Our favourite sounds of autumn!

The weather has taken a little turn this week and it feels like it’s about time to get the raincoats out…


Autumn Leaves

Autumn is my absolute favourite season, it can be such a beautiful time of year and the sounds of autumn are just perfect. Perhaps the sound that resonates with autumn the most is the crunching of leaves underfoot. The leaves will soon begin to change to their red / brown colours and will drop to the ground.

With this in mind, we know a lot of you like to take the time to prepare your garden before the winter months. As always, we must advise that you protect your hearing whilst using any loud garden machinery. Leaf blowers, lawn mowers and hedge trimmers are all very loud and the only way to ensure you won’t experience any damage to your hearing is to wear ear protection.


Rainy Weather

Another of my favourite sounds of autumn is the rain. The pitter-patter of rain drops onto leaves, our roofs and into puddles can be very calming and stress relieving. Our ears don’t have any protective fat tissues meaning they can cool down quite quickly leaving us susceptible to the cold and wet conditions. There is also only a thin layer of skin surrounding the nerves in your ear canal so cold / wet weather can cause ear pain. Keeping your ears covered during cool weather will prevent any reduction in blood flow and reduce any risk of ear pain / infection. Who doesn’t love an ear muff!


Rustling Wind

During autumn, we can experience strong, relentless wind. How cosy is it to be sat in the lounge with a blanket when it’s blowing a gale outside and you can hear the wind rustling the leaves. Most modern hearing aids will be able to adapt to your environment and may have a weather management system. This is important so that you are still able to join in conversations while out on windy days.


Bonfire Night Celebrations

Bonfire Night isn’t until the beginning of next month but it is an event that a lot of people celebrate and we all know it’s a noisy one! The crackling bonfire and spectacular fireworks are amazing sensory experiences. We do strongly advise that you wear a form of ear protection if you go to a fireworks display. Fireworks can reach very high decibels and could cause long term damage to your hearing if you don’t protect them.


Enjoy the best month of the year and take lots of photos of the autumn beauty. As always, if you need any advice or support, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
