Comprehensive Hearing Assessments By Audiologists

Detailed Evaluation of Your Hearing Performance.

Our comprehensive audiology hearing assessments provide a thorough evaluation of your hearing, measuring the performance of both ears in various environments, including quiet and noisy settings. This in-depth analysis helps us understand your hearing abilities and identify any issues that may need attention.

Why Choose a Comprehensive Hearing Assessment?

Understanding the difference between a free hearing check and a comprehensive hearing test is essential. A free hearing check typically tests only 8 points of hearing and takes about 10 minutes. In contrast, our comprehensive 90-minute hearing assessment offers a much more detailed evaluation, ensuring you receive the most accurate results and tailored recommendations.

What to Expect During Your Hearing Assessment

Our comprehensive hearing assessment includes the following steps:

  • Detailed Case History: We gather information about your hearing health and any concerns you may have.
  • Ear Canal and Ear Drum Inspection: A thorough examination to check for any issues or obstructions.
  • Ear Wax Removal: If necessary, we provide ear wax removal services (additional charges may apply).
  • Middle Ear and Auditory Pathway Assessment: Evaluating the performance and integrity of your middle ear and auditory pathway to the brain.
  • Pure Tone Audiometry: Assessing up to 34 points of hearing to ensure a detailed understanding of your hearing capabilities.
  • Speech Performance Testing: Measuring your ability to hear and understand speech in both quiet and noisy environments.
  • GP or Specialist Report: Providing detailed reports to your GP or specialist if required.
  • Hearing Aid Discussion/Prescription: Discussing hearing aid options and prescriptions if needed.

Frequently asked questions.

Do I need a referral?

As of 1st of March 2023, GP’s are able to refer for a hearing assessment that can be partly claimed back through Medicare. This means you can claim up around $62 for a full comprehensive hearing assessment.
Please note, you will need a GP referral in order to be eligible.

What are my funding options?

There are a number of funding options available depending on your individual circumstances. We suggest reading our Funding Options page here to get more information.

What’s the difference between a ‘free hearing check’ and a ’hearing assessment’?

A ‘free hearing check’ takes about five minutes to complete and tests four points of your hearing, providing a simple pass or fail result. A hearing assessment is a more thorough investigation of your hearing and will take between 45 and 90 minutes to complete.
