Hello there,

It’s Tracy here from Audicles Hearing Services. It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to our new monthly newsletter.

Each month, I’ll bring you informative articles on your hearing health, and tips to help you stay up to date on all the latest news and keep your hearing a top priority.

2019 is rapidly coming to a close.  I hope this year has been a good year for you and that your hearing is performing at its best. And as the winter holidays approach, may you thoroughly enjoy and relish every moment – whether it’s socializing with your family, friends, or colleagues.

However, if you have any questions or concerns about your hearing, don’t hesitate to give us a call.

From everyone at Audicles Hearing Services, we hope you have a wonderful holiday season. Thank you for your patronage this year. We’re looking forward to 2020 with many more good things to come!

Now, let’s see what this month’s issue has in store for you…

Hearing Health Tip

Tis the season for going out to eat with friends and family. However, finding a quiet restaurant can be a challenge at this time of the year.

If you have a hearing loss, tinnitus, or a sensory disorder, too much noise can make your symptoms worse. If your hearing is good, what impact will lots of noise have on it?

But now there are two apps that can help you out. They can identify local restaurants and cafes that are gentler on the ears. Here’s a brief look at them:

Soundprint: View a map of local restaurants along with their sound decibel rating. You can also test the decibel levels at the restaurant you’re at to see if the environment is too loud. Share your findings by uploading them to the app. To find out more and to download, click here.

iHearU: Find ear-friendly restaurants worldwide. Any location rated four noise bars or less is considered a safe environment. You can also find establishments that offer assistive hearing systems. Additionally, you can report on quiet locations and add them to the app. Going to a livelier restaurant? Find out just how noisy it is and then decide if you want to wear ear protection.
