We fit the latest in digital hearing devices from leading hearing aid manufacturers. There are many factors in selecting an appropriate hearing devices including the type of hearing loss, cosmetics, lifestyle, and personal preference.

Soundhealth supports the Children’s Surgical Centre, an NGO charity hospital that provides free life-changing ear surgery and hearing devices to the poor in Cambodia. We support research and training programs to help improve access to ear care in Cambodia.
