The Sounds of Life

At CQ Hearing we are passionate about Hearing. Hearing connects us with, Family, Workmates, Teachers, Carers, Friends, and Sounds in our environment. Hearing is also important for Personal Safety and Environmental Awareness. Indeed, hearing and communication is central to life.

When a hearing loss is present it can put limits on your life. But it need not. In most cases Hearing loss can be treated very successfully.

While there is no going back to normal hearing, we are getting very close.

It’s never too late to treat a hearing loss. However, the earlier the better.

Reconnecting to your world

Are all hearing aids the same? No. Hearing aids range in:

  • Style and size
  • Technology
  • Flexibility
  • Microphone array
  • Effectiveness within a noisy environment

All of the above factors are reflected in price. There are also many different manufacturers. CQ Hearing is not owned or tied to a single hearing aid manufacturer and so we can select the best brand available at the best price.

Hearing devices reflect cutting edge technology. In the same way as mobile phones have evolved over the last 5 years so haver hearing devices. Recent Changes include:

  • Size – hearing devices have become smaller and much more discrete
  • Much better comfort
  • More natural sound
  • No whistling
  • Bluetooth for connecting with phones and other devices
  • Better processing speed
  • Better performance in busy listening environments
  • Greater resistance to moisture damage
  • Rechargeable batteries
  • Better technology in even the basic entry level aids

Hearing Aid Style and Sizes

The “style” of a hearing aid refers to what a hearing device looks like which also determines how it is worn. For example, some devices fit into the ear canal while others have a piece behind the ear and an ear mould or very small speaker and dome sitting in the ear. Below we have provided photographs of the popular styles of aids but your CQ Hearing Audiologist will help you select the style that is best for you:
