Audiometrist David Hine shows the different hearing aids.

It's so frustrating when a voice or a noise is hard to hear - but when was the last time you had your hearing tested?

David Hine is an audiometrist based in Townsville who travels to Mount Isa every six-weeks to provide a service to the North West.

Audiometrists carry out audiometric tests designed to measure a person's level of hearing and fit suitable hearing aids. They can specialise in a number of fields, such as Clinical Audiometrist, Hearing Aid Audiometrist and Industrial Screening Audiometrist.

David has over twenty years of experience and has seen some dramatic changes and advances in hearing aids over that time.
