When it applies to hearing, each one of us has a unique hearing range; some of us can hear higher or lower ranges of sound while others cannot. Therefore, as individuals, you need to have your hearing tested so we can prescribe the best and latest hearing aid technology. Come in and hear what you've been missing.
