Hearing loss usually develops almost unnoticeably.
Your ability to hear well can gradually worsen until many of the familiar sounds are lost and many situations become too difficult.
Statistics show that three million Australians experience some difficulty with their hearing, and after the age of sixty more than 50 per cent will have some degree of hearing loss.
More often than not, years of effortless conversation and clear sound are lost, either because we put off getting the help we need, or because we simply may not acknowledge our hearing loss. So our world can become quieter as all the softer sounds of life fade.
"Modern hearing instruments use digital technology."
- Capital Sleep
Without realising it we use more and more energy just to listen. But despite the extra effort, misunderstandings become more frequent.
In the past, many of us would just put up with hearing loss because old-fashioned hearing aids were uncomfortable to use and had annoying side effects. That's no longer the case.
Hearing instruments have come a long way in the past few years.
Modern hearing instruments use digital technology.
They are smart, sophisticated and comfortable to use and can be individually tuned to suit your personal lifestyle.
Research also shows that the majority of those using hearing instruments wished they had acted much sooner.
The testing process is fast, easy and painless. In the vast majority of cases, there is a straightforward solution to help you hear better.
Capital Sleep and Hearing uses a concept to let you hear these features for yourself. In order to be able to demonstrate the benefit of modern solutions, Capital Sleep and Hearing utilises an innovative technique which allows you to trial, or road test, advanced hearing aids and experience the difference they can make.
