BBC Interview For Our Audiologist

‘Before you pick up any instrument or think about singing a single word if your hearing is impaired your performance will be too’.

On the 26th of September our very own hearing protection specialist and hearing aid audiologist, Tom Dixon was asked by the BBC introducing producer Andrew Marston to attend a local live recording at the Oxford Arms in Kington, Herefordshire. He was interviewed about all the work he is doing locally to raise awareness of hearing loss and tinnitus through overexposure to loud music. ‘musicians don’t realise how important protecting their hearing is until it’s too late’, Tom told Andy that he see lots of people at his Worcester Hearing Centre that are suffering from the side effects of loud music, there is no need for it, the protection is out there it just needs to be known about and worn. Tom works with Tower studio’s to provide regular talks to musicians trying to raise awareness to the side effects of loud noise.

The Worcester Hearing Centre provides a very comprehensive service for musicians including industry standard custom made filtered hearing protection and in ear monitors. Every client receives a full diagnostic hearing evaluation, ear health examination and annual hearing check reviews free of charge.
