Charles Owens’ hearing diagnosis is bilateral moderate to severe sloping sensorineural hearing loss with relatively strong speech discrimination. In the language of one of his jazz idols, Charlie Parker, that’s Bluest Blues and No NoiseParts I to III.

Without the dirtiest dive-bar shadow of a doubt, jazz is the heart and soul of Charles Owens, and his being able to hear the full spectrum of tone colour in what he and others are playing owes much to Ivan Wu, the audiologist who fitted his Phonak Marvel device at the Connect Hearing practice in Encino, California, carrying out a “frequency-by-frequency, decibel-by-decibel” fitting, “yes, a jazz fitting because it is personalised,” said Wu, regional director at Connect US.
