  •  Wax Removal

Visit our dedicated Hearing Test Service page to learn more about our state-of-the-art testing methods and how we can help you achieve optimal hearing health.

Hearing Aid Fittings

Our expert audiologists provide tailored hearing aid fittings for those who require hearing aid devices.

The process includes:

  1. Discussion and selection of the best device based on the hearing test results and individual needs. Our hearing specialists take into account lifestyle, cosmetics, cost, hearing needs, ear canal shape and most importantly, personal preference of each client.
  2. As an Independent Hearing Aid Provider, our Audiologists can choose from world-wide brands and are not limited by choice as many big hearing aid companies are. All our clients are offered a free 30 day trial to really make sure the device is perfect for them.
  3. Individual customisation of the hearing aid settings to optimise performance in various listening environments. This involves working together and finetuning the aids to match the hearing loss as well as acclimatisation to all the new sounds being heard. We adjust the device so they sound really natural and not tinny or false.
  4. Education on proper usage, care and maintenance of the device. We have specialised staff who spend as much time as is required to really make sure each person feels really comfortable and confident using their hearing aid.
  5. Dedicated Bluetooth and wireless streaming support to connect you and your devices to all your phone, TV, tablet and computer needs.
  6. Regular follow-up appointments to ensure the hearing aid is functioning well and providing maximum benefit. These appointments are free of charge for the lifetime of the device because we believe that your hearing aids should cater for you throughout many years no matters what your hearing loss or changing lifestyle needs. For example, a patient may like to start learning a musical instrument and we can then design a Music Setting for them with their devices to make this sound really clear and natural.
  7. Counselling and communication strategies to help with hearing in background noise, helping with tinnitus, managing relationships and optimising your experience.

Tinnitus Management

Tinnitus, the perception of a sound when there is no external noise, can be frustrating and negatively impact quality of life. Our Audiologists offer a range of tinnitus management strategies to help minimise its effects, which may include:

  • Sound therapy: using external sounds to mask or distract from the tinnitus
  • Counselling: understanding and learning to cope with tinnitus
  • Relaxation techniques: managing stress and anxiety associated with tinnitus
  • Fitting of specific Tinnitus Masking hearing aids which have dedicated programs to provide sound stimulation to help with tinnitus.
  • Fitting of Lyric – the worlds first 100% invisible hearing aid worn 24/7 for months at a time. Allowing you to sleep with the Lyric in place means you get relief from your tinnitus at night which is usually when most people notice it the worst. This means better quality sleep, less stress and overall better mental health.

Our audiologists work closely with the individual to develop a personalised management plan, focusing on improving general well-being and reducing the burden of tinnitus.

Frequently Asked Questions

Hearing aids in Adelaide can vary in price, depending on the brand, model, and features selected. Prices typically range from $500 to $4250 per device. It is essential to consider that more expensive hearing aids may offer additional features and higher sound quality. However, less expensive options can still provide adequate hearing assistance for many individuals.

We recommend seeking guidance from an audiologist who has thoroughly tested your hearing, discussed your difficulties and looks at your budget and lifestyle to try the best choice. We also recommend seeking advice from an Independent Audiologist to determine the most suitable hearing aid for your specific needs without any bias. Hearing Sense are an independently owned hearing clinic with no ties to certain manufacturers. We fit all brands of hearing aids.

An audiologist is a healthcare professional who holds a minimum of two degrees including a Masters in Audiology. They are trained to diagnose, treat and manage hearing issues and balance disorders. They work with patients of all ages, from infants to the elderly, and offer various services, including hearing testing, hearing aid fitting, cochlear implant programming and advice and auditory rehabilitation.

An audiometrist is a healthcare professional who studies an Audiometry course through Tafe. They may or may not have an undergraduate degree as well. They specifically focus on hearing assessment, diagnosis of hearing disorders and treatment with hearing devices.

A hearing aid specialist, on the other hand, is a professional who focuses solely on fitting, adjusting, and maintaining hearing aids. They do not evaluate or diagnose hearing issues and typically do not have the same level of education as an audiologist or audiometrist.

Hearing Sense offers a wide range of hearing aid brands to ensure that each individual’s unique hearing needs and preferences are met. Some of the leading brands available through Hearing Sense include Lyric, Phonak, Oticon, Starkey, Signia, Widex, Bernafon, Sonic, Unitron and Resound.

By offering a diverse selection of top-quality hearing aids, Hearing Sense ensures the best possible hearing solutions for their clients with no purchasing bias. Many clinics in Adelaide are owned by hearing aid manufacturers and will only offer that brand of hearing device. This is not the case with Hearing Sense.

Compared to other audiologists in Adelaide, Hearing Sense maintains a strong reputation for professionalism and true customer satisfaction. This is shown in the many testimonials given by very happy clients who have experienced the ultimate in care on their hearing journey.

The choice between visiting a doctor or an audiologist for ear-related issues often depends on the specific problem. Originally, a general practitioner (GP) should be consulted for acute issues such as ear pain, infections, or sudden hearing loss. They can then determine if a referral to an audiologist is necessary for further evaluation and specialised treatment. On the other hand, if the concern is related to hearing loss, tinnitus, or balance issues, a direct visit to an audiologist is recommended for timely and specialised care.

In the case of sudden hearing loss, it is vital to get tested as soon as possible and mention sudden hearing loss when you are booking in so we can prioritise the urgency. Sudden hearing loss is sometimes reversible providing treatment is started within 12 – 48 hours.
