Everyone’s hearing loss is different, and so too are your hearing aid needs.A hearing aid should be as individual as you are and at ‘My Audiologist’ we offer some of the most innovative, programmable devices available anywhere in the world. Whether you’re an experienced or new hearing aid user our range offers a variety of solutions that can be perfectly matched to your hearing, lifestyle, and budget needs. Your Hearing Professional at ‘My Audiologist’  is the best person to give you unbiased advice about the best hearing instrument options, following a thorough diagnostic assessment of your hearing and an in-depth discussion of your hearing needs. However, it is wise to be informed about available options for the best possible hearing outcome.

Recent improvements in hearing aid technology means that hearing loss encompassing a wide range are now aid able and  can be successfully fitted by cosmetically appealing hearing instruments… These may include a range of custom-fitted in the ear instruments such as CIC/IIC devices or discreet behind the ear options like RITE aids.

CIC and IIC devices are the smallest hearing aids available today. They sit deeply in the ear canal and dependant on your ear anatomy may be virtually invisible. These tiny instruments can be powerful as well as sophisticated, which means they can be fitted to large losses, whereas in the past much larger instruments were needed.

Receiver in the ear (RITE) hearing instruments are the second smallest type of hearing instruments available today. These devices are highly versatile and comfortable. They feature advanced options such as Bluetooth wireless streaming, connecting you to a range of digital devices including mobile phones, MP3 players and TV wirelessly.

Hearing aids need to be programmed accurately by an experienced audiologist to ensure that every aspect of the technology is utilised to enhance your listening experience.

We always consider your individual circumstances to work out if additional devices may be of benefit to you.

A range of accessories have been designed to integrate with your hearing aids and other digital devices. Accessories include: remote controls, hearing aid charger units, wireless TV options, Bluetooth phone adaptors, personal FM units, Assistive Listening devices and amplified telephones.

 


THE COST OF HEARING AIDS

According to ASIC(The Australian Securities and Investment Commission) report; every week the average Australian household spends $160 per week on luxury goods and recreation. That’s $22 a day on things that aren’t necessary: Coffee, chocolate, hobbies, and other nice things.

Are you willing to pay $2.20 a day for your health and well-being?

That’s how much an average pair of hearing aids will cost you over 5 years. That’s about $4000 a pair, that will last you 5 years. That’s $800 a year, $15.40 a week, or $2.20 a day.

Why quality Hearing Aids are worth paying for

  • You’re paying for the whole service, not just the device: Not only are you getting a pair of hearing aids, you’re also paying for a qualified Audiologist to make sure you’re fitted for the hearing aids that will best suit your lifestyle.
  • Improving Hearing Aid technology costs money: Scientific research is being conducted by leading engineers to make hearing aids better. This research costs money – Governments offset some of the cost of research but a lot of if it must come from the consumer.
  • Supply and Demand: The market for hearing aids isn’t terribly large, so each consumer pays a higher proportion of the cost of research and maintenance. If everyone had hearing aids, just like mobile phones or computers, the cost to each consumer would decrease.

Now you can see why it is important to have a qualified Audiologist test and fit your hearing aids for you. This will cost less in the long run, and provide peace of mind, knowing that your hearing aids will work properly from Day One.
