  • “Health & Hearing was a big step up from anywhere I’d been in the past.”

    I’ve recently had new hearing aids fitted at the Ashgrove Branch of Health & Hearing. After almost thirty years of trying different hearing aids I had pretty much given up hope of finding any real solutions to my Defence-service related hearing issues. The Danish product (Resound) that Soren Nielsen and his H&H team provide is a big step in front of all the other hearing aids I’ve used over the years. The technology and functions are great, including: Iphone conversations direct to hearing aids (no more dangly devices around the neck!). Microphone that can be worn by the person you’re talking with or placed on a table for group conversations (great in a noisy environment!).

    Nothing fixes severe deafness and no hearing aid is a magic bullet. But if you really need hearing aids and are prepared to pay for a top-up, I can unreservedly recommend the service and products provided by Soren Nielsen and his friendly team. They are genuine and passionate about fixing hearing problems.

  • “I am now hearing the best I can ever remember.”

    I just wanted to drop you a small note of thanks for the service you have so far given me.

    I have had severe hearing loss including consonant hearing loss, tinnitus, cochlear damage, round window repairs and now just old age I guess! These losses come from a mixture of shooting, farming machinery noises, steel & misspent youth! You are the first of four hearing professionals I have dealt with in Australia since 1990 who has understood not only the physiology of my losses but also the research behind and the technology that is now available to assist my hearing aids and was simply frustrated as they were more of an encumbrance than help and this was after up to four months testing of one pair.

    The last test was only two years ago and it went for four months.

    I am now hearing the best I can ever remember and I look forward to a future thanks to you! As a field guide and lecturer my hearing plays an important part in my professional activities and the ability to hear my grandchildren clearly now is giving me great joy.

    I am willing to sing your praises anywhere you need me to because of what you have done for me. thank you.

  • “The benefits of being able to participate with loved ones and interacting with others in everyday situations cannot be overstated.”

    I am extremely happy with the advice given over the past eight years and my current ReSound Hearing Aid tuned to my specific hearing needs.

    Off the shelf devices cannot compete with the results of Soren’s testing and advice, he thoroughly explains the options and provides the appropriate hearing solution at an economic price.

    The benefits of being able to participate with loved ones and interacting with others in everyday situations cannot be overstated and I have no hesitation in recommending Health and Hearing.

  • “Used hearing aids for over 15 years and have never been very satisfied till now.”

    I have used hearing aids for over 15 years and have never been very satisfied till now.

    After carefully assessing my situation, Soren prescribed a pair of virtually invisibly hearing aids. I find them very comfortable and amazingly clear, in fact I rate them a 9.5 out of 10. I could not be happier.

    Mr Keith Antoine

  • “ I strongly recommend Health & Hearing to anyone with a hearing problem.”

    I have been using hearing aids for over 22 years. Unfortunately with increasing age my hearing deteriorated to about the 30% level so I was upgrading my aids every few years to match my increased hearing loss.

    I have purchased aides from a few companies, usually located in the city, however in 2012 I decided to try Health and Hearing at Ashgrove.

    The testing and follow up servicing I received from Soren Nielsen was exceptional, definitely the best I ever received! I strongly recommend Health & Hearing to anyone with a hearing problem.

    Mr Dan Higgins

  • “I am now able to watch television, listen to the radio and participate in social occasions with more success than for many years.”

    The service I have received from Soren Nielsen is second to none.

    I had been wearing hearing aids for 6 years prior to attending the clinic at Health and Hearing in Highpoint Plaza, Ashgrove and had become frustrated with the amount of hearing I was obtaining from them. This hearing loss has forced me to retire from my employment.

    I have appreciated the generosity of time and the effort Soren has put into getting things right for me. I was given the opportunity to trial several aids in an attempt to achieve a better result. Soren’s patience and persistence has resulted in an amazing improvement for me.

    I am now able to watch television, listen to the radio and participate in social occasions with more success than for many years. It is great such on-going support to assist me in coping with this disability.

  • “I Have Clear Hearing, Couldn’t Be Happier”

    I am a Veteran of the Vietnam conflict and write this more as a tribute rather than a testimonial to Soren and his great team at Health & Hearing. No doubt, like many others, my severe hearing loss affected my family life, social life and contributed to my depression. Self consciousness and low self esteem stopped me from having the “roasted peanuts” behind my ears, as I comically like to call hearing aids. Family pressure and a chance meeting with Soren changed my mindset.

