Despite hearing problems ranking as the second most common physical condition in the country, only 1 in 4 Australians who could benefit from a hearing aid actually have one. For some it’s because they assume they can’t afford it, for others it’s how they look. Whatever the case, people wait an average of 7 years before they seek help for hearing loss.

From the outside, finding a quality, affordable hearing aid is a difficult and time-consuming task – that’s where Hearing Aid Finder comes in. It’s a free online service that connects you with local audiologists for your complimentary hearing test. But that’s just the start.

From there you can trial different hearing aids, like completely in-ear devices that are completely invisible to others. Our friendly audiologists can also talk you through your options for both government and private health insurance subsidies that can make your device more affordable.

Here’s How You Do It:

Step 1: Select your state below.
Step 2: After answering a few questions, you will have the opportunity to book a free hearing test near you and could be eligible for significant savings on hearing aids.
