Wanted: Aussies Over 60 To Trial Incredible New Invisible Hearing Aids

Don’t even think about buying a hearing aid until you read this…

On February 25, 1966 Time Magazine famously said “Remote shopping, while entirely feasible, will flop.”[1] If you were alive when this was published, you know just how wrong they were. You’ve also seen first-hand how much technology has advanced since then.

You may also remember what the average hearing aid was like around this time—large, uncomfortable, and awkward looking. Most people who needed them were too self-conscious about the way they looked to even consider trying one out.

Not only was Time Magazine’s prediction about online shopping entirely wrong, hearing aid technology made enormous advances during this time as well. The hearing aids your parents may have worn are a thing of the past and the only place you’ll find them these days is in an antique shop.

Today, it’s entirely possible to get a hearing aid that’s so discreet it’s practically invisible. Some can even connect to your smartphone, TV, laptop or almost any other Bluetooth enabled device, even certain cars with Bluetooth capabilities.

Our professionals at Hearing Aid Finder are all Australian themselves—so we understand the needs of Aussies, and that all of these advances in technology lead to a lot of uncertainties and questions. That’s why when you attend our free hearing test you get access to a team of experts who understand your needs and could potentially get you started on your journey to regain the freedom that comes with hearing every wonderful sound life has to offer.

4 Things You Need to Know About Modern Hearing Aids, Saving Money, And Our Free Hearing Test

  1. Our free hearing test starts by connecting you with a local specialist who will administer a free hearing test to determine your level of hearing loss. Your specialist will then be able to discuss your options with you and help you identify a more personalised option to fit your exact needs.
  2. Most hearing aid programs will allow you to take your new hearing aid home and trial it for a period of time with no obligation to purchase.[2] This way you’re 100% sure it’s the right option for you. This trial period can vary between hearing clinics. Our team of experts can answer any questions you may have about it.
  3. A service offered by the Australian Department of Health offers a voucher program that may help you obtain free or subsidised hearing services and devices. Not everyone qualifies for this program, but a large number of Aussies aged 60 or older may. There are many categories you could fall under in order to qualify. The two most common are those Aussies who hold a Pensioner Concession Card, or a Veterans Affairs Gold or White Card.[3] We suggest speaking with one of our experts to see if you qualify.
  4. If you receive a hearing device under this program you can also obtain maintenance of your hearing device, and a supply of batteries (if needed, some modern hearing aids are rechargeable) for a small yearly fee.[4]

If you’re ready to regain the joy that comes with clearly hearing the sounds of life, our free service can get you started on the right path, and it’s much faster and easier than you’d think. In only a few short minutes you could be on your way to enjoying your favorite music once again—and joining in on all of the conversations between friends and family that you’ve been missing out on.
