About Hear and Learn

Established in 2002 and Australian owned, Hear and Learn operates Australia wide supplying and supporting Lightspeed (US) soundfield/classroom audio solutions.

We offer free trials of our technology in existing schools, free design advice for architects, infrastructure and electrical people for new buildings and refurbs, and telephone, online and service call support.

We love helping learners and teachers alike and do our best to offer solutions and support built on simplicity and practicality. We offer technology that requires no licences, minimal upkeep and no software upgrades. Our UConnect range features agile plug-and-play solutions which seamlessly integrate into any learning environment.

Our teacher microphones are the smallest in the market and our speaker solutions are low footprint and compliment design and aesthetic.

We support educators in delivering optimal auditory learning in whole group and differentiated learning environments in traditional learning spaces right through to collaborate learning spaces.

David Downing

David created Hear and Learn after experiencing first hand the power of better listening conditions having been a professional musician for many years. He thought that if we know adults enjoy a concert more if they can hear every note, why don’t we create the same environment for learners. Hence, Hear and Learn!

David – a keen golfer, dog owner and with unhealthy obsession with 80’s hits – welcomes your contact. And with an Australia-wide team, is at your service.
