Hearing Aids

Your hearing is important to us.  Let us help you explore the latest hearing technology and get back to living life to the full.

We are independent from hearing aid manufacturers and can fit any brand of hearing device.  Our audiologists are not paid commissions to fit hearing devices, as discussed by ACCC:

Edgecliff Hearing audiologists are experts at matching the best technology to suite your individual hearing needs.  The right hearing aid depends on individual differences such as the degree and type of hearing loss you have.  The right hearing aid also needs to suit your lifestyle and personal preferences.

Hearing aids come in several styles:

The most advanced and recommended styles are:

  • Completely-In-Canal (CIC) – Fitted inside each ear canal, CIC devices are all but invisible from the outside.
  • Receiver-In-The-Ear (RITE) – Smaller than an open ear fitting with the speaker in the ear canal for superior sound reproduction.
  • Completely-In-Canal (CIC) – Custom-made and fitted inside the ear canal. CIC devices are all but invisible from the outside.
  • Invisible-In-Canal (IIC) – Custom-made and fitted deeper in the canal.  IIC devices are completely invisible in most ears.

Assistive Listening Devices

Examples of alternative listening devices include television headphones and personal amplifiers. These are suitable if you need hearing assistance only in certain situations, such as watching TV, or if you have some other disability and therefore cannot manage a hearing aid.

When the problem of background noise or listening over distance remains a big problem even after hearing devices are fitted, then an FM system can help.  The system consists of a remote microphone and transmitter placed near the sound source.  The FM transmitter sends the sound by FM signal to an FM receiver worn by the listener.

Wireless Devices and Bluetooth

Wireless add-on devices are the latest addition to the range of accessories designed to enhance your lifestyle. These range from Bluetooth streamers for your mobile phone, to TV streamers, to wirelessly-streaming microphones. The aim of this technology is to bring a speaker’s voice, television or even music, closer to you without having to worry about background noise. If you have a hearing aid in both ears, then you will hear the person speaking in both ears. If you are listening to music or television, you will hear it in stereo.
