Better Hearing for Bruce

Information technology specialist, Bruce Eagle is one of the two-thirds of Australians who suffer from tinnitus at some point in their life.

Frustrated with the constant ringing noise in his ears and a mild but increasingly noticeable hearing loss, Bruce, aged 63, turned to Hear and Say for a hearing test.

Now fitted with hearing aids specifically matched to his type of hearing loss and day-to-day needs, Bruce said he had already noticed a difference in the few months since wearing them.

“Beforehand people seemed to be mumbling in conversations, but now I better understand what they’re saying in both quiet and noisy environments, and my tinnitus isn’t worsening,” said Bruce.

“Going through Hear and Say meant that I could be assured that they were independent and not aligned with any particular manufacturers, meaning my hearing aids really are best meeting my needs. They are also so small that they’re hardly noticeable when I’m wearing them.”

Bruce, with a self-confessed enthusiasm for all things technology and computing, noted that he also loved the Bluetooth capabilities – enabling him to stream phone calls and even the radio straight from his smartphone.

Having now been through the experience of getting hearing aids himself, Bruce encouraged others to take that first step with a hearing test no matter how hesitant they may feel.

“It’s actually been a pleasure to work with Hear and Say and overall a lovely experience that I’d happily recommend to others,” said Bruce.

“My advice to others is to stop procrastinating, go get your hearing checked and then consider your options – and do it through Hear and Say!”


Maia’s Story

At 9.10pm on 24 October 2013 our beautiful daughter Maia was born. 

The moment of elation was short-lived as we immediately noticed her left ear was missing. I frantically looked to the medical team around me for answers but received none.

Panic set in as we waited 4 days in hospital for an ENT to explain her condition, by which point we already had all the answers from Simone, who runs the Microtia and Atresia Program at Hear and Say.
