Mr Hockney hears the sounds he loves

Even with the use of hearing aids, John Hockney found it difficult to follow conversations in noisy social settings and over distance.

As a member of a book club and a leader of a local historical society, not being able to hear and understand was a constant frustration.

But a visit to Australian Hearing, where he was recommended an FM system to use with his hearing aids, has completely changed Mr Hockney’s ability to participate and communicate in the activities he loves.

Mr Hockney says he found the benefits of using an FM system immediate.

"I haven’t heard like this for 30 years,” he says. “Australian Hearing has changed my life for the better.”
