Connect Hearing, the #1 physician-referred hearing healthcare provider in Canada, is excited to announce the opening of World of Hearing—North America’s first hearing health store on May 13th at 1331 Lonsdale, North Vancouver (
 World of Hearing is an innovative, modernized concept in hearing health. It empowers people to take control of their hearing health, at their own pace, with direct access to more transparent hearing information, new immersive learning tools, and support from hearing care professionals.

  • Interactive Tables—including built-in touch screens that showcase products and services and encourage clients to engage with staff to learn more.
  • The Experience Room—allowing clients to interactively experience how a hearing solution could help them by presenting real-life situations via large-screen video with 5.1 surround sound.
  • The ultimate in convenience—no referral or appointment is necessary. Visitors can drop in when it works for them.  
  • Complete portfolio of hearing care all in one place, including hearing protection, hearing technology, testing, accessories, access to the world’s most advanced hearing aids, tinnitus therapy, balance treatment and more.  
World of Hearing builds on the global hearing health store concept introduced by Sonova, the world’s leading provider of innovative hearing care solutions. “Allowing today’s clients to customize their experience helps reduce barriers to addressing hearing loss,” shares Lilika Beck, Managing Director, Connect Hearing Canada. “This new flagship store will empower clients on their journey of discovery and provide support with all their hearing health needs.
