Discover Better Hearing at AudioClinic

Helpful hearing infoIf you were to pause for a moment to consider how good you are at listening and communicating in different situations, how would you rate your abilities?

If you sometimes find it hard to keep up, and you often feel tired and overwhelmed, it is important to consider the cause. You may be in great shape physically but what condition is your hearing in?

Hearing is one of our most precious senses and with hearing loss we often lose contact with the people we love and the world in general.

Ask Yourself Some Questions

Ask yourself the following questions to make a quick assessment about your hearing health:

  • Do people seem to be mumbling?
  • Do you have to strain to hear when someone talks or whispers?
  • Do you have difficulties hearing someone call you from behind or from another room
  • Do you need to watch a speaker’s lips more closely to follow conversation?
  • Do you find it hard to keep up in meetings, restaurants or in lectures?
  • Do you have to turn up the volume on the television or radio?
  • Do you find it hard to hear clearly on the telephone?
  • Do you have difficulties at the theatre, cinema or other entertainment venues?
  • Do you find it hard to hear in noisy environments like the street or in a car?
  • Do you limit your social activities because it’s difficult to hear and communicate?
  • Do family, friends or colleagues mention that they often have to repeat themselves?

If you answered yes to some of these questions, don’t be disheartened. It does not necessarily mean you have a hearing loss – you might just have a build up of earwax. Only a comprehensive hearing test from one of our professional Clinicians, Australia wide, can tell you for certain. Book your FREE Hearing Test* online today.

Visiting our Hearing Clinics

When you visit one of our hearing clinics you will be in caring hands. Our Clinician will listen to your concerns and conduct a comprehensive hearing test at no charge to you*.

It takes less than an hour to get an accurate evaluation and the process is completely painless. The hearing test takes place in a quiet room or sound-proof booth, where you will put on a headset, sit comfortably and listen.

The Audiologist will play a series of pure whistling tones – from bass through to treble – and you press a buzzer when you can hear them. From this hearing test the Audiologist will be able to tell you:

  • How much you can hear in each ear
  • How well you hear the loudness and pitch of different sounds
  • What impact this has on your ability to communicate
