This is a website about hearing in 2020.
Holiday and family celebrations often generate more than happy memories, agreements to not discuss politics, another painful rendition of the family song, rich food, and heartburn.
Noisy gatherings can identify emerging communication difficulties: the missed punch line, the "could you turn that up a bit please" or "come again?" phrases occurring with greater frequency.

You're invited to search our website for information relevant to your pursuit of improved hearing at all the important events in your life. Welcome, thank you for your visit!
