Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Do I need two hearing aids, or is one enough?

A: For most people, binaural amplification (two hearing aids) will produce the best outcome, and roughly three quarters of all fittings today are binaural. This setup is designed to mimic the natural benefit of two ears, giving you greater speech clarity, sound comfort, and better ability to locate the source of sounds.

Q: What kind of ongoing service / support do you offer?

A: We’ll assist you at every step of the way, from fitting and programming, all the way to counseling to assist you in achieving a successful outcome. We also offer ongoing maintenance and support services.

Q: What are some of the types of hearing aids you compare?

A: We compare multiple brands and types of hearing aids. Some of the types of hearing aids we compare are: Completely in Canal, In the Ear/ In the Canal, Micro Behind The Ear, and Behind the Ear.

Q: Will other people be able to tell I’m wearing a hearing aid?

A: It depends on the hearing aid. Some of the newer types of hearing aids, like Micro Behind The Ear, are extremely inconspicuous. Others can be installed completely in the ear canal, making them essentially 100% invisible.

Q: Can I get government assistance or a private health insurance rebate on my hearing aid?

A: Government assistance for hearing aids is available under the ‘Australian Government Hearing Services Program’. If you’re an Australian citizen or permanent resident with a Pensioner concession card, DVA / Gold Card, or are a recipient of a Centrelink sickness allowance, you may be eligible. Private Health Insurance rebates are available on some extras policies from most funds. We can help you determine your eligibility.

Q: How much does a hearing aid cost?

A: Hearing aids vary significantly in cost, and there’s almost certainly a product that meets your budget. Prices are often a function of how sophisticated and miniaturized the hearing aid is, and this can range from very basic to highly sophisticated. The extent of your hearing loss and your specific requirements are important factors in determining which product is right for you.
