Prolonged exposure to loud noise undermines the delicate structures of the inner ear, and can result in progressive hearing loss. People working (or playing) with building, mowing, farming, chain saws, shooting and the music industry or anywhere noise is unavoidable and constant, should invest in a Hearing Protection Device (HPD). The latest advances block harmful volume but still allow communication.
There are a number of leading manufacturers with a staggering amount of different types of hearing aids available. This can be very confusing, particularly when you are coming to terms with using a hearing aid for the first time. Audiology South will help you navigate through the choices to select a product best suited to your particular level of hearing loss, your lifestyle and your personal preferences.
We’ll check your hearing with relevant hearing tests ranging from a free basic listening check to confirm if you have any hearing loss, to in-depth diagnostic checks measuring middle ear and eardrum health as well as the brain’s ability to detect and discriminate sounds.
We make it easy for GP's to refer. Talk to us about getting some handy referral pads.

How often should my hearing aid be serviced or upgraded?
Hearing clinics and patients alike are thrilled that hearing aids have come a long way in the past few years. These days, they’re not only more advanced integrating the best of digital sound technology, they’ve become smaller, funkier and less visible. What’s more, technology has revolutionised their maintenance and the latest smartphone apps allow you the user to keep them at peak performance with ease. An annual check with the experts at your hearing clinic is recommended to ensure the adjustments are correct and tuned correctly.