    Soren showed me other options for hearing aids and he and his team showed me compassion and care during the process – I couldn’t be happier. Soren has a great respect for Veterans, and a very personal contact with us too, being an ex-military man himself. I cannot speak more highly of Soren and his team at Health & Hearing.

    After a week, and a tune-up, I am most happy with the results. So satisfied that I feel I am vindicated having rejected any fitting of the inferior standard issued aids and thank the professional attitude of Soren Neilsen of Health and Hearing Ashgrove 4060.

    Love your work!

  • “Why I Now Have Hearing Aids”

    I have always rejected being fitted with hearing aids because those I know who have them had, within a month of being fitted dumped them in the drawer. The aids had not assisted them and were more of a hindrance than advantage to hearing. I have had regular hearing tests for decades and knowing the Department for Veterans Affairs (DVA) would pay of “aids to hearing” I was subject to the hard sell but I always rejected hearing aids. Mid 2016, some fifty years after developing my hearing loss due to military service and exposure to battle noise in Vietnam, I heard of an Audio Specialist who seemed to care about war veterans’ and their hearing problems.

    I arranged a hearing test that was conducted is greater detail than any of my previous tests. I discovered this company was not contracted by government. After a lengthy discussion with the specialist during which I discovered much I am now wearing hearing aids. I have had no problems and discovered that the aids fitted are superior to the standard issued and paid for by DVA.

    After a week, and a tune-up, I am most happy with the results. So satisfied that I feel I am vindicated having rejected any fitting of the inferior standard issued aids and thank the professional attitude of Soren Neilsen of Health and Hearing Ashgrove 4060.

    I CAN HEAR FLIES FART!

  • “They are brilliant and I would not hesitate in recommending”

    My name is Mal Black and I am a veteran with a hearing loss attributable to my service.

    Recently, Mr. Soren Nielsen, an audiometrist from Health & Hearing Invisible Hearing Solutions, himself an ex serviceman fitted me with two hearing aids which use the latest technology and materials.

    They are brilliant and I would not hesitate in recommending that any other veteran (or anyone else for that matter) who has a similar problem, look him up. He will assess your needs in a most professional manner.

    He is also fully aware of the procedures and process required by The Department of Veterans Affairs regarding matters such as eligibility etc.

  • “The difference has been absolutely incredible. It’s like a new lease on life.”

    I spent 31 years in the Army, and in the early stages there was no such thing as hearing protection. I had 3 tours overseas and spent the last 6 years as a small arms instructor, so I was out on the range every day. All that stuff really screwed my hearing up. People would sometimes feel insulted because they ask a question and when you don’t answer them, they just think you’re being rude.

    When I initially got hearing aids, they were bloody uncomfortable and I couldn’t get used to the noise. They used to pick up all the background noise and they made a humming noise every time I spoke.

    Soren changed the moulds and re-calibrated my hearing aids, and the difference has been absolutely incredible. It’s like a new lease on life. Before I used to only wear hearing aids if I had to. Now, I can wear them all the time. I’m able to hear what’s going on. Join in the conversation. Even hear the traffic indicators working in the car.

    And of course the wife doesn’t have to walk half way through the house to shout at me anymore. Now she can do it from another room. All the kids and grandkids know when I’ve got them on because, they can’t see them, but all of a sudden I’m hearing what they’re saying.

  • “When you meet somebody like Soren, it gives you a new lease of life.”

    I’m a veteran and and when I first got the standard DVA issue hearing aids, they spent three years in a drawer. I just couldn’t stand them.

    In the end, I just got into a bad habit of watching people talk. If they were talking on the side I’d walk around to the front and see them face up so I could see their words. I was sick and tired of dealing with DVA. Nothing really ever happened with them. There was no follow up or anything like that. You just get pushed to one side.

    But my hearing was really bad, so I went searching on the web and I found Health & Hearing. Soren had experience with veterans, so that’s what led me to him and I’m really happy.

    When you meet somebody like Soren, it gives you a new lease of life.
    It’s great to be looked after for a change. If you really want to start hearing again, not only clarity, but listening to TV and enjoying yourself, you need to go and see Health and Hearing. Just go and see them, and you’ll be overwhelmed.
