Special Offer: Musician Ear Protection

Are you a Musician, Singer or Performer? Are you concerned with protecting your hearing and improving your performance ability? Professional musicians are 57% more likely to suffer from tinnitus (that annoying ringing in your ears) and 3.6 times more likely to suffer from noise-induced deafness. While some of these numbers are staggering, audiology is able to help! You may have seen a previous blog post about the benefits of Musician Ear Protection and Musician Monitors. We are offering incentives to improve your ability to protect your hearing.

Horizon Audiology is able to fit patients with musician ear protection and musician monitors. We have partnered with Westone to provide our clients with entry level through high-end musician ear plugs. The technology protects your ears and enhance your performance ability by blocking out distracting background noise. Most of all, it will ensure that your ability to communicate with friends, family and dedicated fans pre and post show goes unaffected! We are passionate about protecting our patient’s hearing and encourage you to make an appointment and learn how we can help you.

To that end, in the month of September, we are offering a 25% DISCOUNT on all Westone Musician products. Schedule an appointment in one of our East Windsor or Pennington locations and see how we can help to provide you with just the right technology for your listening needs.

Zounds Hearing Aids

Horizon Audiology is excited to be a provider of the rechargeable hearing aids, “Zounds”. The aids focus on speech clarity in conversation. They use “Intuitive Noise Cancellation”, a technology trademarked by the company, which helps users to focus on a desired conversation and block out distracting background noise in busy environments. We were able to sit down with owner of Horizon Audiology, Dr. Jane Brady AuD, to learn more about Zounds. 

What features of the Zounds hearing aids are you most excited to share with patients and how does the rechargeable aspect of the aids improve people’s audiologic experience? 

Dr. Brady: The Zounds product line includes rechargeablity which is a feature many individuals find important.

Zounds is proud to share that their hearing aids perform well in high frequency ranges, between 5,000 Hz and 8,000 Hz. What does this mean?

Dr. Brady: This means critical high frequency consonant sounds become more audible. These high frequency sounds are most critical to people understanding an audible message. Because the Zounds aids are able to amplify sounds in these high frequency ranges, they give users a clearer signal in quiet and in noise than some other aids. 

Zounds hearing aids also use “Dynamic Feedback Cancellation” technology. What does this mean and how does it benefit patients? 

Dr. Brady: Dynamic Feedback is a feature which reduces the annoying feedback patients experience with elevated amounts of high frequency gain. With an effective feedback suppression system, increased high frequency gain targets are matched and are attainable. 

What is the ShockSound Suppression system that the Zounds Aids use?

Dr. Brady: The hearing aids only amplify useful sounds, such as conversation and computer “bings” and signals, and prevent the amplification of loud painful sounds, such as glass shattering, beyond their comfort level.

Because of these features, what types of patients would have their hearing most positively affected by a Zounds hearing aid?

Dr. Brady: Anybody who finds themselves asking a coworker or family member to repeat themselves, someone who may be struggling when they are out to eat with friends or family, a listener who can’t always hear the soft voices of their grandchildren, and anybody who would like the benefits of a rechargeable battery would benefit from a Zounds hearing aid.

If you are a patient who falls under these categories above, how should you proceed to find out more information about the aids? 

Dr. Brady: The first step to obtaining hearing aids is to schedule a visit with one of our audiologist for a hearing test.  There, we will assess hearing across a frequency, determine speech discrimination ability to record clarity in quiet and in noise. In addition, we will assess middle ear function via tympanometry and outer hair cell function as well.

These are all tests completed at our Pennington or East Windsor locations.  After testing, we will review results, and discuss listening goals and listening needs.  After this thorough assessment, we will make recommendations for a product that best suits your needs.

Visit our website here or call (609) 448-9730 if you are interested in a Zounds Hearing Aid and would like to make an appointment with one of our audiologists to learn how you can benefit from amplified hearing.
