Announces major brand refresh and recent company milestones

Hearing Health & Technology Matters (HHTM), an organization bridging the knowledge gaps in treating hearing loss, is proud to celebrate its 7 year anniversary. The HHTM website is a resource for people who share the belief that Hearing Health & Technology Matters!

The editor’s at HHTM strive to provide timely information and lively insights to everyone who cares about hearing loss.

“Being a member of the HHTM writing team for the past 7 years and to see its growth has been exciting. People with hearing loss tell me that learning more about hearing and the view from the professional side has helped them deal better with their personal hearing loss,” said Gael Hannan, editor of the Better Hearing Consumer.

“Hearing Health & Technology Matters has filled a long-needed gap in the hearing healthcare industry; a series of reasoned and thoughtful blogs touching on underlying causes of issues without being constrained by any one ‘party line’,” said Dr. Marshall Chasin, an expert on music and hearing issues and editor of Hear the Music.


  • Over the past 12 months, HHTM has exceeded 1 million unique pageviews. Since January 2018, the site has already witnessed greater than 20% growth in visits compared to 2017.
  • January 2018: Brian Taylor, AuD, was named Editor-In-Chief of HHTM and Amyn Amlani, PhD, was welcomed as new section editor of Hearing Economics.
  • March 2018: HHTM underwent a significant brand refresh. The website undertook major updates, including a new company logo. This update significantly enhanced the overall performance of the site and user experience.
  • March 2018: HHTM launched new section, Innovations in Hearing Healthcare, and welcomed new editor, Bopanna B. Ballachanda, PhD.
  • March 2018: HHTM’s Jane Madell, PhD, editor of Hearing and Kids, and Emmy and Peabody Award-winning director, producer, writer and cinematographer Irene Taylor Brodsky, premiered their documentary The Listening Project on March 9th at the American Cochlear Implant Alliance’s (ACIA) annual scientific meeting in Washington, DC.

“I take great pride in my role of Editor In Chief of the Hearing News Watch at HHTM. We strive to be an independent source of accurate and timely information. Like all credible journalists, our top priority is to inform our readers, who are combination of hearing healthcare professionals and lay-people, with unbiased reporting and thoughtful opinions about topics related to hearing healthcare,” said Dr. Brian Taylor, Editor In Chief.

HHTM articles and reporting have been cited and republished frequently over the last several years by authoritative sources inside and outside the hearing industry, including HHTM news reports cited in the influential "PCAST" report from the Obama Whitehouse in the fall of 2015.

“When I was first invited to work on the blogs, I hardly knew what a blog was… and I am not too sure many of our authors knew either. I had probably been to a blog but did not really know the term for it. It has really been hard work – but lots of fun – to be part of a blog that has gone from zero hits to millions of hits over the past 7 years. I must say, however, that the dedication of our initial investment team, our web site administrator and our authors that spent hours and hours of their time putting together blogs for our site once per week has allowed it to get to where it is today,” said Dr. Robert Traynor, editor of Hearing International.

The editors of Hearing Health & Technology Matters regularly add fresh content, including the latest industry news, so be sure to visit the website regularly for new articles. To view a full list of editors, visit: hearinghealthmatters.org/about-hearing-health-matters.
