THE sweet sound of success is ringing in the ears of Harpenden-based audiologist Robert Beiny.

He has been voted European Audiologist of the Year by the European Union of Hearing Acousticians (EUHA) in Nuremburg, Germany.

Mr Beiny founded and currently runs the Hearing Healthcare Practice in Harpenden and has been practicing audiology, the study of hearing loss and balance, for over 30 years.

He said: "This is the biggest award an audiologist can win during their career and it's particularly rewarding that it's voted for by patients and recognised by my peers,"

One came from Herts resident Sue Reeves after Mr. Beiny helped her father Charles Peck when he suffered from a stroke. He visited Mr Peck in hospital and, after fixing his original hearing aid, was able to recommend a better device as a replacement.
