Your Trusted Hearing Care Experts in Walla Walla, WA
Why Do So Many People, Organizations, and Physicians Trust Us?
The story of Walla Walla, WA first began when the Lewis and Clark expedition encountered the Walawalałáma (Walla Walla people) near the mouth of Walla Walla River in 1806. Fort Walla Walla, established in 1818, was a fur trading outpost run by Hudson’s Bay Company (HBC), which made our community an important commercial hub in the area, but like so many western towns, its boom came because of the gold rush and the railroad.
After the gold rush died out, the production of onions, apples, peas, and wine grapes in Walla Walla, referred to as the “cradle of Pacific Northwest” and the “garden city”, came to rely on agricultural production that is still the primary economic resource today. Named the USA Today’s Readers’ Choice “Best Wine Region” in 2020 and 2021 has added one more distinguished nickname to the list, recognizing the more than 120 wineries in the Walla Walla River Valley.

COMPREHENSIVE HEARING ASSESSMENTS
Your Journey to Better Hearing Starts with a Comprehensive Hearing Assessment
Online sites and big box retail stores have made it easier to have your hearing tested and purchase a hearing device without seeing a doctor of audiology.
However, trusting the internet or a retail employee to diagnose and treat your hearing challenges is as destructive to your hearing health as asking them to diagnose and treat any other medical condition. Purchasing and wearing the wrong hearing device that is not programmed properly can do a lot of damage to your hearing rather than helping it.
Rather than running the risk of doing further damage to your hearing, the critical first step on your journey to better hearing should be a comprehensive hearing assessment conducted by a qualified doctor of audiology. Besides providing a highly accurate diagnosis of the type and severity of your hearing loss, our audiologists use your hearing test to personalize the correct treatment solution to overcome your hearing challenges.

It’s been like opening the closed blinds on a window and discovering the big, beautiful world outside
Bryan realised that he had a hearing problem when he was having to ask people to repeat themselves. He was feeling embarrassed and left out of conversations.
“I was worried that Audiology was another way for a professional to take money out of my pocket and that hearing aids wouldn’t work for me, but at Sound Audiology the doctors really listened to me to understand my issues, what I wanted to achieve, and were so empathetic. WOW is all I can say.”
You can trust Sound Audiology to help you
“I started having hearing issues years ago. Before making an appointment at Sound Audiology, I was worried about how much it would cost and whether hearing aids would actually make my hearing any better.”
“All the staff really cared about me and wanted to help straight away. Hearing aids have changed the way I interact with my family. They no longer have to repeat everything.”
Sound Audiology is one of the best
“I noticed my hearing loss over 25 years ago. Before visiting the clinic, I felt like I needed to walk around with a sign saying ‘I’m not ignoring you, I’m deaf’, but now I can have normal conversations.
Sound Audiology were not only professional at my appointment but also friendly and knowledgeable.”
I didn’t realize how much I was missing until I got my hearing aids
Denny had suffered with ringing in his ears for over 40 years, but it wasn’t until his wife went for a hearing test that he thought he should have one too.
“I didn’t really think I had a problem, so I had no fears or concerns. It wasn’t until my wife complained about her hearing that I decided to investigate my own hearing challenges.”
