Hearing Matters magazine

Hearing Matters is a great way to stay up to date with our campaigns and events, news and stories from across the deaf and hard of hearing sector, and advances in research and technology.


From 2011-2017, this has been a bi-annual publication. From 2018, this is a quarterly publication.


This winter issue of Hearing Matters makes great reading, with a thought-provoking story about Kate Whale, a member of Deaf Children New Zealand, whose son James was born profoundly deaf.

Autumn 2018

You'll notice this issue features a lot of exciting news about hearing research. We can take pride in the knowledge that our researchers here in New Zealand are on the world stage - leading the way in significant areas including hearing loss prevention, developing progressive treatment options for those with hearing loss, and evaluating treatments to manage chronic conditions such as tinnitus. Ultimately, the goal for all of this is to greatly improve patient's lives.
