A message from Modern Hearing Solutions - Akron about COVID-19:
I’ve been in the hearing health industry for 30 years and have devoted my career to helping solve the problems of daily life caused by hearing loss.
First, as a technician, I attained the fundamental knowledge of hearing aid technology and practical skills from seeing how technology provides a better hearing experience if fit properly. I learned how variances in technology, testing, and fitting techniques impact success in hearing loss treatment and overall patient satisfaction. Because I was distressed by the level of patient care and attention available in our industry, I opened our first hearing center in 1994, for the sole purpose of focusing on our patient’s needs first. I have been doing that ever since, and I lead my team of professionals with this objective each day.
Hearing loss has a profound (negative) impact on those afflicted, but also on their loved ones. It touches every facet of life, health, mental well-being, and every interaction and relationship. Effective and professional treatment can profoundly change this.
In every interaction, we start by focusing on how to improve lives with better hearing. With solutions, not sales. We start by listening — to patients and to their loved ones. Our work and our success are based on what we learn from this process and our unique capability to provide the most diverse set of solutions available. Sometimes that means fixing a poorly fit hearing aid. Sometimes it means introducing our patient to the world of better hearing and options to achieve it.
We only fit the latest technology and the best products available anywhere in the world. We provide unsurpassed care (and caring). Because we are independent (not a franchise), we can offer the best solution or product to fit a patient’s needs, loss, lifestyle, and budget. With our low price guarantee and financing options, the barriers to treatment are eliminated. Our five full-time offices, our philosophy, and dedication to continuous training and education make us the premier provider in the area.

“Had beltone before..insurance changed to truncating and went to modern hearing. Everyone has been so helpful and nice”
“Kylie Woods was able after testing my hearing to select, fit and instruct. Her knowledge allowed me to leave with a level of comfort to interact and continue to enjoy the world of voices and sound. Thank you.”
“I highly recommend the services of Modern Hearing. The whole staff at the Akron office was excellent. Very personable and informative and made you feel at ease from the first phone call. Audiologist Kyle Woods was exceptional and spent the necessary time to explain my hearing challenges and how best to correct them. And to top it off, I have not said, “WHAT?” To my wife all week... ”
“I was in dire need of supplies for my Phonak Hearing AIDS, I called Modern Hearing and they said no problem we have supplies. I’m glad that they are minutes from my house and that they can take care of getting me supplies, updating my hearing test and most importantly adjusting my hearing aids. Omallah Bush is fantastic, she walked me thru the testing process, very patient, caring, and listened to my needs, making adjustments to my hearing aids along the way. Their receptionist is great, has knowledge of the hearing aids and answered any concerns I had. Losing hearing is difficult enough, with a caring staff it makes it easier, Modern Hearing is a great place, I’m very pleased!”
“I had a very good experience from the time I arrived, until the time I left. Everyone was friendly and professional. My audiologist was Kyle Woods, and she was great. I wasn't pressured to buy anything and she listened to all my concerns. I have been to other hearing places, so I have something to compare to. They use the most modern equipment and up to date technology, for both testing and the hearing aids they sell, I have been a customer since 2016. My visit was at the Akron office.”
