Jim purchased HEARINC in 2001 to develop it in to a full audiology practice. As a native to Canton, OH, he received his B.S. in Aerospace and Manufacturing from Kent State University in 1973. Jim became interested in audiology in 1998 when his father, grandfather, and several uncles---who worked in industry and served in World War II---were complaining about solutions to hearing loss.
With a corporate background in problem diagnostics and solutions applications, Jim felt he could take a different approach to correcting hearing loss, one that restores patients to the most active lifestyle possible.

“I had lots of corrosion in my left hearing aid and it was thoroughly restored. My right hearing aid was repaired also and I am very pleased. ”

“I liked her patience with my father-in-law and her ability to explain things in laymen's terms to him.”
“I have had hearing loss for over 15 years. However it has only been for the past 7 years that I actually done something about it. When I initially discovered I had an issue I went to a chain store thinking that all hearing aids and hearing solutions are the same. I was WRONG! The guy sold me a pair of hearing aids that didn’t improve my hearing, it made it worse. I said it was like I was walking around with earplugs in. As a result I gave up thinking that it was better to go without hearing aids. Fast forward to present time. I decided to give it one more chance this time did a little research before I bought my hearing aids. I discovered HEARINC and was pleased with the fact that the company had an experienced staff that was also very qualified. I met with Jim Morris who first explained that he was going to first give me a little bit of background on how hearing loss can be treated with quality and not just volume. See most TV ads and other low quality hearing aids make up for hearing loss by making everything louder. HEARINC showed me that with a quality hearing aid you can hear sounds that are crisp and clear without just making them louder. After looking at the options I had available I purchased Oticon brand because the digital technology allows the instrument to work in conjunction with your brain, it automatically adjusts and optimizes the sound. In other words you hear realistic sounds not just loud noise. The service that HEARINC provides after the sale is what really matters. I’ve had occasions to have my hearing aids adjusted as my needs change. Every time they gave me the same top notch service they gave me when I made my first purchase. Every person at HEARINC treats me with respect and dignity. They always want me to be 100% satisfied. On an occasion they had to send mine back into the factory and they gave me a loaner pair while mine were being fixed. Even with the loaner pair they wanted to make sure that that pair was calibrated to match my hearing needs. I’ll sum up my thoughts in a simple fashion. Buying your hearing aids is similar to buying oats for a horse. You can buy cheap inexpensive oats that have already been through the horse, or you can pay a little more and you will have clean fresh oats! The choice is yours but I can tell you I like my hearing to be crisp, clear and of good quality! ”
“They were very courteous.”
