About Soren

My name is Soren Nielsen, I was born in Denmark and have lived in Australia for over 25 years now. I have quite a unique professional background that sets me apart from most people in the hearing industry.

I have worked in senior management for three of the largest hearing aid manufacturers in the world. This has given me access to research and development information that is not shared with the general public. This rare knowledge has given me an insight into hearing aids and hearing aid calibration that only very few audiologists know about.

What does this mean to you… This means you will have perfectly calibrated hearing aids tuned to perfection so you can hear well even in a noisy environment. My special way of setting up the hearing aids is providing perfect audibility at home, and great speech clarity in noisy places. A recent client outcome study found that our average client satisfaction rate is 8.6 out of 10.

I am by nature a very friendly and easy-going person, I enjoy the connection with my clients. It is important to me that our clients feel they are treated with kindness and respect.

I am proud of the fact that I have been appointed Honorary Consul, by her Royal Highness Queen Margaret II of Denmark. This allows me to help and assist the Danish community in Queensland, doing my part in making the world a better place.

About Health and Hearing

Australians are often shocked to discover most hearing clinics are actually owned by hearing aid manufacturers or global retail chains. In many cases, these ‘clinics’ are really just shops designed to sell their brand of hearing aids.

Independence is important to us, and we think it should be important to you too! As you make your selection across various hearing providers, you might be surprised to learn that most hearing clinics have been acquired or opened by hearing aid manufacturers or global retail chains—making them well-disguised vehicles for pushing their own range of hearing aids.

This is why we are so proud to be independent. We work hard to find the best treatments from the full range of available solutions, including tinnitus management, rehabilitation, counselling, and hearing aids from all leading manufacturers. We are particularly passionate about invisible hearing aids, so no-one but you needs to know you are wearing one.

We stock all types of hearing aids and are respected specialists in invisible hearing aids. The latest ‘invisible’ technology is so small it allows you to regain clear, confident hearing and fullness of life without anybody knowing you’re wearing a hearing aid. See our hearing aids.

Our qualified, experienced technicians take extra time with your hearing test and offer independent, expert advice to ensure you get the best hearing aid for your condition, lifestyle and budget.

We have four clinics (Ashgrove, Chermside, Kenmore and Carina) and serve thousands of patients every year. And we continue to conduct extensive research to ensure we are providing the best treatments from the full range of available solutions, including tinnitus management, rehabilitation, counselling, and hearing aids from all leading manufacturers with no obligation to any one brand.

In many hearing aid ‘shops’, your Hearing Test Technician is trained in the same way a Barista is trained to make coffee. While they may be able to perform the function of a hearing test, they often lack the in-depth knowledge and experience of a trained Audiometrist. They are also often rushed with frequent bookings and hurried hearing tests. Which means they may not detect the full spectrum of your hearing condition.

Your hearing test at ‘Health & Hearing’ is conducted by a qualified Audiometrist. For maximum privacy and concentration, you sit comfortably in a modern sound-proof booth. There is no rush – your Audiometrist will guide you at your own pace to ensure your Baseline Hearing Result is accurate.

You will receive the results immediately. If the test shows hearing loss, your Audiometrist will provide independent, expert recommendations on solutions for improve your hearing.
