Choosing the right device for your hearing needs depends on many things such as degree, type and configuration of your hearing loss, lifestyle, ear shape, manual and cognitive dexterity, cosmetic appearances, and budget.
Treatment Device Selection
When it comes to selecting a treatment device our independence means we have a very large range of devices to treat your hearing loss. Including a wide variety of features, rehabilitation packages, and price ranges, from $200 to $3000. All hearing solutions no matter what price range are of the highest quality, and you are not necessarily paying for better hearing with more expensive hearing aids, you are paying for more features but some have nothing to do with hearing speech better. In fact there is no independent peer reviewed research that validates any improvement in outcomes between lower level technology and high level technology (click here to see published article on hearing aid pricing/features in Audiology Australia publication) .
You can trust that our Audiologists are only going to recommend what you require as they are not on commissions and are adhere strictly to our company policy of recommendation and treatment based on the Audiological Society of Australia membership charter Section A2: “The welfare of the client, students, research subjects and the public must take precedence over a member’s self interest, or the interest of employers or colleagues”. and Section A15: “Any device recommended to a client, or to another professional for a client, must not be less suitable for the client than other available devices, taking into account the likely performance of the device, features of the device, the cost of the device to the client, and the preference of the client”.
With our hearing aids we unbundle all the services and also offer several options for you to choose from. So you simply purchase your hearing aid for a minimal cost just above wholesale price (scroll down to see full pricing and product list) then choose which treatment best suits your needs to accompany the hearing aid. Our pricing margins are the same across all ranges as we are billing for our time and expertise to cover our costs, not the sale of hearing aids, so there is no incentive for prescription of anything other than what is required to suit your needs. You can even purchase hearing aids elsewhere or bring your old hearing aids and we still adjust them or you can do our treatment programs.
At Clarity Hearing Solutions we also understand that it isn’t just your hearing needs that are unique and require a broad range of treatment devices, but your financial requirements are also just as diverse. This is why we strive to provide unique plans and packages to best deliver your hearing treatment to suit everyone’s financial situation. At Clarity Hearing Solutions we offer several options for obtaining your treatment devices. Purchasing, No Gap Private Health Insurance Options (Click here for a list of Private Health Insurance policies and rebate amounts), and purchase-free ClarityFlex subscription plans. Furthermore discreet options including CIC’s, ITC’s, and RIC/OTE’s are available free for all eligible recipients through the Office of Hearing Services program (OHS) (click here for information on the OHS scheme).

When it comes to selecting a treatment device there a wide variety of features available in modern hearing aids. However it should be remembered that most hearing aids, no matter what price range, are usually of the highest quality, and you are not necessarily getting better hearing if purchasing more advanced features. In fact there is no independent peer reviewed research that validates any improvement in outcomes between lower level technology and high level technology (click here to see published article on hearing aid pricing/features in Audiology Australia publication) .
However most of the features listed below are available in all hearing aid ranges and basic features such as directional microphones, telecoils and Bluetooth connectivity have been independently shown to significantly improve hearing and communication outcomes.
