aids rather than getting you the best device for your condition. Not at Focus Hearing. There is absolutely no pressure and Michael’s total focus is on giving you the best device for your condition at a very competitive price. He has the best equipment and expertise to do it right for you. His approach is to first talk with you about your hearing problems, then test your hearing, and then fit you with the best device to try out for up to 45 days at no charge with adjustment appointments along the way. Then you decide to purchase or not. No Pressure! You will be amazed with the price. He fit me with Widex hearing aids that link right into my iPhone. I can answer my phone with a button push and converse hands free. I also received a device to listen to the TV with my hearing aids. These things are so cool and my hearing is great. Try Focus Hearing out. I guarantee you won’t be disappointed.”

“Hello, I would like to tell you about my experience of dealing with Michael Schneller, of Focus Hearing. First of all I want to thank Michael For opening up my life for me. It is as I have been driving in a fog and he has cleared the windshield for me. I wore hearing aids as a child. And when puberty set in, it was not fashionable for me, and being bull headed, I went through 45 years, of missed moments account, I Could not hear as well as I should have. I waited a long time to finally admit, I needed help. What convince me was my granddaughters Soft voices. When Papa could not hear what they were saying, they practically had to shout for me to understand them. Now after being fitted with widex hearing aids, I am back to a “normal” person. With the 3 different settings, I can control how much I hear, and how loud I want to hear it. I was a big believer in selected hearing, and it got me in trouble with the wife a couple times! Now one thing I really enjoy about. The service and results of my hearing aids, is being in a quiet setting like a golf course, and hearing the birds chirping. Now some people may Take that for granted, but I will not. The music of God’s creatures is a reminder of what a beautiful place this world is, and to enjoy it. So makes me happy. I only wished that I had started sooner. Thank you Michael and your helpful staff. I will recommend you and your service to any one I know in need of hearing aids.”

I have better than normal hearing!
I’ve had a 50% hearing loss in both ears since birth due to a premature childbirth. As a child, my parents did the best they could by providing me with the best hearing aids available (1950s-1970). The best they did was send me a special hearing seminar held for 10 days on the campus of Penn State where I learned how to socialize as a deaf person. I was able to witness other people with worse hearing than mine, I made the error that my hearing wasn’t so bad. I did learn how to lip read which has been useful all my life. I was able to communicate fairly well face to face, however I didn’t know what was going on behind my back, nor did I care. Wearing a hearing aid as a child (and an active adult) just didn’t work, the hearing aids were cumbersome to wear and frankly just didn’t help much because of the technology at the time.
A few months ago I decided to check out the latest in hearing technology (more out of curiosity with no intention of buying). I was referred to Focus Hearing where Michael Scheller prvided me with a hearing test and showed some of the latest in hearing technology. I decided to order a pair to try for 45 days. When the aids came in, and I put them on for first time, I was sceptical. I was hearing so much. All I can say is for the first time in my life I know what normal hearing is like! It did take some time to make some adjustments for my conditions, but Michael and his staff were/are most helpful in optimizing the functions of my new hearing computers! The technology is amazing and I hear better than normal!
Thank you, Michael and staff!

I visited Focus Hearing for the first time in October (2018). I love and appreciate Michael and his team at Focus Hearing. I can hear better for the first time in years. Michael helped me find hearing aids that are the best solution for my ‘hearing challenge’. These are my third pair of hearing aids. I am amazed at how well I can now hear. My family and friends are relieved that I can hear so well. When Michael told me the cost of these hearing aids, I could not believe it. The cost was a third of what I have paid in the past. Michael and his team are knowledgeable and patient in answering my questions. Thank you Michael and Focus Hearing.
