Active Ear: Our Story

Active Ear is a family-owned practice that is local to the Fox Valley Area. Our goal is to help as many people as possible hear better, by simply providing hearing solutions people will be happy with at prices they can live with.

Our owner and hearing specialist, Jim Lippold, has been working in the field of audiology for over 10 years.

He trained and and worked with his father for many years, learning a vast amount about both the auditory system and hearing aids. He has also worked as a hearing specialist in an ENT setting.
