Hello there,

It’s Tracy here with the February newsletter.

This month is all about love and the special people in our lives. At Audicles Hearing Services, this includes our wonderful patients.

So, at the beginning of February, we decided to do something different – we let you do the talking!

For the first 14 days of February, we shared our patients’ stories, videos, and testimonials on our Facebook page.

We were moved by their heartwarming stories and we hope their kind words have boosted the confidence in those who are currently struggling with an untreated treating hearing loss to come in and see us for a hearing test.

Visit our Facebook page to find out about our exciting Valentine’s Day announcement!

Share the Love

You can share the love further by talking to your loved ones about getting a head start on their hearing health – even if they think their hearing is good.

A baseline test will mark the beginning of their new hearing journey and give us something to compare their hearing to at future visits. This way, we can address the slightest of problems before they become large ones.

Yes, the gift of good hearing is the perfect way to say “I love you” this month, and we would be pleased to meet those dearest to you.

Your loved ones will be in good hands and they’ll be grateful for your encouragement and support.

Simply give us a call to book an appointment today.

Hearing Health Tip

Loud noises, such as rock concerts and machinery, can damage our hearing over time, but did you know that wind can, too?

That’s right – cruising in your convertible, racing down a hill on your bicycle, or riding your motorcycle can affect your hearing due to the noise created by wind at high speeds.

Research shows that long exposure to buffeting winds while riding in a top-down convertible or on a motorcycle can cause hearing damage. Noise increases by about 15 dB, which means that hearing damage can start at 55 mph.

Additionally, cyclists can face an eardrum rupture just by riding their bicycle on flat terrain daily. However, if you’re into serious racing, the wind’s sound levels can reach as much as 120 dB if racing downhill. 120 dB means immediate danger to your ears.

The solution? Wearing appropriate ear protection will prevent ear damage and let you stay on the road enjoying your ride.
