A few decades ago someone with hearing problems could be clearly pin pointed by the ear trumpet protruding from their ear. Nowadays hearing disabilities are no biggie, treated just like any other tiny handicap and is no longer only related to old people. Make use of today’s Groupon and get your ears tested by a qualified audiologist at LifeSound for R180.

A diagnostic test doesn’t mean you’ll necessarily walk out with a hearing aid hooked around your ear, but it might just prevent you from having to do so one day. After all, prevention is better than cure. Just like with an eye test, a hearing test is quick, easy and nothing to be ashamed of. All patients are assessed by a resident qualified audiologist with slim fingers that treat you with as much care as they would your ear drum.
In a world overrun with honking car horns and mp3 players with too high a maximum volume level, you’re bound to encounter patients of all ages in the LifeSound waiting room. Conveniently located in The Gateway Theatre of Shopping, it’s no white room smelling of antiseptics with dog eared farming magazines on the coffee table. Add a hearing test to your monthly grocery shopping trip or pop by while the rest of the family is getting the popcorn for the movie.
Hearing fact: In ancient times it was believed that a little man called Achmat sat in the ear, whispering everything into the ear drum. The loss of hearing was ascribed to the death or injury of Achmat. However this resulted in people with bad hearing attacking every person named Achmat and trying to stuff him in their ear. Many years passed when no mother named their child Achmat.
