Can You Hear the Sounds of Summer?

Published on Aug, 17, 2020

Summer is starting to come to an end so it's a great time to be outside surrounded by the sounds of nature before it's too late! But we want to know: Have you been able to experience all your favourite sounds of the season? We love when our customers tell us about sounds they are now able to hear with hearing aids

From sunrise to sunset, summer brings countless sounds, whether you’re adventuring in the great outdoors, spending time with loved ones, or even just relaxing in your backyard. These sounds all around you add color to your experiences and enrich your life.

What are your favourite summer sounds? If you want to impress yourself, make a list of the summertime sounds you hear during the day. The sounds can really add up! Here’s a little inspiration to help you get started.

On a morning walk

You never know what you might hear on a stroll through your neighborhood or favourite park:


  • Local birds chipping (can you identify them?) 
  • Rustling of leaves around you
  • The babbling of a nearby stream 
  • The voice of your walking companion


At lunchtime

Set a lunch date with your spouse, favourite cousin, or close friend at an outdoor café:

  • Specials of the day from your soft-spoken server
  • Conversations happening all around you
  • A whispered joke or secret

Afternoon at leisure

The pace may slow down a bit as the day gets hotter — but there’s still plenty to be heard:

  • The jingling music of an ice cream truck in your neighborhood
  • The clunk of a golf ball hitting the bottom of the cup
  • Bumble bees buzzing in the garden

An easygoing evening

As your day winds down, your ears may become even more “tuned in” to the sounds around you:

  • The swish of a lawn sprinkler
  • Burgers, steaks or chicken sizzling on the grill
  • Conversation around the picnic table
  • A cricket’s lullaby

Road trips

Road noise can be all consuming and make it difficult to understand the voices  around you, especially if you’re driving with the window down. Fortunately,  many hearing aids have speech isolation and motion detection to help keep you in the conversation, no matter where the passengers’ voices are.


When the crowd is roaring, directional focus in our hearing aids helps you listen more comfortably by reducing unwanted noise around you — allowing you to enjoy the ballgame with those you love.


The wireless windscreen feature in hearing aids automatically removes the wind noise and allows you to hear the sounds or voices that you want to wear.

Family reunions

With summer coming to an end, now’s the time to do something about your hearing loss. Don’t miss out on catching up with your family.
