Trusted Local Hearing Care Available For Hamden, CT

Though our neighbor to the south tends to garner more fame, Hamden, CT lives up to its nickname: the Land of the Sleeping Giant. Not long after Eli Whitley transformed American agriculture with the cotton gin, he began to produce arms for the US government in Hamden, modernized manufacturing through the concept of interchangeable parts.

An influx of Irish and Italian immigrants had a significant impact on the cultural makeup of Hamden throughout the 19th and 20th centuries. In fact, those in the New Haven area looking for authentic Italian cuisine are still sent north to our community. Though the southern extreme of our community is a little different than that of our urban neighbor, we still enjoy rural culture in the north.

The distinguished neighborhood of Mount Carmel, located on Sleeping Giant hill, Freedom Park, the Ghost Parking Lot, a notable roadside public art installation located in front of the Hamden Plaza, and the Eli Whitney Museum are all features of our community best enjoyed by those with better hearing. The Auditory and Vestibular Institute of New England (AVI New England) plays a major role in making that happen.

Dr. Bauman, one of our community’s sleeping giants and co-founder of AVI New England, continues to have a major impact on the hearing care industry, making it possible for us to deliver personalized and local solutions that address hearing loss, tinnitus, sound sensitivity issues, or balance disorders to Hamden, CT and surrounding communities.

How Can We Help?

Hearing Assessments

When Was Your Last Hearing Test?

multi coloured blocks

Most people regularly have their eyes, teeth and bloodwork tested but rarely do they include checking their hearing.

It is reported that hearing loss is the third most common physical health condition, impacting globally 1 in 8 individuals. The World Health Organization predicts that hearing loss will almost double in the next 30 years; this makes a regular hearing assessment critically important.

The biggest challenge is that hearing loss often occurs slowly and gradually, making it almost impossible to notice on a day-to-day change.

Typically, our loved ones are first to notice that we are experiencing a hearing challenge before we do.

Having a regular hearing assessment allows for early detection of hearing loss ensuring the right preventive measures are taken so that your hearing health is optimally cared for.

If you are concerned about your hearing or a loved one’s hearing, we highly encouraged you to schedule a hearing assessment. It is quick, non-invasive, and you’ll receive the results immediately.

Prescription Hearing Aid Technology

Helping You to Find the Right Prescription Hearing Aid Technology Based on Your Unique Circumstances, Lifestyle, and Budget

Having invented the most widely used hearing aid in the world, it is fair to say that Dr. Bauman, an engineer and an audiologist, and his team, know best about the auditory mechanism, the brain associated with speech and language and the electronics of hearing devices to make the best recommendation for your individualized hearing issues.

Despite the significant progression in hearing technology over the past decade, it is predicted by the World Health Organization, that 83% of people who can

benefit from hearing technology are still reluctant to take first step toward better hearing. There is still stigma associated with wearing hearing aids. There remains a false belief that hearing aids are the large, clunky devices that our grandparents used to wear. The truth is today’s hearing technology is incredibly small, discreet, and smart.

Hearing devices no longer just magnify the sounds you hear, now they smartly have the capability to amplify your hearing and your life, allowing you to engage and enjoy your family and friends.
