Comprehensive Audiology Hearing Assessments

Measure the hearing performance of both your ears.

Our comprehensive hearing assessments involve a thorough investigation of your hearing where we measure the performance of both ears to get a clear understanding of how well your hearing works in quiet and noisy environments.

During your hearing assessment, we will focus on results and outcomes. We take the time to explain your results so you’re comfortable with our recommendations.

It’s important to know the difference between a free hearing check and a comprehensive hearing test.

A free hearing check will usually just test 8-points-of-hearing, and takes around 10 minutes.

Our comprehensive 90-minute hearing assessment is significantly more thorough and includes:

  • Comprehensive case history.
  • Ear canal and ear drum inspection.
  • Wax removal if necessary (separate charges may apply).
  • The performance, and integrity of the middle ear and auditory pathway to the brain if necessary.
  • Pure Tone Audiometry, assessing up to 34 points of hearing.
  • Speech performance in quiet and in noise.
  • GP or specialist report if needed.
  • Hearing aid discussion/prescription if needed.

Please note, we are government accredited, so if you are NDIS, DVA or on a Pension, you may be eligible to have this service fully subsidised under the Hearing Services Program.

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.
