The field of audiology has come a long way in recent years, with advancements in technology leading to significant improvements in hearing aid devices and hearing loss treatments. Strauss Audiology is at the forefront of this progress, utilising the latest ear sound technology to provide top-quality hearing care for patients.

Here’s a closer look at some of the modern ear sound technology used by Strauss Audiology in Cape Town:

Real Ear Measurement (REM)

As mentioned in our previous blog, REM is a vital tool in hearing aid fitting. Strauss Audiology in Cape Town uses state-of-the-art equipment to measure the sound that reaches the eardrum of the hearing aid wearer. This data is then used to adjust the settings of the hearing aid to ensure that it is providing the appropriate level of amplification. REM helps to ensure that the patient is satisfied with their hearing aid and is comfortable using it in their daily life.

Hearing Aid Apps

Many modern hearing aids now come with apps that allow users to control their hearing aids with their smartphones. Strauss Audiology offers a variety of hearing aids with app compatibility, allowing patients to adjust settings, stream music or phone calls, and even locate their hearing aids if lost. With the convenience of these apps, patients can personalise their hearing experience without having to go to a clinic.


Tele-audiology is an emerging field that allows patients to receive audiology services remotely. Strauss Audiology offers this service, providing virtual consultations and hearing aid fittings to patients in the comfort of their own homes. Tele-audiology can also be used for follow-up appointments, troubleshooting, and remote hearing aid adjustments. This technology has proven particularly useful during the COVID-19 pandemic, allowing patients to receive the care they need while reducing the risk of exposure.

Tinnitus Treatment

Tinnitus, or ringing in the ears, can be a frustrating and sometimes debilitating condition. Strauss Audiology offers a variety of modern tinnitus treatment options, including sound therapy and counselling. Sound therapy involves using external sound sources to help patients manage their tinnitus symptoms. Strauss Audiology uses a variety of sound therapy options, including hearing aids with built-in sound generators, personalised sound therapy, and customized ear-level sound generators.

In Conclusion

The modern ear sound technology used offers a range of benefits for patients, from improved hearing aid fitting accuracy to remote audiology services.
